What fires you up? For 3 years I shot everything I needed to shoot. I loved all of it, but over the years my senior business started to mold into my brand- it became my PASSION. It is the reason why I shoot. I absolutely love showing our young girls they are beautiful. They are so delicate and the media shows them an unattainable reality of what beautiful is. I love that the whole process makes them feel special. I love that I am providing them with confidence to rule the world. I put my heart and soul into every senior shoot.
What advice would you give new photographers? Learning your skill and craft are very important but the business side is the side that is often forgotten and put on the back burner. While it is the hardest area to grow, I have seen the benefits from dedicating time and focus to that area with each passing year. Also- save your money and don't buy many actions. While they can be time savors I found that I did not need to spend hundreds of dollars on them. Out of the hundreds that I own I have one action I use consistently. It makes me cringe to think of all the money I have spent over the years just because I thought I needed to have it to make me a better photographer.
What is a dream you'd love to make happen? For three years I have been chasing my photography dreams. This year my focus is making my daughter's dreams come true-I want to take her to Disney World by the end of the year. We have talked about it for several years and this is the year we are making it happen. I have never been and I can't wait to see her eyes light up when we tell her we are going. Most of my dreams right now consist of things for my daughter, or family.
