Isn’t it fascinating that something that happens in your childhood may well influence you for the rest of your life? As a small child, I took my first steps because I saw a camera in my mother’s hands and desperately wanted to touch it. Or perhaps my mother just made up this story.
Whatever the truth may be, my real story began with my attraction to the arts. I have always been intrigued by the arts and attended art school for years, which has given me a background in the classical arts. During my college years I traveled through much of Europe, and it remains my favorite region to this day. Having been immersed by its culture, I draw much of my inspiration from European artists, photographers, writers and cinematography, all in their own ways influence me to develop my own unique style of photography.
At the age of 14 I became reacquainted with photography – after my childhood attraction to my mother’s camera – and started taking photography classes, learned how to develop film and make prints. Even though I remained intensely interested in photography, I did not think of it as a possible profession. So instead of pursuing a career in photography, I attended college, and earned a master’s degree in International Relations.
When after college the love of my life proposed and we were planning for our future life together it was very important for us to find a great photographer to preserve those precious moments of our live. It was then that that I suddenly realized that indeed, photography can be a profession and not just a passion. At that moment I began my professional journey in photography, and I have been living my dream for the past four years.
Just as I was an excited bride-to-be a few years ago you will be going down the path of this most joyous moment of your life. I would love to hear from you, and I hope that you will give me the opportunity to preserve forever this very special golden moment of your life.
