I became interested in photography while I was in college. I simply enjoyed documented my day with my little cousin which was when I also became interested in photographing little ones. Now I own a newborn photography business where I have the opportunity to meet and photograph babies on a regular basis. When I'm not working, I'm off enjoying the trails, parks, and local attractions with my own family.
I find myself becoming more and more interested in commercial lifestyle over time. Other than that I'm typically all for anything involving my kids or my newborns so I was really excited when Creatively Squared reached out to me to join their team to help with projects like Huggies.
I actually found the Bundaberg project to be the most enjoyable. It was different and I enjoyed the challenge. I love working outdoors in community gardens, trails and by the lake the most so I made the most of these locations.
A one woman team with my Canon 6D (for now), 35mm and 135mm lenses, & Photoshop. I plan some of my shoots but anything involving the kids requires a lot "winging it". I watch music videos and look through magazines for inspiration. This year I plan to work more on storytelling.
I regularly come together with a group of WOC mom photographers to bring light to the under representation of our demographic in our community/industry. Being both blessed and laden with the color of my skin I am thankful for it. I’m thankful for the heritage that I have and the culture I can teach my kids.
As part of the #wocmomtog loop I participate in on Instagram, I recently recreate a few memorable moments from Honey I Shrunk the Kids which was one of my favorite movies growing up. Here's two images I created from a 3 part series (stay tuned for the last image to come!)
