Back when disposable cameras were all the rave and taking photos with my siblings at a young age seemed only like yesterday, I realized I had a love for photography. In 2014, I picked up the trade on a professional level. After trying a variety of styles and learning what I enjoyed shooting the most, I settled into my niche. Fashion allows me to create and boudoir photography, especially, allows me to help others through one major way, self-love, which is why I love shooting these the most.  Although, my children are my original muse and will always be my greatest works of art. 

"you are not beautiful like them,
you are beautiful like you!"

As a teen, one of my favorite things to watch was VH1. I loved seeing the artistic videos and individual creativity. There is nothing more beautiful, sexy or unique than a confident person who is not afraid of being who they are or doing something different. I try to remind everyone I photograph that CONFIDENCE IS KEY. You are not beautiful like them, you are beautiful like YOU. The beauty of art is that it's different. It's a perspective that may have never been seen before, so it captivates and pulls one in, just like those videos, just like YOU. In a world where almost everything has been done, it can be hard to be different, but the key is to keep being true to you which will create a new form of art simply by doing that. Why? because, you are art.
