As a mother of two, I know that every moment with your children is precious. Life goes by so fast. You blink and they’re toddlers. You wakeup one morning, and they’re suddenly in grade school. It seems like everyday is a realization that they’ll only be this age once, right now. Capturing and cherishing the now, is what inspired me to create Livy Bear Photography. Every mother deserves to have those moments preserved forever.
It goes without saying that my kids give my life meaning and purpose; a sense of completion that only a mother can understand. My daughter Olivia has the vibrant personality of a young adult in child’s body. She’s an “old soul,” witty and charming beyond her years. It’s her kind nature and loving heart that make me so proud to be her mom! I’m extremely blessed to have not only this little princess in my life, but also an incredibly adorable son named Santino. No matter what kind of day I’m having, one casual glance at his innocent smirk and all the cares of adult life fade away.
Who am I? Although I always put family first, I’m a workaholic, a perfectionist when it comes to photography, an energetic coffee loving Disney fanatic with a positive outlook on life! In those rare moments of free time, between photoshoots, editing, and parenting, I’m either at the gym or spending time with a close knit circle of lifelong friends. Paramount among those friends, is my dear mother who has made me the woman I am today. Last but not least, there is my other half; the man who believes in me, encourages my dreams, who I could never imagine a day without: my loving husband Brian.
