To keep this section short, since I really love everything about my job, I'll explain why I love photoshoots with people. I love that I have the ability to make people smile. To really capture a moment that is so important in someones life and for them to keep that moment in time forever. I love making people laugh, and I really love being able to make people feel good about themselves. I love being able to bring people together, and get people to work together. Of course, I also love the reactions of excitement when I send off the final images.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I remember specifically one family I was doing a shoot for, the kids were very shy. They did not want their photo taken and cried when I pulled out my camera. I tried to make them laugh a handful of times, and when I finally accepted that my regular tactics weren't working, I got another idea. My boyfriend and I were living in our camper van at the time and so I sent him over to get our bubble machine which I had been gifted. We turned it on and the kids loved it. All of the photos had bubbles in them, but they also had smiling kids, and a very happy family. We let them keep the bubble machine too!
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
My work has been showcased (for shock value) on City News, CNN, as well as two small prints magazines.
A fun fact about this photographer
I'm not sure if it's a fun fact, but having self-diagnosed myself with long-term memory loss, I think this is one of the many reasons why I insist on taking pictures. I find a lot of my life has been forgotten unless I can look back on my hard drive and see it. If I didn't shoot it, it's almost like it didn't happen. It's sad in a way, but also beautiful to think I have found something I love doing and that actually helps me at the same time.
