I've had some classes in college for photography, and from there I am self-taught. There have been many people who have helped me on this journey and who became my mentors to help me improve and become a better photographer. I am a quick learner and take experience in one job to help with the next. After taking a class in college, I decided that this was something I wanted to do.
Each new job brings new experiences I can learn from and new people to meet. I always enjoy meeting new people and getting to know them. I love capturing those little moments that people can look back on and smile.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done many different types of shoots, and I like to get to know the people a little to know their personality and what I think they would like. For one wedding the bride mentioned to someone how she wished her mom was still alive to be there; so anytime her mom was brought up I tried to capture the moment. The sister brought a clover neckless as a gift to the bride and the bride said if she saw a clover at the wedding she would know her mom was there with her. So when the sister gave her the gift I made sure to capture that moment. Those presious moments are what I aim for so when the people look back on the photos they are reminded of those special memories.

A fun fact about this photographer
My dad owned a karate school, so I grew up learning mixed martial arts. I love doing most arts (drawing, painting, crafts, photoshop, Illustrating, animation, and so on) and love being outdoors. I'm married to a wonderful husband who supports and encourages my photography and have a beautiful baby girl who loves to keep me on my toes.
