I didn't launch my business with dreams of it becoming what it is today. Instead, I followed my passion and carefully explored how my passion and my purpose could be intertwined.
My journey began in yearbook class as a sophomore in high school.
I had reluctantly joined the class after a push from the computer teacher (who identified my talent for art and tech... when I was blissfully unaware).
I quickly realized I LOVED taking photos and designing for the yearbook—myself, my friends, and everything in between. I became the person who naturally recorded memories for others, and that role brought me so much joy!
In early 2020, I was still working in higher education when I started Storyweaver Studio at the encouragement of my husband, Kevin.
I was already taking photos and designing for many of my friends and colleagues, and he saw a vision bigger than I could see. Do you see a theme here? Apparently, I always need a little nudge, and then I'm off to the races!
Fast forward to 2024, I work full-time for my business, and to date, I've delivered 160+ photo galleries, photographed 30+ weddings, mentored other photographers, and delivered hundreds of projects for local design clients. Over that time, it was always my goal to build a reputation as being a business owner who not only authentically captures my clients but also deeply cares about their lives.
My Favorite Things
I have an unhealthy obsession with Aldi... which is unfortunate when your town doesn't have an Aldi.
I know pretty much all of the rap lyrics to Hamilton as well as the solos in Oklahoma. Yeah, let's just say I'm a well-rounded stage nerd.
My mom never let me have snacks at the movies... so naturally I always purchase some now! I mean, is it really a movie if you can't feel the roof of your mouth??
Moms have to stick together! I love deep conversations about the hurdles moms face as well as the personal growth they see through parenthood.
My Nespresso has been the best purchase of my coffee-obsessed life and let's just say you can easily find me in a local coffee shop.
Parks and Recreation & Emperor's New Groove
I use quotes from these shows in my everyday life.
I listen to SO MANY PODCASTS. At any given point I have 8-10 podcasts in which I loyally listen.
Now I just sing at home and at church but I really enjoyed getting to sing in theatre, small tours, and college choir in the past.
