My fear with Paris is that my eyes and mind will one day forget the beauty. I know I won’t forget the experience but I never want to forget the beauty that is all around me. I find myself staring at sunsets, buildings, and moments longer than normal. I know I won’t remember every detail, for how can ones mind comprehend everything Paris encompasses, it is only the something the soul can feel. I have learned over the past few weeks that Paris isn’t something just to see but it must also be felt. The warm sun beaming on the Seine, the shuffle of the Parisians on their way to work, the buzz at your local cafe, the energy from years past. It is all something to really feel and experience. Paris is one of the only cities I have been to that gives you the feeling of being miles away from normalcy. It is if you took a Delorean back to days past. Almost like you are an extra on the set of a movie. The way the sun shines through the leaves and hits the water, the perfectly aged buildings, the books being sold on the side of the street, the man playing music, and the atmosphere. You must enjoy it all! Because our memories fade, our eyes age, but the way Paris makes you feel will last a lifetime!
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.
