Picture this: the year is 2009. I'm 13 and my parents bought me a digital point-n-shoot camera to take with me on a school trip. Ever since then, I was hooked. With that cigarette packet sized camera I was taking photographs nearly every day, including of me throwing paper hearts (cut out by yours truly) at the lens in the middle of a field.  

 

My days of throwing crudely cut paper hearts around are long gone, but you’re still bound to find me with a camera. These days, I exclusively use 35mm and 120 film, and have fallen in love with photographing people; especially women. Women are confined by expectations of body image and decorum, and I'm passionate about empowering women to redefine those standards. If you want to celebrate your femininity, sexuality and beauty, let's do it with art. I’ve built a fairly sizeable portfolio of portraits, from boudoir to headshots. 

 

I was lucky enough that uploading my photographs to the internet earned me a little attention. My images have been published in a handful of magazines online and in print (I’ve also been interviewed once or twice!) and have taken on some paid work, like shooting events and a couple of weddings, on a freelance, mostly informal basis.
