Hello from sunny San Diego! It's me, Wendy- wife, mother, daughter, sister, photographer. I have four beautifully energetic children ages 9, 7, 5, and 3. You can imagine that the walls of my house used to be white and the car I drove used to be Cheerio and juice box free. But amidst all the buckling and unbuckling of car seats, the unrivaled source of joy in my life is hands down this family that I call my own. My husband and I are going on thirteen years of marriage (what!) and we absolutely love getting out and about in this beautiful city with our kiddos. Our favorite places to go are the beach, Balboa Park, and the many local libraries.
Aside from my family, books and photography are my passion. I attend two different monthly book clubs with some truly insightful women and my favorite book is Maniac McGee by Jerry Spinelli. (The majority of my favorites are young adult novels!)
What I love most about being a photographer is the opportunity to serve families, especially mothers, by doing something for them that they cannot do for themselves. Sure, you could set up the tripod and use the self-timer to take a photo with you in it, but let me take the stress out of the situation by shouldering that responsibility. Let your children see that you were there, present in their lives, WITH them. The moments can slip through our fingers so quickly, but a photograph allows us to keep some moments from being lost forever.
I believe in printing photographs. I believe in telling the stories about them to our children so the legacy of our love and our lives continues on. I encourage you to bring the grandparents to your next family session, book an occasional daddy-daughter session, or take the family photos for a Christmas card like you've been meaning to for years! You will never regret having the photos, but you will regret not having them. I look forward to seeing you from the other side of the lens :)
