You are beautiful. Each person possesses a personal and individual beauty that no one else can claim. Love yourself for who you are.
I've been a photographer as long as I can remember. It's all I've ever wanted to do. I was fortunate to have parents that encouraged my creativity, instead of forcing me to choose a more stable path. I took my first photography class in the fifth grade. As soon as I saw my first image emerge from a tray in the darkroom, I knew that I wanted this more than anything in the world. I went on to graduate from photography school in 1996 and have been working as a professional photographer ever since.
