I have been into photography since i was a little girl and was always the one at the event that had the little camera snapping away. Last year i made it a career and have eight weddings, portrait shoots, birthdays, child births, maternity shoots, cd release parties, and bands under my belt now. I have a professional canon 50d camera. I love those special poses but my favorite is the candid moments people don't realize im capturing.
