I love that photography allows me to freeze moments in time - it's such a unique and artistic way to preserve a special moment. Every day is a different challenge and it always keeps me on my toes, which I love. Never a dull moment!
I really enjoy lifestyle shoots because there's something really fun about adding an element of reality to a shoot. Sometimes portraits can feel very posed or stiff, and putting my subjects in realistic situations usually helps to relax them, resulting in better images overall.
Last year I shot a fun advertisement for ModLux Dallas magazine.
I lived in Costa Rica for 4 years when I was younger!
