Honestly, I had no idea I would be a photographer but I remember when I was a kid I use to love cameras and loved taking pix of people with their phones. I’m sure it started from there but I had the passion to make people smile and looking at a picture of you or something or someone and smiling is something else to me. So I’m sure it’s part of the reasons I became a photographer.

Being a photographer since 2016 my greatest motivation, is the Smiles from clients when ever I deliver a job.
