Q: WHAT IS YOUR SPECIALTY AND WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO SPECIALIZE IN THAT AREA OF PHOTOGRAPHY?

I would say my specialty is capturing true personalities and beauty of women. Whether it be a maternity, a glamour portrait, a boudoir photoshoot or a happily in-love bride… I strive to tell a story, capture real emotion and the beauty within. I believe that all women are beautiful no matter how young or old, small or big, short or tall they may be. Each and every one of us is unique, and that true beauty comes from within, its our talents, our hearts, our love, our kindness and everything we do that contributes to our beauty.

Growing up I had always been on the chubbier side and I definitely had issues with my body. I went through a bad patch in my early twenties, I was vulnerable in my own fight for self-love and had to struggle a lot. It took me years, and I mean yeeeears to accept myself, my body, and to realize that I didn’t need the “size 0″ kind of body to look and feel amazing. There is no identity in my weight ‘Problem’ anymore just my acceptance of who I am and how I live. When I came to realize all that, I decided to help other women to find their own true beauty through my camera.
