My Story: Where it all began
I guess you could say my love for shooting photographs first began while looking at old family photo albums as a child. My grandma had several photo albums in her closet years ago that was full of school photographs, birthday parties, holidays, etc. of my mom and her siblings as they grew up. Those photographs spoke volumes and conveyed a narrative without using words. I was so intrigued by this. There were several photos of family members I have never met because they may have passed before I got a chance to meet them. I couldn’t help but wonder who these people were at the time the photos were taken. What were they like? What made them happy or sad? Did they have the same insecurities as me? If so, how did they deal with them? Those questions sparked my interest in how photographs freeze a moment in time. This is what initially sparked my desire to shoot photographs of my own.
So my mom and dad got my sister and me two Jazz DZ50 400 ISO Disposable Cameras (very 90’s if you ask me) to shoot our very own photographs. I guess you could say that is where my “partnership” with my sister (me as the photographer and she as the model) initially started as well.
Through digital and film photography, my objective is to tell your story, tell my story, or tell the stories of others I meet. I want to portray the feel of a person or place so that my audience can read the image and respond to it. When it comes to shooting photographs of people, I want to get to know the person I am shooting. I really want to bring out what makes an individual special and what beautifully sets them apart from the rest of the world.
