My name is Abigail. And this is the longest word section on my website. Because I think it’s important for you to know me if I’m the one who is going to be capturing the honesty of who you are.
I love chasing light + telling stories. And I think human beings are pretty amazing.
Which kind of makes me a total walking contradiction because I am such an introvert. People always tend to intrigue + terrify me all at once. Ha! What always pulls at me the most is their stories. If you look close enough, you can see their stories in their eyes, their posture, their expressions, their interactions with others. My curiosity in all these unique stories awakened my passion for telling those stories. I've had a camera in my hand since middle school, when I took a 4-H photography course with a borrowed "vintage" Kodak film camera. I was hooked + I've never looked back. I'm a Jesus follower - my own faith journey hugely impacts my creative process, my business model + how I interact with my clients. Allll the musics on vinyl are so very much my jam - especially the old ones that pop + crackle. I love to travel to all the far away places... but I love coming home even more. I have a tribe of people that I run literally everything by. They're the best peanut gallery of all time.
Hermione Granger, Jessica Day + their real life counterparts Emma Watson + Zooey Deschanel are most definitely my spirit animals. I am a complete nerd + total child when it comes to all things Harry Potter. I call dibs on the making of 3 of my very own amazing humans. Layla Grayce is my fierce kindness warrior; she made me a Momma first. She dares me by example to always be true to myself. Mattie Lark is my wild soul, my little perfect storm. She is headstrong + a force to be reckoned with. Her priceless existence teaches me patience, while reminding me to stand firm when it comes to saying the best yes. Jude Archer is my laid-back mancub, my little king of all the wild things. He is my own personal reminder that God hears the "smallest" secret longings. I am awkward a lot of the time + sometimes I ramble when I get nervous. I'll probably remind you about that awkwardness within the first 10 minutes of our time together so we can laugh about it. It breaks the ice.
NOW… what do I expect out of your session?
I expect you to be present. To touch tenderly. Let’s make tea. Embrace words. Jump on the bed. Wander and seek. Create. Dance in the light beams pouring thru the window.
A person's living, moving, being is made up of a series of moments. Moments that make you catch your breath. Moments that make you breathe. Moments that set your roots firm + deep. Moments that make your soul cliff dive + soar. Those moments, every single one, are the sum of you. The sum of me. They are the nectar + sustenance of life. They are the light + living them well is what makes us free. So let’s go catch your moments.
