I love that my job is a creative outlet for capturing and sharing a moment in time. I have the opportunity to bring people’s ideas and products to life through my work and enable them to share their story with the world. It brings me joy and satisfaction to see their reactions to the work we create together.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have shot food and product, as well as events and travel. No matter the type of shoot, the most important part is making sure the client is comfortable and that I am accurately executing their vision. I bring compassion, organization and reliability to all shoots, and make each job is special by creating an environment of playfulness with a strong work ethic. For event photography, I strive to make everyone feel comfortable and try to make myself a fly on the wall as to not intrude on the event. This helps me capture the most authentic, candid moments.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I've had a photo featured in the Alaska Airlines In-Flight Magazine, as well as the Washington Post.
