At 20 years old I picked up a camera and worked my butt off to learn how to use it. I am a self-made photographer + I love what I do with my whole heart and soul. When I was a senior in high school I lost two of my closest friends 3 months apart from each other. Now, any photo I have with those sweet friends are so sentimental to me. One of the reasons I am so passionate about what I do is because the investment on photos have a priceless return. Some day, they will be all that remains. Deep, I know.
