My love and passion for photography started at a very young age and has only grown over the years. I started off my career as a photographer with The Picture People in 2005, learning efficiency skills and the basics of providing a photography session. My creative options were somewhat limited in this particular studio, therefore I was able to focus on the technical side of photography as well as my interpersonal skills with my clients. This studio operated on a film basis; digital photography had not been adopted by this studio just yet.


In September of 2006, I began my employment with Lifetouch National School Studios in Scottsdale, AZ. The training I was exposed to quickly developed my knowledge of digital photography and familiarized me with all types of photography equipment. Before I completed my first year with Lifetouch, I began photographing for Prestige Portraits, which was the studio division of Lifetouch that specialized in Senior Photography (which has since been changed to Cilento Photography). My knowledge of a Nikon DLSR camera, studio lighting and equipment began to advance quite rapidly after my daily routine included 2-10 sessions per day as well as having the knowledge of other veteran photographers at my disposal . I was able to experiment with posing, lighting techniques, composition and various other areas to satisfy my creative needs as an artist. I inquired on as many subjects as I could in order to expand my understanding and comfort level of all aspects of photography. I developed some wonderful relationships with my fellow photographers, who have now become career mentors and wonderful friends.


In January of 2014, I decided to venture out on my own as a freelance portrait and event photographer full time. I love being able to preserve rare and precious moments with artistic and creative individuality that can be shared with generations to come. My mission is to take my time in getting to know each client with clear communication and understanding to ensure your portraits are captured true to your heart.
