My "Why"

In 2016 I was ready to start my journey as an entrepreneur. Knowing little to nothing about the journey, I took a leap of faith and I jumped while afraid. I had been practicing as a Registered Nurse for the past 13 years and although I was very passionate about my career; I had experienced burnout, I felt that workplace politics did not allow us to care for our patients with integrity and best care practices. I was no longer fulfilled.

I began finagling with photography in December 2015 after receiving a camera from my husband for my birthday. I taught myself how to use the camera and mastered the camera in about 3 months. You're probably wondering how did I do that in such a short amount of time? Well, I am too! I googled and googled, then you-tubed and you-tubed, I reached out to a couple of photographers in the area who inspired me with their work and I took pictures of everything in sight.

The more I assisted families and individual with creating memories, it brought a sense of self-satisfaction which compelled me to work with women who were looking to re-define and re-discover themselves whether personally, professionally or both. The goal for every shoot was to encourage them to give themselves permission to take free rein of their emotions and to indulge in their self-confidence while celebrating themselves fearlessly and unapologetically. I push authenticity. Although we are inspired by many we are our own mold and that is why the people who love, follow, and support us.

Fast forward three years later, after discovering who my ideal clients were, I realized that photography was more than just photography, it was more than just a job, it was more like a ministry. I enjoyed pouring into my clients and watch them find themselves within the lens, some at the cost of visiting feelings and places they didn't want to revisit. Some ended as a therapy sessions, I was okay with that. I was and am fulfilled.
