You may be wondering, “Who’s the girl behind the camera?” Family-oriented, passionate, and a travel-lover, I’m the kind of person who gravitates to the simple joys in life. The three things I love most are my family, my doggie, and my photography. And I do absolutely adore dogs! If you want your pup to tag along—be my guest! They make the world so enjoyable.
I was born and raised in Maryland in a close-knit family with two supportive parents and (seriously!) the best brother in the world. My parents always taught me to follow my dreams and to never give up, despite the battles I might face. I started my photography journey after graduating from college in 2013. While I didn’t know what I wanted to do for my career yet, I knew I loved photography. Soon after, I received my first DSLR camera as a birthday present. I still remember the feeling I had holding that camera in my hands, knowing for sure I wanted to impact people’s lives with it. That’s the moment I decided to become a professional photographer. I began by photographing my friend’s children and small events. Next thing I knew, I was at the University of Maryland on stage capturing graduates starting the next journey of their lives.
In 2015, I decided to dive deeper into my passion, and I launched Authorized Shot Photography. From then on, I’ve never looked back! If you are looking for an all-around photographer in the Washington D.C., Virginia, and Maryland area, I’m here to capture your story. I’m located in Southern Maryland near DC and Prince Georges County. I believe in going the extra mile (literally!) to make my clients smile.
