Yep, that was me.
I’ve had a camera in hand ever since I can remember. One day, a college friend asked me to photograph her brother’s wedding. I said, I’m not a professional photographer, but I can. I posted these on social media, and the next thing I knew, two other people reached out asking me to photograph their weddings. And my journey with professional photography began.
I was a wedding photographer for six years, which eventually led to family photography.
What’s funny is every new opportunity consisted of people reaching out to request something I hadn’t done before (like newborn or senior portraits), me saying I don’t do that, but I could, and before I knew it, it was time to go full-time and ditch my corporate career.
Brand photographer & your new creative partner. You know those people who, as far as you can look back, always had a camera in hand to capture every memory.
The same thing happened with brand photography. People contacted me asking about headshots, and I’d say I don’t do headshots. And then I thought, but wait maybe I can – I don’t do headshots with a backdrop – but I do lifestyle headshots.
By 2022, I decided to niche down into branding as it fuels my soul and also aligns with my priorities in this phase of my life. My background is in business management, and I’m able to mix that experience with the creative side of photography.
I have been in your shoes. I, too, was afraid to fail, afraid to show up. Once I did, I saw my business transform – without me doing anything different than showing myself to my audience. And I want to help you achieve the same. I want you to find your confidence – and how I do that is through photography.
