I've been told that being a photographer, you don't get to live in the moment because you're focused on getting the right shot, but I disagree.
I believe when you're a photographer, you're more connected with it because you're paying attention to the details.
You're waiting for the right second to capture the beauty of that special moment...you're closely watching...you're holding your breath...and you're living it, because you know that was the moment.
My passion for photography and videography started when I was in high school taking a Computer Art Class. The power of putting together every single piece of the images shared really captivated me and I was hooked. I also began modeling for photographers around the RVA area because I enjoyed the art and had aspirations at the time to try it out. When I started to review the photos and saw how you could create beauty with both person and environment, I wanted to take a stab at it. I started off with a cheap snapshot camera and continued to progress to what I use today. It's all about being opened to learn! I prefer natural light and using minimal editing to keep images and videos as true as possible. If you enjoy my work and want to see if we're a good fit, drop me a line!
