I love meeting people and capturing their true essence. I love to hear stories about my subjects- who they are and where they come from. I love connecting. I also am grateful that I can be creative on a daily basis, something that I was not able to do in past job positions. I enjoy envisioning my ideas and making them come to life.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many shoots from political events, dog photography, and birthday parties, to concerts, portraits, and modeling. I recently did a shoot with an amazing model. I bought backdrops and props like antique radios and movie projectors, which really gave the photos a unique feel.
A fun fact about this photographer
I love to hike with my sister. This has taken us to many amazing national parks around the world, including several in Patagonia. We hiked in the dead of winter, which looking back was not the smartest idea. Thank goodness for our local hiking guide that showed us the way and broke the ice for us to walk safely every step of the way.
