They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, and I love to challenge myself by capturing a story with a single image. I love taking photos and finding inspiration wherever I can. I love capturing people in their natural elements. I love photographing children as their innocence reminds me to choose joy. I love to find beauty within a subject, even when others don’t find it so beautiful. I love the challenge of creating art with a photograph.


Many of you have asked me who takes the photos for SAVVY SOIRÉE –well, I do! While my interest in photography began with people as my subject, I’ll have to say that creating art–whether food or landscapes or people–is certainly my current focus.


Although I’ve always had a passion for photography, it wasn’t until about 5 years ago when inheriting my first SLR camera that I made it into a more serious hobby. I also love that you can always learn something new in photography. I’m honored to have studied under several talented photographers, including Sarah Barlow who, in my mind, is not only insanely talented but has a heart of gold and is such an inspiration behind the camera and beyond! Thanks so much, Sarah, for capturing the photo above!


If you’re like me and want to further your photography hobby, I recommend investing in an SLR camera and taking a couple of lessons to learn about your camera…and practice, practice, practice! But don’t forget to enJOY taking photos! Photography can definitely be frustrating when first learning your camera but once you get the hang of it, it is so much fun and will become your new favorite accessory!


Photography is one of the reasons I wanted to create SAVVY SOIRÉE–that, and I have a passion for entertaining! Thank you for your support and encouragement as we capture memories, traveling this creative journey together!
