I attended Nossi College of Art for 2 years and obtained a bachelor's degree in digital photography. I have since been contracted for all types of work. I shot, edited and helped put together an entire website for a local salon with 46 employees. I designed my own website and (obviously) took and edited all the photos. I'm also the photographer/ media manager for a small business called Sunshine Solutions, LLC. I love photography, I knew from my first photo assignment many years ago that It was something I wanted to pursue seriously. I've even considered opening up my own mobile studio. Up until now I've been content freelancing, but I'd genuinely love to take it to the next level.
I love that I get to display my creativity in all different ways. I've been contracted to shoot all different kinds of work and I've never had an unsatisfied customer! I get to meet so many new people and really delve into their lives and their stories for a period fo time. There's no greater feeling then sending over finished edits and seeing and hearing people's reactions. To make someone happy while doing something I love is a full circle of happiness.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I shoot a lot of boudoir, band promos, headshots, maternity and engagement photos. I love to meet with each and every client a few days before the shoot to talk to them and get to know them and see what they really want out of the shoot. I always show a few "sneak peeks" during the shoot and they always get really giddy and excited to shoot more. In the editing phase, I like to keep them updated through text or email and let them know how amazing everything is coming along.
