Houston Photographer & Retoucher
I'm a Houston-based beauty, fashion & portrait photographer and retouching artist. I was born in Jackson, MS but I "grew up" in Chicago, IL. I am an artist that happens to work with a camera. I have been creating artwork since I was 9 years old. I started drawing portraits of people and it became a passion of mine. Humans are the most interesting subjects to me. They seem to show the largest range of emotions and those emotions can be so complex and tell the most amazing stories.
I discovered photography when I was 28 while I was in college studying advanced composition in illustration and animation. I loved capturing the beauty and essence of a subject and then taking that photo and manipulating it to tell the story that I wanted to tell. I decided to educate myself on the photographic image making art-form and took several classes on understanding and shaping light. It took me some time to decide what manner of portraits I was most interested in creating. Then I realized that beauty and fashion were to me some of the most expressive forms of real life authentic expression. I loved digital art so retouching was a no brainer for me. I moved to Houston, TX and opened my studio where I began shooting my portfolio and eventually began taking clients and getting paid to do what I love to do.
Since I started my photography business I have been fortunate to fill my life with visual arts and lots of new friends and very talented creative people. I have worked with some of the most beautiful and humble models who I now consider friends. I’m so very blessed to have a studio space where I feel free to create and develop images that matter to me.
