the first time I felt it


Up until this photo shoot, I wasn’t feeling all that comfortable with my camera. I had watched a YouTube video prior to this shoot & felt like I had that “A-Ha!” moment & I wanted to see what I could do.

I put a model call out & Jess immediately answered she was interested. All I could think was YAAAAS! First off, Jess is such a cool girl. We’ve hung out a handful of times & I just really genuinely like her. SECOND - She’s stunning. Like, whaaaat! I was so excited to capture her essence.

We met up on Mt. Washington & had a BLAST. I found this little off chute with these pretty white wildflowers & this awesome graffiti wall - plus the lighting was perfect. It was then it happened — I had goosebumps for the first time during a shoot. I was SO excited I actually had GOOSEBUMPS. I had no idea I could feel that way about photography, but here I was - FEELIN’ IT.

I came home, immediately edited them & thanks to a special set of presets - these photos came to life, gave me every tone I had ever envisioned for a photo shoot. It was the first time I actually felt like I could do this.

And I don’t think I’ve wanted to stop since :)
