I love seeing how happy a client gets when they get to see the final product. I enjoy interacting with people and getting to know them during a shoot. It's cool to learn about their story, I get to see the excitement on their face and body language. I love to capture that in my photos!
I enjoy all types of photography. But the type I enjoy the most have to be lifestyle portraits. The reason why I enjoy it is because its not staged for the most part. I get to photograph love, happiness, sadness, vulnerability, excitement. It is one of the realest types of photography besides photojournalism. I love capturing emotions.
Other than speaking English and Spanish, I am also able to communicate in sign language at a beginner / intermediate level.
