I became very interested in photography at a young age. Being so young, I never thought of myself as a photographer or that I would even come this far. I remember getting my first camera on my 13th birthday and from there I was hooked! It was just a small digital camera, but at the time it was the best thing ever and from that moment on I began asking for photography related gifts for every Christmas and birthday. Two years later, for my 15th birthday, I got my first DLSR camera, it was a Canon Rebel xs…I was in love! Immediately I started organizing mini photo shoots with my friends and family. I was able to grow from those first experiences and I continue to grow today. I’m proud of how far I have come with my work; knowing that it’s not just an interest, it’s my life and it makes me who I am.
