my story ::MADE IN LA

an all around creative in my own right .

I found photography when I was 13 years young looking for a fun class to fill my "elective" schedule. - You can definitely say I stuck with it, however, this wasn't always my planned intent.

For as long as I could remember.. I wanted to be in fashion. When I was a little girl, I would spend hours drawing my seasonal collections of dress designs, while watching re run coverage of fashion week. I was inspired by designers like Haider Ackerman’s sleek &edgy style ... ( somethings just never change. ) As I grew into my youth I eventually set my sights on attending the best fashion school on the west coast, FIDM in Los Angeles CA .

While studying at FIDM I was constantly inspired by the creative ambiance of the fashion culture around me that it wasn’t long before I combined my love for fashion & photography. I began collaborating on photo shoot ideas with my fashionista friends , models, & some upcoming creatives online....which eventually led me to my future job as in house photographer for a private label

Life after FIDM was nothing less than a rat race. Just like any fresh college grad I was somewhere between 3 jobs working at a private label fashion house, fulfilling an internship with a celebrity costume designer & working in graphic design to pay the bills. It was then when I was recruited by a college to shoot her upcoming wedding. I was taken back & initially tried to reject the offer.

I didn't know anything about weddings... shoot I barely knew anything about LOVE.

How was I to take on such a huge responsibility with 0 wedding experience!? She eventually insisted, & didn't allow me to say no. This essentially marks the start of my journey with falling in love with wedding photography.

The day of her wedding soon approached & I fully immersed my self in the experience & in my role as a wedding photographer.While it proved to be the most difficult day I had ever worked in my life, I found myself in full enjoyment.It was safe to say I had experienced the most rewarding day of my career yet.

That day I fell in love with capturing true connection found in honest moments. I fell in love with the ability to uniquely capture & create a story through my lens for somebody else's lifetime of enjoyment. I fell in love with working with people & capturing some of their most special memories.

Since my first wedding in 2012, I realized I found my passion & the one thing I'm supposed to be doing...

not fashion, not design,not just photography…but,specifically…
