Life is filled with such short and unique moments. I love capturing emotion-filled photography that turns these moments into memories. I look for authentic and candid moments in beautiful locations. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to be a fly on the wall and to have heard so many wonderful stories.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done family, event, weddings, engagements and more. The way that I strive to make these events special is by working closely with the people I am photographing to hear their stories and share in their happy memories. I love sharing in other people's joy.
I make shoots special by taking the time to listen to people and what they need. I am very attentive and will go out of my way to make sure that the clients will adore the pictures.
