How did you get started with photography

I got started with photography by watching and helping my mom in her own photo developing studio at home. I then went to school for graphic design and learned the technical aspects of the trade in various photography classes. Later on, I developed it, even more, when I started my own lifestyle blog where I get to work with brands creating content accompanied by professional photos.

What do you love about your job?

I love creating! The process from beginning to end requires creative play, I get to make art pieces (my photos!) by combining a special prop, a background or place with certain angles or many other elements. It’s fun!

What are some of your favorite places in San Diego to take photographs?

The beach is always a great place, there are many of them around San Diego, so it makes it for a big open canvas. About 2 hours before the sunset is my most favorite time too. When it’s not the beach, I love finding new areas, new spaces or interiors that are modern and have a great sense of style to them.
