I'm pretty sure all of us grew up taking pictures with the film Kodak cameras or polaroid cameras. As a high school student, I always begged my parents to buy me a DSLR. My logical parents didn't buy it at the time, because they never saw me pick up a camera. 4 years later at graduation, I still found myself asking for a DSLR as a gift. My parents gave in and the rest was history.
I really started out taking pictures around house or at family gatherings. My dad called me their personal "Paparazzi". I started to bringing my camera work and offered to take pictures of school events for free. I honestly didn't want the money, I just wanted to practice. Everynight after grad school, I watched videos online and treated it like "class:".
Free photoshoots, turned into paid family sessions. My clientele continued to grow blessing me with back to back booked weekends. I became booked and busy with weddings, engagement sessions, and family portraits. I am forever thankful my parents purchased that camera in 2017. Who freaking knew.
GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE BETTER
Outside of the photography realm, I am a dedicated School Psychologist. I love traveling the world and speaking with locals about their culture. My travel bucket list is pretty steep, but I'd like to envision I conquer that list by the time I'm 40.
I'd like to consider myself a foodie that enjoys trying new restaurants and bars in the Philly or South Jersey Area. I'm enjoy day trips and any place I could bring my puppy, as he's basically my son.
