My passion for photography evolved out of losing my mother at the young age of 14. After her passing, I quickly realized that we practically had no photographs together. My mother was a single mom who worked extremely hard to provide for me. The Christmas before she passed was a rough one for us. I wanted a camera more than anything, but because of our struggle financially that was out of the question. Soon after my mom had passed I received a check in the mail for almost the exact amount for the camera I wanted. It amazes me how the Universe works. And so, my journey as a photographer began.
Passion for Snapping
My passion for holding the camera would not only allow me to venture into new worlds, but to actually create another dimension for myself. It is through photography where I learned a new way of expression. I began taking classes in high school for photography, and even nailed an internship for a prestigious photography company, California Center for Digital Arts. As I invested more time into growing as a photographer, I began to evolve more and even develop my own style. Seeing that there was an insane need for content creation, I also decided to hone in on videography, graphic design, and even social media management to be the best asset to my cliental.
Through much perseverance, the Divine blessed me with an abundance of opportunities I have seized. Not only am I blessed to be able to capture so many spectacular moments in time for individuals, but I also have the freedom of being a travel photographer. I have travelled to many states in the U.S in addition to traveling overseas to Thailand, Canada, Japan, and more. I provide content social media influencers such as Ashley , Adam, Jenny, Travelpreneurlife, just to name a few. Being a professional content creator has opened up a whole new avenue of happiness in my life. An avenue that overflows with an abundance of beautiful people and gorgeous locations.
Do What You Love
Despite the initial lack of support I have received from my others, I am beyond proud of myself for choosing to take this artistic path. When you follow your dreams not everyone will support you, but if you know in your spirit what you are called to do, it is your obligation to stay true to that. If you ventrue off that course and instead choose a path that is not in alignment with your passions, you will never be happy. I encourage you to take that jump and make that leap of faith. You may be alone when you do it. The journey will be challenging, but you can succeed if you choose to. The choice is always our own. And I wouldn’t want to live my life any other way. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. There is absolute endless beauty with these memories I have the privilege of capturing. And truth be told, this is only the beginning.
