How long have you been a photographer/what got you into photography?
It all started with my mom. She always had a camera in her purse and she was always snapping moments. She was really into scrapbooking, and would always be working on it in her free time. I always loved that she loved to capture moments and it inspired me. I think I got my first camera when I was in 4th grade. It was just a cheap little mini digital camera but I carried it everywhere and I took so many photos on that thing and then also started scrapbooking. I love looking back at them though, even though most are so bad and hilarious. I’ve always loved taking photos of friends and family, but I never considered that it could be my career until sophomore year of college. I decided to switch my major to photography and bought my first nice digital camera! I practiced and practiced, second shot a few weddings to become comfortable and more confident with them and then started booking portraits and weddings. I’ve been shooting now for about 4 years professionally! (There is definitely more to this story but this is the short version!)
