Photography has always been a part of my life in one form or another. Be it the disposable cameras I took along while backpacking in Europe, my first digital camera I mostly used to photograph my baby brothers and sister, the photography classes I took in college and learned to develop film, or the first professional camera I used to learn the art of photography. Photography is an integral part of who I am and how I express myself. My greatest possessions are any and all photographs from my childhood, of my ancestors, family and friends, of my life.
“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.” — Rumi
The desire that has been in my heart ever since I can remember became clear to me the moment I finished my first newborn photography session I did for a friend. The joy I experienced photographing the sweet baby girl was only topped by the joy I experienced seeing the faces of the parents when they saw the images. I had given them a gift of capturing this precious moment in their lives and preserved it for them to treasure forever.
So, after graduating from college and years of working in the medical field and the Biopharmaceutical industry I finally admitted to myself that I had found the work that I was made for.
Now I LOVE what I do!
