I’ve been known to be the girl who carries her camera everywhere. When I see the opportunity to capture a great picture— whether it’s the lighting or the beauty that comes from candid shots, I’ll take it. From my work, you’ll see an emerging pattern throughout all the pieces. Lighting, and playing with depth perception is what creates my photographs. A successful role in taking a great photograph to me is knowing exactly how to edit work as if there were no editing to begin with. I love the idea of having a photograph look as if they were raw and untouched. Although I do edit these photos, I firmly believe in staying true to all of them. I hope when people see my work; they see the image as if they themselves were looking through the camera lens.
