I embarked on my photography journey a decade ago, driven by a dream and leveraging the contacts I had in the fashion industry. I took a leap of faith, not knowing where it would lead, but I was fully committed to the adventure. This journey has taken me across the globe, but it hasn't been without its share of sacrifices and challenges. The past few years have been marked by significant personal and professional growth, as well as numerous exciting opportunities.
I've had the privilege of serving clients in the wedding, event, and commercial photography industries, but I found myself stretched thin, handling everything on my own. In 2019, my brother and sister-in-law joined me on this exhilarating journey, recognizing my need for support. With their backgrounds in business and marketing, they seamlessly blended into the team, completing the puzzle I'd been missing.
I oversee the creative and project execution, while they manage the business side of things. Some say that going into business with family can be tricky, but I will forever be thankful for their contributions and support in helping me realize my dreams.
In 2023, our business embarked on an exciting new endeavor. I was selected to participate in the prestigious Laguna Beach Fine Arts Festival, where I presented my series, "Women: It’s A Nude, Nude Summer”. I am pleased to announce that I have been invited to return for the 2024 exhibition, and I am eagerly anticipating the opportunity to showcase my upcoming series.
My vision as a photographer revolves around capturing the world and the unique stories it holds. This profession grants me a remarkable window into the lives of diverse individuals, leaving me perpetually awestruck by how it has transformed my own life and broadened my perspective. "Grateful" hardly seems sufficient to convey the depth of positive emotions I feel about turning my passion into a career and the countless memories and moments it has provided.
My photographic style is a fusion of documentary and editorial, centered on natural, authentic, and intimate moments. I'm drawn to clean lines, symmetry (and purposeful asymmetry), architectural elements, the juxtaposition of the grand and the minuscule, the vastness of the ocean, shades of green and blue, perfectly candid moments, suspended emotions, and a touch of mystery.
As the observer, I hold in high regard the promise to capture something unique and unexpected, something that might otherwise have gone unnoticed or unseen. I genuinely, deeply love what I do – creating and preserving everlasting memories. I view each project as a collaborative effort of the soul; what unique creation can we craft together?
