They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. Whoever quoted that was a little off. A picture is worth way more than just 1,000 words. A picture is more than the words it produces. The beauty about photography is being able to capture a moment and preserve it forever. I first fell in love with photography when I bought myself my first point and shoot camera in college. I loved the idea of being able to freeze a moment in time and always being able to revisit it no matter how old. I love the fact that the human eye holds so many stories good and bad. To be able to look into someone's eyes and see what they've seen and portray what you see as the photographer on a photo. I'm a Photographer based out of the Northern Virginia area specializing in portrait photography. Ive been blessed with the opportunity to photograph newborns, children, weddings, pregnancies, couples, real estate, music artists and many different occasions and different settings. I prefer to engage in natural photography. Photos that aren't posed but capture you just being you ! The type of photos I love to take are those that are deep, full of love and emotion and that show you for who you really are. Whether it be at my studio in Virginia or outside on location. I specialize in photo editing and retouching using Adobe Photoshop CS6 on a Mac OS. Every shoot is private and personal and will not be shared with anyone else unless you give me permission to do so. I photograph by profession and every single shoot is a new adventure and a new lesson. When I take a photo of you I capture your dreams, your thoughts, your wants and desires. We all have a story to tell and my job is tell your story through photo. I'd love to sit here and tell you more about me but I'd rather show you more about me through my work, so please enjoy.

Let’s talk about Passion.

“A Willingness to Suffer for What You Love

The most famous example being the passion of Jesus Christ. This definition has changed my perspective on passion. I no longer use it to describe something that I feel strongly about or that excites me. I use it to describe an activity, goal or cause that I care about so much that I am willing to suffer for it. This new standard makes it easier to discern whether something is truly my passion or simply a strong interest.”

“We glorify God by using full throttle, the talents he has given us. Since God does not give talent arbitrarily, what he gives we should use. It's vital to find out what our talents are, because the existence of talent is a powerful way of ascertaining God's will for our occupational lives.”

Don’t ever stop practicing your craft. No matter how much success you achieve. There’s always something new to be learned and something that can be improved upon.

can·did

/ˈkandəd/

(of a photograph of a person) taken informally, especially without the subject's knowledge.

I love candids because you catch people just being themselves..like 100000% authentic. My experience is when you stick a camera in someones face...sometimes they freeze or don't know what to do or they pose for you. Nothing wrong with posing don't get me wrong but that's not always real...I prefer to catch you when no one is watching...when you have no idea. Because in that moment...I get a glimpse of the real you. THAT'S who I want to see and capture. Who are you?...or I should say who do you Think you are? It's always amazing to catch people in that split second of "real"...Off guard and in your own thoughts. I think you're beautiful that way.

Many of the people in my inner circle know that when I'm around...pictures will be taken most likely. I'm happy this one @noz8oz understands that and just lets me do my thing always without judgement. Because when we move on to our next life... pictures and memories in the hearts of our loved ones are all that's left. Take candids of the people around you that you Love the most and Love you back. Take as many as you can ❤️😉

FYI: Wide angle lenses aren’t just for landscapes. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
I love the 28mm f/2 lens by Sony. I still don’t understand why no one is talking about this lens. For the price point ($449) it’s very cheap (for Sony) and it’s able to handle low light situations with ease. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Shooting with @marrmarrrr at the carnival gave me a chance to see what this little lens can do in low light/bad light situations for portraits. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Some togs will give you the stank eye for using wide angle lenses for portrait work but who cares? ⁣⁣⁣⁣
#1 art is subjective so experiment and try new things with each session if time allows.⁣⁣⁣⁣
#2 taking portraits with wide angle lenses also means capturing awesome non traditional angles while telling the story of the background behind them. Versus shooting tight with a more standard portrait focal length like my 85mm G-Master. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
