I have always had an interest in photography. When I was younger, I was always the person at family gatherings that would be holding the camera the entire time. Little did I know that photography would become not only my passion, but my career. I started getting more into photography when I turned 16 years old. My dad bought me my first camera and I started to take photos of my friends for fun. After people started reaching out to me for photoshoots, I decided to start practicing portrait photography more and more. About 2 years after that, I started my business!
The more I got into portrait photography, the more passionate I became. I started to dive into my favorite kind of portrait photography- editorial fashion photography. It allowed for me to really use photos as a creative storytelling outlet. When I was younger, I used to love to look at my mom's magazines and obsess over the incredible photoshoots that were shown in the pages. After shooting for Kansas City Fashion Week in 2018 and seeing the magic of fashion first hand, I realized that doing fashion editorial photography was my absolute favorite. Don't get me wrong- I LOVE my senior and couples sessions. But getting to use the art of fashion mixed with editorial styling and posing is right up my alley.
When people say that photography captures moments in time, they aren’t wrong. But photography should capture more than just moments in time. Your photos should capture emotions and tell stories. That is something that I always strive to do at every single photoshoot. At my senior photoshoots, we tell the story of your growth. At my couples photoshoots, we tell the story of your love. At my editorial shoots, we tell more in depth stories. Your photoshoot deserves a story. So let’s make some magic and tell your story.
