At the age of eleven I received my first camera, and I was instantly fascinated with one's reaction when they see a beautiful picture of themselves. It's a gift to show someone a beautiful and glamorous image, capturing them in a way they have never seen themselves, but have always wanted to. That is what I find most rewarding in photography; every day behind the camera is an opportunity show someone how truly beautiful they are. My degree in photography has opened many doors, led me down interesting paths and given me many different career opportunities. I have been a stylist for many years and was lucky to model throughout my twenties. Having been on both sides of the camera, I present a unique perspective. Through it all I can honestly say that photography has continued to be my constant and true passion, my artistic outlet. Simply put, I love what I do.
" What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce." - Karl Lagerfeld
