My husband snapping a quick picture on our walk today. This week, while I would love to just post more pictures of my kids, I think it's time to post about myself. So here goes!
I was raised in a small farming community in Kansas, and to be honest, wouldn’t change a thing. I love nature; green has always been my favorite color. I used to sit as a kid and listen to the sounds of nature. The wind rustling the corn fields, the frogs happily hopping by the water, and the faint sounds of a busy community only a mile away. I would go on bike rides that lasted hours and sometimes get lost only to have to call my dad from a distant neighbor's house. After all, in small town Kansas, everyone is your neighbor!
Fast forward a few years to when I met my husband, or I should say when he met me. We had always known each other, but I transferred to his school at 13 and was smitten! I was 15 when we started dating and had made googly eyes at him in church for several years prior. He didn't fail to notice and neither did my dad for that matter! We fell madly in love and although we have both grown and changed, our feelings have not faded. We still laugh everyday and I treasure him as my best friend in the world.
We moved to Arizona in 2008 and we now have two adorable kiddos (see my previous posts!!). I am a full-time mom by choice and a photographer by chance. I love art and had always thought my chance to be an artist would come in painting or writing, although all of my attempts proved otherwise. One of my best friends and now my business partner is the one who planted the seed...and now we are K&K Photography!
I love the passion of photography; making people see themselves as others see them seems like the chance of a lifetime. Sometimes I am so overwhelmed by this chance that I can't even describe the feeling I get behind the camera. I am so appreciative of all my blessings!
