I love to evoke emotions. I try to find the scenes that seem mundane but can also be impactful. If I do a portrait I try to make is seem "normal" but in a way that the viewer of the image might fall in love with something about that person.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done shoots with the students at the school that I work at. I've done pictures for the basketball team and cheer squad. I didn't know all the students but when I was with them I really enjoyed making them laugh or feel relaxed. I think it's really special if you can catch someone in their natural state as well as feel comfortable in front of the camera.
