I love capturing moments - being able to see and feel a shot and know that you were able to capture that one split second of time and keep it, manipulate it and look at it whenever you want. I love working with people , no two shoots will ever be the same , such diversity and creativity and beauty.
Fashion - love the beauty and creativity of these shoots.
Portraits- capturing the essence of people so profound.
Music - working with artist and their brands and creating a combined image out of that.
Events-absolutely love capturing people in moments when they are not aware of it and just themselves.
landscapes- what can I say its magic when the light and the mood and the beauty take your breath away.

I always wanted to be a photographer - I forgot about that until some of my childhood friends reminded me that I used to talk about how amazing it would be , then life happened and I went to University to become a social worker decided to take the last year off and travel then come back and finish my degree .
When I got back from Africa and developed the film from my disposable low quality cameras and saw how good they were regardless of not having flash or zoom people started saying you should go into photography.
Some years passed and I tried different things then one day my boyfriends father lent me his super old camera and all the gear ( I was soooo excited to have a real camera and enrolled in a none credit film photography class ) the camera broke half way through the class and I tried to get it fixed but the guy at the repair shop exclaimed "I have not seen one of these in 20 years " he could not repair it so I left photography again.
But one day I decided to stop at Dawson and just see what they have available and good thing I did - it was the last day to pick up an application for their 2 year commercial digital program , I wrote a paper expressing why I wanted to be in that class ( they had limited room )and they excepted . The rest is history but its been a great one
