My photography journey started during the height of the pandemic. With the stay-at-home order, indefinitely, in place - I decided to pursue something I had always been passionate about - photography. After many YouTube videos, and scrolling through dozens of subreddits and FB groups - I taught myself the foundation of photography and learned the basic features of my camera. I explored by taking photos of various subjects; taking some of nature, food, merchandise, even my pup Enzo. Though I learned a ton about my camera and compositions, things just didn't hit the way I wanted them to - do you know what I mean?

It wasn't until I convinced my sister into letting me take photos of her that I finally felt truly fulfilled. There's something astonishing that happens when I photograph individuals. There's an energy that's exchanged that's unique to that moment. There's a sense of enthusiasm and excitement mixed in with nervousness that helps capture the beauty in my photos.

my letter to you.

i want nothing more than for you to think fondly about our time together.

Truthfully, there are many things in life that are uncontrollable. What we can control is how we feel during our shoot. I want our experience to be heartwarming, I want you to know that I genuinely care about you and want us to learn more about one another; you're more than a client to me, you're a future friend! I mean, that's the only way we'll both find fulfillment in this ~ a friend helping a friend. It's a scary, dark world we live in but I hope to bring some light to your life & you to mine!

If i had to describe my style it would be

Natural w/ accentuated rich dark tones

I strive to keep the imagery as true to color as possible but I'm a sucker for deepening the darker tones; seeing the contrast between all the colors is beautiful to me.
