My bread and butter is fashion photography and I do everything else as well! Because of my background, I capture moments in a unique way as far as posing, set design, composition, and lighting. I shoot for 6 midwest- based model and actor agencies and have photographed Michael Belhing from Netflix's hit show All American, Mkenzie Rooney the winner of Lifetime's Making A Model, and Top Model Achenrin Madit as well as other people you've seen on TV. I really like photography and enjoy capturing interesting shots for weddings, events, birthdays, engagements and more that my clients will keep in the family for generations. I take it seriously because I think photography is important.
What I love about my job is being able to go different places and be a part of very happy moments in the lives of others. I get to capture those moments so people can keep images to remind them of that special time and share them with their family and friends. Ultimately, photography immortalizes people and events in a way and celebrates a person. I've also had plenty of frustrating job experiences I hated, so being able to do what I actually want to do and not be tethered to a desk all day performing mind-numbing tasks makes me feel free and I really, really value the idea of freedom because I know what it's like not to be.
