Happiness I experienced after watching the most magical sunrise of my life at Haleakala Summit located in Haleakalā National Park on Maui, Hawaii.
Writing about myself is hard, but telling you what I love is easy, so I'll start there...
I've loved photography ever since I was a child. Growing up, my dad was always taking pictures of all of us when we would visit the beaches or explore mountains. On weekends he would show me how to develop the film and I remember being mesmerized by the appearance of emerging pictures on white paper.
I love my spunky 5 year old who teaches me love and patience everyday. He and I worship the beach and sun together and are always in the water. He gives me lots of practice and more in shooting action portraiture.
I love adventure, especially of the traveling variety. I've got a bit of Wanderlust in my veins and have done trans-continental journeys from Alaska to Georgia (the state, although kudos to you if you also knew that it's a country), San Francisco to New York, and lots in between. I love most outdoor pursuits, like hiking and camping.
When I'm not behind the lens I can be found cooking new dishes, experimenting with my hair, and out on walks with my golden lab Caesar.
