Who are your top 3 Girl Crushes?

When did you first pick up a camera?
I think I was 16 when I fell in love with photography. Before that I was just a painter. I thought those who were pausing to take pictures weren’t living in the moment. And then I found an old polaroid and that was it! I realized I could make my paintings come to life with film.


Where do you draw inspiration from, and do you have a creative process?
I find inspiration mostly through music, films, travel, my friends. My creative process is all over the place. When I go to a shoot I have an idea for the mood/style i want to portray. However, it always changes based on who I am shooting. I like to vibe off their personality and play around. When you try to control the shoot too much you kill the spirit and the photos turn out life-less.

What are 5 must have items you can't live without?
A camera, black boots, vintage denim, coconut oil, dance parties!
