There are so many things I love about photography it is hard to pick one. I love being able to capture the beauty in everything. Many of my clients express that they are self-conscious or don't photograph well, but they tell me my pictures make them feel beautiful and better than they ever have. I love that I get to help them feel the confidence they deserve. Photography is a powerful tool that can capture important moments in peoples lives and document little moments that will now always be remembered.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Many of my scheduled shoots are senior casuals so to avoid repetitiveness, I always try to bring their personality in the photo. I try to work with them to find new locations and theme ideas to ensure the pictures embody who they are as a person and they do not look the same as anyone else's. During the shoot, I ask them questions and try to tell jokes to get them to loosen up in front of the camera. I always ensure they are having a good time during the shoot and that it is reflective in the photos.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
My work has been the cover of the Spring Issue of Due South.
