I’m Jamie, the founder & main photographer for Airavata Studios. I have a few loves in my life and I’d love to share them with you. My love for photography holds a huge part of my heart. Black & white photos, film photography and natural light are a few of my favorites. Whether it’s capturing the bride and groom’s first dance, an MMA fight, or the sun setting behind bare oak trees, there is emotion behind each image. Photography is powerful. It makes us feel, it helps us remember, and gives us the ability to freeze a moment in time.
Another love of mine, is a love I hold strong; a love for family. I don’t know how i’d survive without them! Just recently I have built my own little family. My husband and I were highschool sweethearts and married in June 2014. Now we have the most beautiful baby boy that joined us this past December. Being a new mom, I never knew how much I could love a person until I held my son. Who would have thought that such a tiny being could bring so much joy & happiness to so many people!
My last big love, is my love for love. Now I’m not some hopeless romantic, but there’s just something about seeing two people who truly care for each other; a father holding his daughter, an old couple holding hands, a child squeezing their favorite stuffed animal, a father and daughter having their first dance at her wedding, there’s just something about that kind of love that makes my heart swell.
I am fortunate to do what I love, being able to capture intimate moments. I am able to freeze moments of first dances, those little finger and toes of your newborn, winning your boxing match, getting into that beautiful wedding gown on your special day. Most of all I am able to capture the emotion behind each shot, so when you’re looking back at these photos months and even years later, you’ll be able to feel how you felt in that very moment.
