Way back in the day, probably was about 11 or 12 year old girl, I had a little point and shoot camera (didn't every pre-teen girl have that? haha). I loved taking photos of flowers, birds, our animals, and a variety of other things out in nature.
Fast forward to university days, and I purchased my very first DSLR camera - a super fancy (or so I thought) Nikon D3200. I had considered in the back of my mind that it might be fun to photograph people, but I was so shy that I never did further entertain the idea.
......that was, until one of my roommates' boyfriends asked me to photograph him proposing to her!! I had never really photographed people, but I said sure, since I knew them and was comfortable with them. Well after that, they asked me to photograph their engagement session. They asked how much I charge, and I said, "I don't know. Whatever you think." So after I sent them their images, they paid me $100 or something....
....and the rest is HISTORY!!
That day I fell in love with photographing couples. And despite my quiet nature, literally my favorite thing about this job for me is meeting new people. I LOVE people, and photographing couples in love just adds to that!
I'd love to meet you too ;)
I'm super stoked you felt a connection with me! I can't wait to chat with you!
