My love for photography started when I was a little girl given my first Polaroid camera. As I grew, that love only intensified. It's my passion to capture a moment that keeps me moving forward. Whether my art is appreciated or not, I take comfort in the words of one of my photography mentors, Henri Cartier-Bresson, who said, "A photograph is neither taken or seized by force. It offers itself up. It is the photo that takes you. One must not take photos." My goal is to capture moments that offer themselves to me.
