I am a wedding + high school senior portrait photographer based in Charleston, SC!
In only a couple of words, how would you describe your style of photography?
Light, bright and bold!
Tell us about one of your most memorable photoshoots or perhaps a favourite photo you have taken?
One of my favorite sessions I've photographed was a "Notebook" inspired styled shoot that I hosted when I was only 18 years old. It was my first attempt at hosting a "workshop" for other photographers, and those images became some of my most popular work at the time! I'm still so proud of them.
As a photographer, nurturing your creativity while trying to balance self employment and life can be a little tricky sometimes. Where do you find the inspiration to continue creating and maintaining consistency?
For me, self care and prioritizing my mental health have been HUGE in avoiding burnout and protecting my creativity. Taking time away from work to go to the gym, get outside in nature, cook a homemade meal or even just spend time with a friend makes a DRAMATIC difference int he way I'm able to show up well in my business. I also make sure to work in time for PERSONAL work - shoots that have no other purpose than to be creative and have fun!
Having grown as a photographer, is there any piece of advice that you could give to yourself when you first started down this path, or wish you had known sooner?
