I started my own business as a photographer five years ago while I was finishing college in Rochester, as I found a lot of friends in my personal extended network getting engaged. For me, photography was something I knew I always wanted to do for work since it was already a passion throughout my life. It was just a matter of getting started when I did, which launched my success at an early age. Since I have always felt talented creatively, I have been working to expand my business in the past year to offer my fine art photographs on canvas for sale, as well as begin designing more as a graphic artist as well as interior decorating consulting & services. My favorite part of my job is the flexibility to work when & where I like, and traveling the country to photograph people in love. The flexibility was key for me, as I have also been raising my five year old as a single parent simultaneously since I started my self-employment. I love being a photographer because I love seeing & creating. Finding beauty or uniqueness in something and translating that from my personal point of view is so fulfilling as a creative.
