Every couple has asked me how I got into photography, and I always tell them it all started with a deep need to create.
Although it was there, it took me years to address my need to create, and I tried many different avenues from dancing, to cooking, to music, to painting, but they never quite fit. In high school I took my first art class, which lead me to graphic design. It became a full-time job in college, and I did it for two years, but it wasn’t fulfilling. I realized the missing piece was meaningful interaction with people. I’ve always loved people. How there are so many of us with so many different stories, quirks, and things we offer the world. I just wanted to listen, to observe, and be present. I’m much less interested in myself and more interested in those around me.
I knew had to combine my love for people and my love to create.
A few years ago, I quit my job as a graphic designer, bought a camera and started shooting everything and everyone. After years of creative wandering, it was liberating to find something that finally made sense. I got to partner with people and use my creative gifting in ways that matched my personality.
Photography has been the perfect marriage of loving people and loving to create, and that is why I love what I do.
Over the last 4 years I’ve learned to listen to the stories presented to me, while partnering with others to bring them to life.
