I love meeting new faces and hearing the vision of others while also sharing my own. I love that I get to work creatively through photo and video. I enjoy having the privilege of telling the story of others' life experiences with my shooting and editing. I feel accomplished and satisfied once my clients do, but also enjoy learning along the way sharpening my skills.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I feel I make a personal connection with my clients of all ages and walks of life. I try and share a bit of myself that connects with each individual to offer a relatable experience for them which I believe then causes all nerves in front of the camera to go away.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I made the cover of my city's (San Leandro) local phone directory. I occasionally get official web badges from wedding blogs.
