People have wanted to record, duplicate and archive what we are and what we see, from the beginning of time. To tell a story, to document an event, to remember a time, place, person or moment. I love that I can do that for others. While not every moment I photograph is joyful, every single image becomes something to be treasured and even invaluable at some point. That makes me very happy.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I pour my heart and soul into shooting, I feel like I walk away with a relationship with the people I shoot. Depositing something in them Boudoir and beauty, women come in completely stress and not sure if they can do it and leave feeling empowered and beautiful. Families often come in stress for "Family Picture Day", and leave feeling like they had a great family date night. They connect. Same thing with corporate branding, for the company its team building and goal casting.

A fun fact about this photographer
As a child, I thought I would become a wildlife photographer for National Geographic... Little did I know that as an adult I would be working with much more dangerous animals as a portrait photographer, I was once bit in the buttocks by a four year old little girl.
