I have been taking pictures since I was 13 years old. One day when I was at ballet out company was rehearsing for the "Nutcracker" and I decided to take pictures of the Sugar Plum Gran Pas de Deux. After that moment I learned I had a huge passion for photography. Although I had no idea what I was doing I just began taking pictures of all the dancers and rehearsals and soon began working with the company photographer and learning alongside him. I became California Ballet's student photographer a year later. I began branching out from ballet and began taking pictures more along the lines of fashion just with my friends at school as my models. I also worked with Adriene Hughes, UCSD Media Director, on a small film that focused on the motion of the human body and we used dancers as our inspiration. Now at 17 I have developed a mini business where girls can contact me and schedule a shoot and we just have fun with it. I have learned so much and hope to go far with my photography and break into the fashion industry.
