I took my first photography class decades ago, and I was immediately hooked. Ah... the days of film and dark room. Although I loved photography, I didn't believe I could be a professional photographer. Because I also loved to travel, it seemed like a logical choice to pursue a career in the hospitality industry. Little did I know that my travels around the world would give me the opportunity to photograph some of the most incredible people and landscapes.
However, it wasn't until I discovered dance and yoga that I realized my true passion for photography. Dancers, particularly ballroom and ballet, always captivated me. Because my daughter was a competitive ballroom dancer at the time, I would capture intimate moments between couples on the dance floor. Around the same time, I was introduced to yoga and felt fulfilled by the practice. After practicing for over 17 years, I decided it was time to receive my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification. Teacher training not only deepened my practice but my skills as a photographer.
While working in the travel industry for over 23 years, I decided to also pursue photography professionally. Working for Pravassa, a travel company which only specializes in Wellness Travel, I have the perfect opportunity to merge my passion for wellness with photography. My favorite type of shoots are of people doing the things they love outdoors - whether it be in a city or in nature. Not only do you get the best lighting, but it makes the shoot adventurous, light-hearted and expressive.
