MY STORY

_edited_edited.jpg

Ever since I was a child I remember always wanting to be in pictures, smiling for the camera, and capturing stories through film. I’m adopted from Sierra Leone, West Africa and my mother always tells the story about the first time she saw me. It was a photo that captured her heart. One photo caused my parents to cross the world to find me. I grew up realizing that one photo can change the course of your life, just like it did for me. 

When I got my very first phone all I did was take pictures of my friends, family, food and of course me! I rarely ever called anyone; I spent hours shooting photos. I loved capturing every moment that I could. I was so comfortable holding that camera and felt like there was so much of the world I needed to freeze in a frame.  

I BELIEVE IN

  • Capturing Connection

  • Timeless Photographs

  • Being Yourself

  • Candid Moments

  • Raw Story Telling 

  • Realness

MY
WHY

I want to take my work all over the world capturing the different parts of culture through people and telling their story. Right now, I'm setting goals for myself. I’m challenging myself to do better, to become an even stronger photographer and videographer, capturing what the eye can’t. I want to freeze in time moments we might otherwise forget. I know there are going to be many mistakes in building this photography business; they'll be ups and downs for sure. All I know is that this is the journey I want to take and I absolutely love what I'm doing.
