Where are you from?
Born in California but did my growing up in Las Vegas, NV
Before being a photographer, tell us what you wanted to be?
I have always had a creative mind and used photography as my outlet, however, I went to college with the intentions of making a lot of money so I got into sales. I worked in the MedSpa industry for 15 years as a consultant/manager.
Tell me about the moment you decided to become a photographer?
What was the best advise you received when you started your photographer carrier?
Don’t do it for the money because you will spend more of your own money and time investing in the business, however, if you still love it even when you are down to your last cent, you know you were meant to do this.
Can you define photography?
Freeing. Free to use your imagination. Free to make your own rules. Free to be your true self through your art.
For you, what makes a good photographer?
I listen. The problem with most people in this world is we dont listen to what someone is really saying. If a client tells you “I dont like how my nose looks from the side” or “I would love to have some photos of our dog in it” and you dont listen to anything they say…chances are, you failed as a photographer. Even if you got the most stunning shots, you didn’t listen to what was important to the client.
For you, what makes a good photograph?
What is your biggest challenge today?
Keeping up with the changes in the photography business day to day. Instagram, pintrest, keeping up with my website, emails, transactions, and just the day to day editing while trying to be a wife and a mother.
Tell us about the day you felt most proud about your work?
When I started getting featured. I know it may sound ridiculous but when you see your work up against other amazing photographers, it’s a very gratifying feeling.
Tell us about the relationship you have with other photographers? How important you feel that is.
EXTREMELY! 2 of my best friends are photographers and I talked to them at least 3-4 times a day. We will even facetime and edit together which can be great company. It’s amazing to have a community like the Photography community. I dont think there is one like it.
Can you tell us an advise - photography or business tip - that somehow made your career evolve at any point?
All in all, I would like to thank the community for your incredible dedication and help that you give to all professionals. I am so glad I can call myself a rocker from now on…!
