Can you share a bit about your journey into photography? What initially sparked your interest, and how has your style evolved over the years?

My journey into photography began over 15 years ago, sparked by the joy of capturing moments that could be cherished for generations. The ability to preserve memories and tell stories through images drew me in. Over the years, my style has evolved to focus on authentic and emotive storytelling through my photography.

Many photographers have a signature style or preferred subjects. What themes or subjects do you find yourself drawn to the most, and why?

I am particularly drawn to portraits and events. These themes allow me to capture genuine emotions and interactions, creating compelling visual narratives. I focus on capturing candid moments and the essence of the people and events I photograph. This approach has allowed my style to evolve into one that emphasizes storytelling and emotional depth.

Photography often comes with its challenges. Could you describe a particularly challenging project or moment in your career? How did you overcome it?

One of the most challenging moments in my career was managing my business while balancing family responsibilities and pursuing further education. Going back to school to complete my business degree required careful time management, setting realistic goals, and seeking support from loved ones. Overcoming these challenges helped me grow both personally and professionally.

Your work has been celebrated for its unique perspective. What messages or emotions do you aim to convey through your photography, and how do you hope it resonate with viewers?

Through my photography, I aim to convey the beauty and significance of fleeting moments. I strive to evoke emotions and tell stories that resonate deeply with viewers, inspiring them to appreciate the present and cherish captured memories. My goal is for viewers to feel connected to the emotions and narratives within each photograph, allowing them to relive those moments and find deeper meaning in them.

For aspiring photographers, what advice would you give on developing their own style and navigating the industry? Also, what future projects or aspirations are you currently exploring?

For aspiring photographers, I would advise developing your own style by exploring various themes and techniques until you find what truly resonates with you. Networking and continuous learning are key to navigating the industry. In the future, I aspire to expand my business to work on a larger scale with government, state, and nonprofit contracts, hire contractors to photograph events and grow my team to manage multiple projects simultaneously.
