HOW IT BEGAN
I grew up watching my father taking photos of nature and people with an old film camera. He would come home with a bundle of photographs and huge smile on his face ready to share with me and my siblings. I used to be so excited to hold the pictures in my hands and browse through them. At my parents house, we had big plastic containers filled with pictures my father had taken over the past 40 years! One of my favorite childhood memories is sitting on the floor and going through them with my 3 siblings. We would just laugh and share stories as we remembered some of those moments he photographed.
It wasn't until the end of high school when I was given my first camera as a gift from a family friend. I knew it was a gift from God, because ever since I received the camera, I never wanted to let it go! And it became my passion. I fell in love with photography.
I love building relationships with others, and I am always so delighted when asked to photograph a special event for someone. Capturing their own life stories through my photographs is valuable to me!
