It is my passion to create and share with others and photography allows me to do just that. I enjoy the experience of capturing a moment and watching as the photographs come alive. Every photo is a unique opportunity to create and share a story with the world. I also love the connections I am able to make with people and translating those connections into the photos I take.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done photographs for many graduating seniors. When working with seniors I love collaborating with them to find out what makes them unique and figuring out how to translate that in the final images. Photoshoots are also a great time to get to know a little about the person you are shooting. This makes the photoshoot much more enjoyable and it is a great way to make everyone feel more comfortable in front of the camera.
