This is my all time favorite photo of 2016! It was a photo shot on an overcast day around 2:00pm, which is the worst time of day for lighting if you are a photographer. But it all worked out. This photo was shot in Southern Florida on a little island full of of limestone rock. I was vacationing down there and had heard about the “treasure island,” I knew I had to go! My grandpa took my for the afternoon and we spent about 2 hours walking up and down the beach. It was a really special area. The waves were really high because a storm was rolling in. I don’t think you can tell by the photo, but I was actually standing on a ledge of a rock to get this shot, and when I looked down it probably was a 40 foot drop. “House on a Hill” was shot with my Fuji XT1.
My passion is fashion photography. I am so intrigued by the fashion world, its inspirations, and how you can express it though your own personal style. For me being able to capture it on camera is the most amazing feeling in the world. I love bringing out the true beauty in people in a unique way that shows them how beautiful they are. It is such a unexplainable wonderful feeling to have a model in front of my camera, look through the viewfinder, and then click the shutter button. I really love capturing all types of fashions from casual to high fashion. In each photo shoot I do, I try and keep my same style and only change the pose. My dream is to be a known fashion photographer and have my own fashion magazine. I am lucky enough to grow up in the fashion business with my family, so I am able to start now.
My fashion inspiration is anything vintage or victorian, I highly admire the beauty and elegance of that era. It has such a brilliance of colors, patterns, and styles. Anything from blush pink to floral to pearls is how I express myself through fashion. The old golden aged Hollywood actresses, especially Audrey Hepburn, are what really inspired me in both in the photography world and fashion world. I try and keep a modern retro combination and technique in my fashion photography.
Below are ad campaigns that I designed and also photographed for my Mom and sister’s clothing brand.
