Q: What is your favorite part about photographs & being a photographer?
A: "I love the impact that a photograph can have, just like any other art form. One of the things I love is that there are so many different applications with photography. Without the photographs of the clothes, the clothes wouldn't sell. When I do wedding and couple shoots I love that I'm able to capture those raw feelings. It's so fun to just be in the moment with the person you love and then look back and be able to see your pure happiness in that moment."

Q: Where does your inspiration come from?
A: "Honestly I find inspiration everywhere. Every time I see an image, it has the potential to be inspiring. Billboards, magazines, advertisements, etc. I'd say the every day place I find my inspiration is Instagram. I follow a ton of amazing photographers and when I see the beauty they create, I attempt to recreate that same kind of beauty. I also gain a lot of inspiration from art history, and the history of photography specifically. Knowing the significance of imagery from the beginning and it's history really helps me push my experimentation and creativity."
Q: Who is your favorite photographer?
A: "One of my favorite photographers is India Earl, she's so good at working with the people she shoots and just capturing love. One of my all time favorite photographers is Richard Avedon. He did fashion photography and changed the way fashion photography was seen. Look him up!"
Q: Who would you want to photograph if you could take anyone’s picture?
A: "John Mayer and Justin Timberlake are two of my favorite artists and it would be a dream to do a photoshoot with them."
