My father was a portrait photographer. I would carry his camera bag. Honestly, I became a little bored with it all as an observer so I never considered picking up a camera myself until I traveled to Europe. I then understood what my father was trying to share with me. I was afraid to try portraits until a couple of years ago. Now I challenge myself to combine my love of nature photography and portrait photography. One of my goals is to be "natural." I use natural light and as little post processing as possible.
