My love for Photography began a long time ago.
Growing up I only had photos to show me who my father was, since he had passed a month before I was born. Even though he was not physically there the photographs allowed me to feel as if he was, that is how he lived in my heart.
Getting to know him through just a few photographs made me realize the true power a photo could hold. This is when I realized this was my dream, I am able to help others capture the most precious times in their lives.
My work is more than clicking a button, it involves countless hours finding just the right prop; hours of editing to make every little detail stand the test of time.
I couldn’t have this career without you!
Thank you for your interest and allowing me to share my dream with you.
This to me is an honor to be a part of so many different traditions.
Without photographs, memories seem to fade...
