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've done many different types of shoots, but some of the best moments have been from engagement shoots! It's such a special and unique time for a couple, and I love working off of their energy. I try and give general directions, but I prefer to be a fly on the wall. This way the couple forgets that I'm there and they allow their personalities to come through. My goal is always to capture them as they are.
Last year I shot a fun advertisement for ModLux Dallas magazine.
I lived in Costa Rica for 4 years when I was younger!
