Hello Everyone! Welcome aboard!
I’m so happy and proud to be making the first post on my BRAND NEW website!! This little project has been in the works for months and has had a few hiccoughs along the way–but like anything worth doing, I’ve kept at it and here it is.
You can read a little bit about me in my bio here, but I’m hoping this post will give you a better understanding of who I am, what I do, and why I LOVE what I do 🙂
I’m a photographer. I’m a mom. Sometimes I’m a short-order cook. I love to read, crochet (baby blankets, yay!), and play with my kids. I adore traveling, though these days it’s more “dreaming about traveling.” I have a strong love of music and Music Education. And I worked for years in Early Childhood Education. So now I combine two of my greatest passions–having fun with kids and photography!
Abbott Images started as a tiny dream, deep in my heart. I’ve had the domain name registered for years. But in 2011, I set aside my nerves and decided to see if I could nurture that dream into something I knew could be fulfilling and exciting.
My goal is to be able to provide families with beautiful, professional portraits at a price point that allows them to have frequent sessions as their children and their families grow. Maybe it’s because I have two young children myself, maybe it’s because I’ve worked with young children for years–but I’m keenly aware of just how FAST it all goes by! Have you ever been playing in the yard with one of your kids, laughing in the sunlight, giggling while playing chase, and thought, “I wish there was someone to take a picture of this? This perfect, silly moment needs to be remembered!”
That’s what I’d love to be for all of you 🙂
So I do everything I can to keep my prices as reasonable as possible. I want you to be able to have a session with your newborn and then come back again in 6 months when you look down and realize how much that baby has already changed. I know that these moments are precious to you—and I want you to know they’re precious to me too. I want your session to be relaxed, easy-going, stress free, and FUN! Filled with real smiles, rather than nagging. Overflowing with your personalities! And I want you to have the best experience possible from start to finish.
If you ever have any questions, please feel free to get in touch!
