Welcome to the blog! I’m a small-town Florida girl and Army wife relocated to the Seattle Suburbs, documenting love from one coast to the other. I live for a good PNW mountain breeze, sweat pants, and local eats. Let's be friends!
I’m not a huge quotes person but there’s something about the greek term “meraki” that always comes back to me. It translates to “to do something with soul, creativity, or love; when you leave a piece of yourself in your work.” It sums up the way I feel about every aspect of my journey to launching MMP. Every time I press send on a gallery or post another picture, it feels like I’m letting a piece of my heart go out into the world. Sorry I had to get deep there for a second. 😉 The anticipation of our website release has been exciting yet scary all at the same time. I think I have probably changed everything at least three times, questioning how I felt about each little detail. I’m sure it’s not done and a forever growing and changing project but, for now, it’s exactly how it should be.
I have to take a second to thank my husband for not only supporting me and pushing me to embark on this adventure but also, for his hand in it. He’s pretty tech savvy and I’m sure that I’m only launching now because of his help behind the scenes. He’s kept me grounded and I’m so incredibly lucky to have him.
I also have to thank two of my friends and fellow photographers. I am so very fortunate to have had their guidance and support. Sierra – thank you for teaching me to follow my heart and showing me that I can have a successful and creative career. In so many ways, you have helped me to get to where I am today and I am beyond thankful for you! Laura – thanks for kicking me in the butt and making sure I ACTUALLY finished the site. I’m pretty sure I got at least a text from you every day to see how my progress was going and that’s exactly what I needed while I was dragging my feet along. You are such an inspiration and positive influence on my life and career!
Thank you to my family, friends and clients for all of your support and cheers to new beginnings!
