I love meeting new people everyday, exploring beautiful landscapes, and combing those passions to capture authentic moments in the stunning backdrop of dramatic nature scenes. I relish traveling and having fun during the photoshoot! Getting to be creative, free, and connected are some of my favorite things!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I started in landscape, and then I kept expanding into architectural, portrait, and food photography. I make them special by capturing authentic moments and incorporating natural landscapes paying attention to details like props and styling (clothing).
