About me

I'm a freelance creative who loves all things photography, videography, design, and writing.

Hi! I'm Trish. I've been a messy creative since before I can remember. As a kid, I was always cutting snips of paper, gluing stuff together, painting, sewing, or drawing. I never had one thing that kept my attention. As an adult, I have the same creative, free spirit. I'm a traveler, a photographer, a videographer, a writer, a designer... basically whatever captures my attention on any particular day.

 

What is it that lights a fire under you? Pursue that thing.

My Story

I lived the first 30 years of my life trying to please everyone around me. Then I woke up one day and realized I had to pursue the things that set my soul on fire. I had to find the things that lit me up inside. I’m a firm believer in living life to the fullest and embracing moments that may pass and never come again. To some it may seem frivolous, but to me it’s necessary. It’s like air to my lungs. There is no such thing as normal, but there is such a thing as passion and dreaming and embracing the person God created you to be. There is a huge difference between the people who pursue these things and the people who don’t. I want to be a pursuer of my passions and in the process I want to touch people with my gifts.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover." Mark Twain

My Mission

Adoption has played a huge role in my life. I have an adopted son, adopted siblings, adopted cousins, and an adopted nephew. My calling in life is to highlight and document adoption stories. My goal is to travel at least once a year with families who are meeting their child(ren) for the first time. Those moments can never be relived and it's such a gift to give adoptive families something they'll cherish for the rest of their lives.

My Motivation

These four people are my absolute favorites on the planet. They keep me grounded. They support me and encourage me to continue chasing my dreams. They make me want to be better at everything I do. AND they are seriously the coolest kids I've ever met... no joke! I'm not just saying that because I'm their mom. Ask anyone. To Hunter, Mason, Kyla, and Jayden... CHASE YOUR DREAMS. Don't settle for mediocrity. God has big plans for each one of you.
