Nice to meet you! Here are some things you should know about me: I’ve lived in West Michigan my whole life and I love it. I love having four seasons. Fall is my favorite. I’m a very competitive person, but not in an annoying way. I have a husband who is a champion runner (like he qualified for the Boston Marathon on his second marathon ever) and a toddler son who is a champion string-cheese-eater. I like camping and baking. And the beach. I’m introverted but I’ll make you laugh. I studied journalism and picked up photography in college. I love being behind the camera and editing is my favorite.
What’s with the name?
The short version:
Even so is part of a line in a hymn I like, and it flowed nicely.
The longer version:
Even so means:
In spite of that; nevertheless.
To me, photography is not about capturing the perfect picture. Photos that show the perfect family, location, smile, etc. are nice, but they don’t seem as real to me as photos that show one of the kids picking his nose in the background, or the tired-but-beautiful look on a mama’s face as she holds her new baby. Photos show our memories. They tell our stories. I hope to capture beautiful memories in every season of life. Even the days that have clutter, or dirt, or tired eyes.
