I am very grateful that I have been published in multiple magazines now! Each one had a unique process, but the challenge was worth it. My goal is to submit twice a year! I love all the planning and collaborating that goes into each of these!

Fashion is my favorite to photograph. I love being able to do funky things and test out new ideas. Being able to collaborate with local designers and makeup artists/stylists has been so rewarding. I have worked with models from different agencies as well as a diverse group of freelancers. Doing editorial work is the best way to keep my creativity flowing. I do have wardrobe available upon request! I am always adding to my photography closet!

I am also thrilled that one of my recent photos was accepted in Vogue Italia's Photo Vogue!

This was my first time meeting Amelia and I can't wait to work with her again in the future! I'm still shocked she's only 16!
