Photography is something I've loved for nearly my entire life. When I was very young I began photographing sunsets from my backyard and told everyone I was going to be a photographer when I grew up. I believe I inherited the artistic eye from my mom and the technical aptitude from my dad, and I approach photography with a consideration of both aspects.
I'm intrigued by history, and looking at old photos allows me to feel a connection to people and places from the past. I enjoy being the one to help preserve a person's legacy, and I am fulfilled by creating art that I know will be loved and appreciated.
I am formally educated in fine arts, photography, design, and marketing/communications, and my first college photography course involved processing and developing my own film in the darkroom. I never stop pushing my creative boundaries and I love learning all that I can about photography. My journey as a photographer began by first working as a studio assistant, and then a year later in 2011 I decided to turn what I loved into my own business.
