I usually only like to wear neutrals but since my summer kicked off with a trip to Mexico I stalked up on my fair share of brights (see another bold look). It was a nice change from the norm and fit in perfectly amongst other beach goers and Tulum eateries. While in Tulum I had the opportunity to dine at the amazing and well-known restaurant, Hartwood. The food and atmosphere were exceptional. The open air and fire burning stove make for a sexy and very picturesque evening. The chef, who left a restaurant in New York to start Hartwood, serves up some of the best food I have ever tasted. We loved dinning on local fried octopus and pork ribs. SO good my mouth is still watering. I had wished to take more pictures so I could share the beauty of the night but they are extremely private and asked for little photography. At the time, when they told me no more pictures, I was extremely upset but now I understand and share in their want of keeping Hartwood only something you can experience in person.
I have always been fascinated by photography. I have spent countless hours studying photographs of people, while considering the angles, the lighting, and the editing the photographer used. I love the fact that photography has the amazing ability to transport us to a different time, or place with one single shot.
It was not until I started blogging that I decided to take photography more seriously. With camera in hand, I started experimenting with photographs of my apartment, of friends, and family. It was after experimenting in this way that I realized my passion for photography. I have no formal training or background in this field, but I realize that passion can open your eyes to the impossible, so not only did I invest in the proper equipment I also spent the necessary time to learn everything I could to enhance the skill it takes to be proficient with this passion.
I enjoy, and appreciate the opportunity to photograph bloggers, couples, influencers who make an impact in their profession, families, and also lifestyle type setting. I take an individual approach to each person I photograph. I make every effort to embrace and highlight the focus of what they are trying to convey to their audience with each session.
I look forward to working together and capturing the potential magnificence of your moments through my eyes and the lens of my camera.
