She loves capturing personalities in photos and what started as a high school gig has turned into her business. She does what she loves which is why she’s been successful. Consistency, hard work and a passion for what you do will take you far in life. Take a look at this student spotlight and let it encourage you wherever you’re at in the journey!
I currently shoot weddings, families, seniors, maternity, newborn, headshots….just about everything. I’ve been in business since 2016, but it really started taking off in 2019.
I worked for my high school’s weekly newspaper. I had a friend that was a photographer for the newspaper and he pulled me into it! We shot every sporting event, school dance, assembly, graduation…anything you could think of! I worked my way up from freshman year to Photography Editor by my junior year.
I love capturing people’s personalities in photos. There’s nothing that makes me happier than a client coming back saying “you really captured us as a couple/family”.
Just making it this far as a small business! Running my own business was NEVER on my radar at all. I don’t have the marketing or sales personality so I wasn’t confident that I’d make it. But even through covid I pushed through and I’m really proud of that.
I’d say, I would have started my business a LONG time ago!
