I love capturing people. Plain and simple. I love capturing their resting faces, their smiling faces, their faces after they say "I do," their faces smiling with joy on the dance floor, their faces calm and at ease.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done lots of food photography and I think i bring a bold flair to my work, showcasing food bright and tempting. I've also shot lots of weddings and events and I feel good at putting people at ease, at becoming a part of a celebration so that my presence feels natural and undisturbing.
