I can't believe it's already been one year since I started doing photography. Flash back to the last week of March 2016 - a gut-wrenching break-up with the love of my life and a quarter-life crisis propelled me to pursue new hobbies I always had an itch to try. I signed up for a photography class last year in hopes of learning how to use every last feature of my beloved Olympus Pen. Three hours of intensive instruction in learning how to operate digital cameras in manual mode left me with a renewed spark of creativity. I booked my first photoshoot ever the day after that class.
I started off shooting fashion bloggers, then delved into test shoots with fashion models. Before I knew it, I was shooting editorials, running in and out of showrooms, and attending New York Fashion Week. I work 18 hours a day Monday-Friday and spend many Saturday afternoons with a cup of coffee and a pastry in cafes offering free WiFi in my neighborhood in order to edit photos and plan shoots.
I'm more exhausted and sleep-deprived than I've ever been in my entire life. But it's absolutely worth it and photography might have just saved me from going over the edge when I was 25. Something in my gut tells me it's going to take me places, so follow along on this new blog addition to see what's next!
