I love creating emotion through my photographs! Being able to make people feel the way I'm feeling is something I strive to do in every photograph. I love telling stories as well and am happiest when I get to meet and work with new people. My documentary photographs are honest, artistic and unique. I love delivering happy moments and memories to cherish for a lifetime to my clients.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many types of shoots in the past and my number one priority is always to make my subject feel comfortable. As soon as I'm able to learn their trust and get them to drop their guard, thats when the truly unique and beautiful photographs are captured! I try to create an atmosphere that is relaxed and fun! I want you to feel like you can be yourself with me.
