Photo taken by Britt Lanicek Photography

Seems like I have had a camera in my hand ever since I can remember. I documented everything from bored summer days to vacations to birthdays you name it, I recorded it. But it wasn’t until recently that I discovered the power that little camera had.

Most of my adult life has been spent searching for my purpose, that gift that makes you know why God put you on this earth. And it     wasn’t until a few years ago that something just clicked, that moment when I knew I had found it.

It was in my photography. My images. The part of me that I had loved as a child.

But now it is not about recording an event, it is about capturing the emotion, that perfect shot, which just takes your breath away. The moment you see beauty screaming from the other side of your lens. That “jump out of your skin” excitement of making visible the sparkle that we each have inside. I feel I was given this gift to create images that encourage self-confidence and make tangible the inner beauty that we all possess.

Photography is not a choice anymore, it is a vital part of who I am.

And as for me personally? Well, I have been married to the most wonderful man for the past 32 years and we have 5 awesome kids. We live in a modest southern suburb of Dayton, Ohio and thoroughly enjoy the Midwest - I couldn’t survive without the 4 seasons although the Outer Banks keep calling us during the cold Ohio winters.

Thanks for checking out my work and taking time to see what I am all about. I’d love the opportunity to get to know you and create images that just make you smile.
