There are three things I love most about photography. One, I love meeting and interacting with new people. I believe the best photos come from real, natural, organic moments, which only happen when everyone is comfortable. I love creating a comfortable environment so that my subject can shine as their own creative, authentic self. Two, I love the story of a photograph, the best photos I've seen and taken have always been the ones that feel most alive, and to be responsible for capturing that exact moment is what it's all about. And lastly, I really enjoy the moment right after I am completely finished with a photo. There is a lot of time and energy that go into each and every shoot. Shooting, going through and finding the best of the best, then touching up those I think are best by highlighting and emphasizing the natural beauty that is already there within the photo can be a large process. But then that moment when it is finished and beautiful is one of the most fulfilling moments I experience.
I have done many different types of shoots with different people and in different environments, but my main goal is to harness the differences and uniqueness of each shoot and be able to use that in the photos. I want all my photos to feel personal and I want the subject to feel like they are authentic and true to who they are and true to the experience we did to get the shot.
No awards at moment, but when I hear from my clients that it was the best photography experience they've ever had means more to me than any award could.
A fun random fact about me, I can jump through my arms. Not quite sure how that would work? Ask me about it when we shoot and I can demonstrate.
