Frequently asked questions
Do You Take Wedding Photos? 
I am not professionally trained in taking portrait photography and have one experience with shooting a wedding. Of course, I enjoy new experiences and am open to try new photo outings, but I do not wish to ruin someone's special day. Underneath is an example of a bridal portrait.

What Camera Do You Shoot With? 
I shoot with a Sony digital camera. I usually do not edit my photos, instead I believe in using whatever features are on my camera. I own a few film cameras, but I have not had the chance to play around with them yet. 

What Do You Want to Do When You Are Older? 
My passion is to counteract Human Trafficking. As of right now, I would like to join the Human Trafficking task force, whether it be as an FBI agent or a psychologist. I am currently working on multiple projects to combat this epidemic. 

Do You Take Graduation Photos?
I do not have formal training in taking portraits, however, I am completely open to taking graduation photos. I believe in taking photos of my subject based on their personality and interests, priding myself on the story telling elements of my photos. Along with this, I do not typically use Photoshop and have minimal experience, however, I am able to do simple touching up of blemishes. My price is  typically $50 for a 2-hour photo session (price may vary slightly based on location/the drive). Below are a few examples of my portrait photos. This is typically what I offer for family photos as well. If you are interested, feel free to email me at:

Where Have You Traveled? 
My mother an father may not be the richest people in the world, but they ensure that I travel. Being an adventurous soul, I take joy in these opportunities, loving to expand my mind and meet new people. I have not traveled out of the states except to go to Quebec, Canada; inwardly, I have photos from Washington D.C., Alaska, Ohio, and Washington State. 

Do You Take These Photos? 
This question is understandable when my mother is standing next to me at my booth or maybe a shopper is not sure if I am simply watching my booth. However, sometimes when I get this question people wonder if I get my photos from a supplier or something? I am not sure on this logic, but I can tell you that I am in fact the photographer.  I have been taking photos since I was 14 years old and plan on continuing with my talent.  Thank you so much for your support!

Foreign Exchange Dream

As most frequent visitors to my stand and blog understand, I started my business to support my foreign exchange trip to Norway or Germany.  However, my plans have been altered for me to go to Brazil my senior year through rotary exchange. I have completed my goal and will be leaving the 25th of July 2019! After "going dark" (refraining from social media) for 90 days, I will try to post photos under "brazil" at least once a month. Thank you for all the support!
