Welcome, welcome to Eclectic Journey Photography, your place for custom portraiture services in Montgomery & Bucks Counties.
I’ve always been one of those difficult to categorize types of people, mostly because I deplore categories! I prefer, instead, to celebrate that which makes each of us unique. The same is true of my photography. I want to capture images that are fresh, vibrant, and, well, eclectic.
Eclectic is a word I’ve heard used a lot to describe me. I think it is shorthand for woman with many passions and pursuits. This is my truth.
I’m a pediatrician/adolescent medicine specialist who gave up the publish or perish world of academic medicine for a more manageable lifestyle as a medical director. This transition, in turn, allowed my dear husband and kidlet to see me more often, as well as enabled me to start this exciting new business.
Photography has been a love for me from back in the days of Polaraids and 24 hour photo processing huts (remember those?) Yet over the years, I put my old Nikon EM film camera aside and took photos with various point and shoots. However, after The kidlet, also known as the most photogenic child on the planet (at least to her mom), entered the picture (so to speak), I knew I had to up my game. By 9 months of age, I found that her combination of angel face and speed of a possessed rabbit was too much for my most recent point and shoot. Indoors, by the time the shutter tripped, she had moved halfway across the room. The LCD display would show a blur of brown hair. There are months in her first two years where the only pictures I have of her are either her sleeping or trapped in her high chair.
I ditched the point and shoot and bought a Nikon dSLR. (Nikon and Canon are like rival families, sort of like the Capulets and the Montagues without the death and tragedy, you know…but once you get into one of the families, you never get out.) After tons of courses and oodles of practice, I opened Eclectic Journey Photography in 2010 in order to capture beautiful images of other than my magnificent daughter. I create for my clients the type of custom photography experience that they would enjoy and treasure.
What else can I tell you about my life’s eclectic journey? Other important facets of my journey include blogging, knitting, cooking, jogging very, very, very slowly (sort of like walking with a teensy bit more oomph), deep thinking, navel gazing, geriatric parenting, anti-princess crusading, cat-loving and shoe whoredom. Life is very, very good.
