As a native of Lakeland Florida, I have been an active photographer since the age of 7 when my parents placed a camera in my hands. I studied photography throughout middle and high school and graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology with a Degree in Digital Photography. Capturing the magic that occurs in everyday life is my passion. A camera is never far from hand as I go through my day. I am driven to continue capturing the essence of the special moments for people with my photography as they experience those once in a lifetime events that occur throughout our lives. I also thrive on spending time with my family and special friends whether at home or at my favorite spot by the ocean.
