I enjoy capturing raw emotions, fleeting expressions, and the essence of a person in a single frame. As a passionate advocate of this craft, I've listed a few reasons why portrait photography holds a special place in my heart.

My Mom. 

My mother was the keeper of our family photos. She owned albums filled with pictures of generations of family members.

Whenever anyone would visit her, they would always want to sit and look at the "albums." Somewhat reluctant, my mom would always let them. They were a prize possession, and she would stealthily hover over them to ensure that none of her pictures grew legs. :)

Embracing Individuality.

Portrait photography allows me to explore the unique narrative of every person I photograph. It celebrates the diversity of human experiences, capturing the quirks, scars, and smiles that make us who we are. It's telling each person's story with a variety of images.

Preserving Moments.

Portraits freeze moments in our lives and transforms them into memories worth protecting. It's beautiful to capture laughter shared between friends or the wrinkled hands of an elderly person. The ability to preserve not just faces, but the emotions and stories behind them, moves me.

Expressing Creativity.

Portrait photography allows for boundless creativity. I like experimenting with different lighting techniques, colors and compositions. Every photo session is an opportunity for me to explore and express my artistic vision. 

Building Connections.

I love the connections and rapport I'm able to build with my clients during their sessions. When they're comfortable with me and know they can trust me, they have no problem revealing their true selves. Compassion and understanding are key foundations in establishing trust and genuine relationships.

Empowering Others.

I enjoy showing individuals how beautiful they are and helping to instill confidence and self-love. My focus is to reveal the inner strength and resilience that often go unnoticed. 

Quick moments and short recollections tend to dominate our world. That's why portrait photography allows me to capture the celebration of life. Photography may be my profession. However, it's a passion that teaches me to appreciate the beauty in every individual and every moment. 

For this, I owe my mother everything.
