When did you first know that you wanted to be a photographer?
Taking photos has been a lifetime thing for me, starting as a teenager. I’ve always loved to capture moments in time. The transition to becoming a professional photographer happened when I started taking photographs of my first child, Tasha. People started commenting on my pictures of her and asking if they could do a session with me.
What were some of the most inspiring shoots you have done so far?
I find that working on collaborative shoots with other individuals be it make up artists, stylists, photographers inspire me in my work. I’m able to learn new things, see other approaches to work and styles. It’s a great opportunity for me to stretch myself and my quality of work.
How do you define your particular style or approach to photography?
Before I embark on any shoot I like to create a mood board – this allows both my client and myself to ensure that we are on the same page. This also creates a very collaborative approach in which both parties become more natural and relaxed during the shoot as a lot of the work has been done prior to getting on set. I like to keep things very natural and to ensure that my clients or subjects are comfortable in front of my camera.
