Photography: My First Love
I really love what I do! Photography has the power of capturing a moment that lasts a lifetime. It makes an impact, leaves a footmark, brings back memories, and makes a difference. I love people watching! There are so many fascinating things about people and their facial expressions. There's never a dull moment. Capturing those expressions, whether with a device or with my own eye, is my pleasure. With my unique vision, most people don't see what I see, and I love providing a mirror for my subject to look through.
I am team natural; I believe that there's no need to drastically alter things; you are beautiful the way you are. I like boldness, contrast, and color, up close and personal framing composition. I like portraits looking into people's eyes; the view to the soul. I do my best to capture the essence of the person. With the power of a voice that I've developed through the use of a camera over the years, I strive to showcase the natural inner beauty, character, integrity, and personality in all that I am whether that is as a photographer, writer, videographer, or social media marketer.
At the tender age of five, my mother first introduced me to a Kodak Polaroid. My father was an 18-wheeler driver therefore I was able to visit a vast majority of the 50 states at a young age. By the time I was gifted with a digital camera as a young teen, is when I captured my first country, Costa Rica. It was then that I knew I wanted an even more professional camera to document my first time visiting the Motherland (Africa) two years later, after growing up reading National Geographic magazine. Below are galleries from countries I have been to since then!
I love helping people. I believe that no one succeeds on their own. Having the right support team is essential. This is why I love to participate in Help-Portrait every year.
In addition, I have launched a free photography email course!
