dog-mom. movie buff. foodie. filmmaker.
Can we both just agree that writing out facts about yourself is difficult? Okay then, moving on.
I love to laugh and I like making other people laugh. I'm not a class-clown, but more like an awkward third wheel - in a good way.
Why do I do what I do? There's something about being able to see joy, hear a person's voice, and watch a moment unfold that makes video so precious and worth having around for years to watch. I myself loved sitting down and watching old home videos over and over - absorbing memories brought to life that you never got to experience or have forgotten over time.
where does "Brindle" come from?
I've always been an animal lover, but Juno is my "heart-dog". She's an 85lb brindle pitbull that has been by my side through a divorce, moving out of state, meeting the love of my life, losing loved ones, and battling multiple medical issues. My Junebug/Monkey Butt/Chunky Butt has ultimately made me more compassionate but also more patient. She has an attitude and a stubbornness that my husband lovingly says "she gets from her momma" but she also has unconditional love and unwavering loyalty to me that I'll never be able to thank her for.
To some, my obsession with her is a little over the top - but if you have a heart-dog then you get it and you're my kind of people.
my love story.
I've been married to my best friend (literally - we were best friends before we started dating) for almost 7 years. When we got married, we eloped in downtown Nashville on St. Patrick's Day (yes, I wore green) with a handfasting ceremony. It all happened pretty quickly so we didn't have a videographer. Instead, I handed my mom my camera and told her to record what she could and I tried to make the best out of it when I edited it all later. Its not this beautiful professional wedding film, but its ours and I love it, so I know how important it is to have your day documented in all the right ways.
photographer turned videographer.
In college, I was a professional photographer. I photographed newborns, families, couples, and weddings. I was actually in a local photography group with my mom when I was a teenager. It was a fun creative outlet that I could do with my mom but I never really loved it.
Fast forward a few years, my cousin was getting married and I wanted to do something special for them as a wedding gift. They already had a photographer, so I decided I would turn my camera on movie mode and film it for them. I had no idea what I was doing, but I quickly found that I was passionate for catching those small details and important moments in video format. Seeing it happen and hearing it happen gave me more of an adrenaline rush than just pretty pictures.
