I have been around cameras my entire life. My father would take photos of me in my diapers walking around playing with my Barbies. He has been a photographer for over forty years and we would always capture moments during my childhood. It never really bothered me because I liked being in front of the camera. It wasn't until 3 years ago when I finally became curious about what was behind the camera. It really isn't as easy as you think. I started off with using natural light, using my female friends as my models. My boyfriend, now fiancé, loved to challenge himself and really became interested in the science behind lighting techniques, whether it being artificial or natural light. After looking at numerous fashion magazines, I too, became passionate about studio work using lights, backdrops and better wardrobe styling for my subjects. I now work in collaborations with modeling agencies, stylists, designers and makeup artists in the DFW area.
I am constantly aiming to execute my skill so that I may one day be a photographer for a fashion magazine and ultimately own my own studio in NYC. A few photographers I truly admire are Annie Leibovitz, Emily Soto, Lara Jade, Nima Benati, Kat Irlin, David Dellemere, Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Demarchelier and Mario Testino.
