I'm Summer. Six years ago I was working as a mental health therapist when my Mom suddenly passed away. Losing my Mom changed my life and sparked an urgency in me to remember the passing days. I began by documenting all of the big and little moments with our little ones, which grew into an opportunity to capture the special moments in the lives of others. My camera gave be better eyes, a clearer view, to see the beauty in the everyday and the art in the ordinary.
I believe that our stories are worth recording. Our stories make us who we are. Life is so precious. Love matters most.
I live in Northeast Ohio with my partner in life and business, Chad, and our three toe-head little people.
When not shooting, there is a good chance you will find me wearing running shoes and pounding the pavement on a long run. Or in water boots, schlepping through creeks while our little people collect critters. Or in slippers, binge watching shows like Dateline, 48 Hours or Criminal Minds. (You know, uplifting stuff.)
