Gulf Breeze Photography

Who Am I?

I am an aspiring photographer located in Gulf Breeze, FL. My story starts out like the rest- sick and tired of my 9-5 (which was really an 8-6), never seeing my family, and constantly feeling guilty every time that I made time for myself. Sound familiar?

In June 2017, I had my first baby boy. He changed my life in ways I didn’t know needed changing. I started to see the world differently and made decisions for my family, instead of just myself. That being said, time was quickly passing by as I treaded on at my full time job. I knew I had to, somehow, make these moments with my son, and my Air Force husband, last. So I picked up my camera.

Learning photography, I quickly found out, was much harder than I expected! There’s so much that goes into a single shot that you would never guess! But, slowly but surely, I pursued my passion.

This year, I found out I was pregnant with our second child. We were beside ourselves when we found out! My husband, deploying just a few months later, suggested that I leave my job in order to rest and figure out what I truly wanted to do. So, underestimating our bills, I left my full time job and tried to get my life in order before this new baby was to arrive. I kissed my husband goodbye for what seems like the longest four months of my life, and started to figure out where I wanted to be in life.

Then, the unimaginable happened.

We lost our new baby.

Now, miscarriages are hard. Really hard. Miscarriages with a deployed husband might just be that much harder.

I dove into photography full force. Being behind my camera was, and is, an escape to me – my happy place. It’s a place where I can really capture those moments that can be just as awful as losing a precious baby, or just as amazing as welcoming in a new one. I finally knew where I belonged.

So, this is where I am now. A wife, a mother, a photographer. Just another person in this world, like you, trying to make the most of every moment that I have. Capturing as much as I can as I go.
