I am a Breathtaking Photographer, PCOS and Hypothyroid Mom, Number Cruncher, Oil Lover, doTERRA Educator and Leader ! Empowering others to be healthier and happier… naturally!
As a lifestyle photographer my subjects range from my own family to landscapes, animals, flowers, sports, nature, our community, essential oils and of course the fun snapshots of life! Within everything we do there will always be a moment worth capturing and remembering. Creating and living a healthy, simple, balanced, happy life.
How could I begin to describe myself. . .
I am very much like my Photography. Natural, Real and Simple.
I am a MOM to two of the best kids I could have ever asked for and blessed with both a Son and Daughter. Being a mom is one of the most challenging and rewarding time of my life. My life truly has been enriched with my two little’s in my life and they have helped shape me into the woman I am today. These two have taught me more about myself, than I ever knew before and I am thankful where this journey through motherhood has taken me, to this path that we’ve been led down is our perfect fit!
I am also blessed to be a FUR MOM to two pets who I wouldn’t call our family one without, our cat and dog! I am also a FEATHER MOM to our parrot, thankfully she prefer’s men 😉
I am a WIFE to a very hardworking family man who I am proud of for our own family but also because he has joined my family business as well and is incredibly supportive of me! He has a fabulous talent for construction of all kinds and is a wonderful father! He truly is my best friend and even when life isn’t perfect I couldn’t imagine my life without him.
I am a wife, mother and most importantly ME!
What makes ME? My love of memories, photography, my family, husband, children, my close friends, wine, music, cooking, boating, outdoors, warm sunshine, sweet light, green grass, beautiful landscape, nature, the beach, water, my pets, animals, my kids sports, Essential Oils. Not all in that order but its all a true reflection of who I am. Each part of what makes up me, I love photographing!
I embrace the road of life and capture this crazy-beautiful journey with my camera 😉
Photography has given me the gift of appreciation and an even deeper love of the arts. Growing up I enjoyed studio arts with charcoal, pencil and water colour paints. After the birth of our first child my artistic passion was embraced through photography. An artist sees the world in a completely different view, there is beauty in everything and everyone we come across and my passion is capturing my journey through life.
I am an avid watcher of Young & The Restless and I LOVE home improvement shows on HGTV with fav’s being Bryan Baeumler, Property Brothers, Love it or List it and Scott McGillvary!
I am a lover of Essential Oils and a very proud doTERRA Wellness Advocate, Educator and Leader! Our family is now avid daily users of our doTERRA Essential Oils, Supplements, Beauty & Spa Products for our well being. It truly is amazing how something so natural can have such a great impact on our lives. For us as a family and as individuals, I feel I am a better person, and a better mom since we began living with essential oils.
I live everyday with Invisible Illnesses. With each passing day, I am becoming more comfortable and more at home in my body as along my journey through life I also learn to live with these illnesses. I have Endometriosis, Hypothyroidism and PCOS. Upon my diagnosis many years ago I was very ashamed of myself, now I find blogging, reading and researching has empowered me to be the woman I am today and not hide behind these invisible illnesses! After all … they are a part of me. I am now basing many of my choices upon my own health and well being. Living a healthy, natural life with essential oils and supplements have quite honestly given me my life back. I now have energy I haven’t had in years. I am sleeping so much better, headaches are pretty well non existent and overall I feel good!
For me Photography is very much a part of me and my life, for me and my family. Photography is my artistic outlet, my passion, my comfort, my memories, my life. Life’s road has many twists, turns, hills, rockblocks and pot holes… its all a part of the journey. This is my journey through life… this is my passion for photography! My passion and love for art is how I named my site… Your Life As Art Photography! For me every moment in life can be art, its just the way you choose to embrace it!
I Am A Beautiful, Successful, Confident and Organized Woman
Living My Life Fearlessly & Passionately!
