Along with formal education I use my camera daily to enhance my skills and listen to podcasts to stay up to date on industry happenings. While on the elliptical at the gym you can also find me watching YouTube tutorials on editing, posing, lighting and other photography basics. I love this trade and I believe it is important to continually learn!
I have heard over the years the majority of people I ask do no enjoy getting their picture taken or are not picture people, but they want images to pass to they children or capture everyday memories. I absolutely love seeing the joy on client faces when they receive their gallery. They may not realize something about themselves or their spirit before a session, and I love being a part of documenting their life.
My typical shoots include pet, boudoir, children, weddings/event and fitness. I enjoy connecting with my clients on a case by case basis making sure I capture their vision. I do my best to make every session special so the customer experience is exceeded with not only a great product, but great experience.
I used to teach Zumba! It was a great job encouraging people to workout while having a good time.
