Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean no on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Who got you into photography?

Growing up, there was always either a camera and or a cam corder out. From recording gymnastic competitions to making little barbie movies with my sisters, the camera was always out. In my family, pictures are a GOD SENT. A pure capture of time that can hold such centime, they mean a lot. My mother always had a "fancy" camera that id love to sneak away and play with. She knew I would sneak away with it but she could tell that there was a connection like no other with a camera in my hand. 
My sister Mariah one day saw a photo I took on my other sisters iPod and she immediately asked my dad if we could get me a camera. Ever since then, it has not left my hands.

 

Why Sports Photography?

Growing up, I was always a super active kid. Going from gymnastic competitions to softball practices and games, there was no break. Sports became my outlet and stress relief when things started to get rough at home. My mother passed when I was 14, one week before I was able to try out for the high school softball team. That was my biggest dream at that time, to be able to be apart of the softball team for my school and my mom supported me all the way through it. After her passing, I experienced a lot of health issues that resolved to me having to end my sports careers, and dreams of going to Michigan to play softball. 
Losing those outlets, photography was the only other outlet I had left. I was offered an opportunity to take photos for my cousins jv team and the second I stepped onto the sideline, I knew I found where I was supposed to be. Being able to still be in the midst of the crazy game energy while being able to capture young individuals play out their dream gave me the sense of peace.
