Photo by Hannah Laisne Photography

For the love of education: I received my technical education from Brooks Institute in Ventura, California. Here I had the pleasure of working with some extremely talented photographers including but not limited to Judy Host and Tim Meyer. Along with photography, I am also receiving a degree in Marketing.

For the love of fun: I love do-it-yourself projects, arts & crafts, and camping. I’m passionate about cooking (and eating!).When I have time, I love to go on adventures! Traveling is one of my favorite things to do. I have been to Europe twice by myself for a total of four months! I met my now fiancé while visiting London. He is a Kiwi and I just moved to Tauranga, New Zealand September 2018.

“As you travel solo, being totally responsible  for yourself, it’s inevitable

that you will discover  just how capable you are.”

For the love of giving back: Donating my time and services to those in need brings so much joy to my life. I have had the pleasure of working for and donating to many organizations throughout my life so far. I am excited about the journey my photography will take me on in the world of community service. I someday hope to use three of my biggest hobbies (photography, community service, and traveling) in order to spread love and smiles to people across the world. If you’re like me and love to help others, please consider donating to help fund photography sessions to children with mental, physical, and emotional disorders. If you’d like to collaborate or donate, please contact me.

For the love of equipment: What’s in my camera bag? Take a peek and see what I shoot with. I mainly shoot with my Canon 6D. I have several Canon lenses including a 70-200mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8, 35mm f/2 and a 24-105mm f/4. My favorite lens? I tend to use my 24-105 because it gives me the best range. However, I love my 50mm as well, especially for portraits! My Canon 600 ex-rt flash comes in handy when a little extra light is needed. In addition to my Canon equipment, I recently got a GoPro Hero 4 black! This is great for behind-the-scenes video and time lapses.
