I am a portrait photographer because I enjoy people; I also understand what it's like to be in front of the camera.  There is a sense of elegance in every photograph I create but I'm still able to keep the environment fun and exciting.  During my studies at the Art Institute of Austin, in Austin, TX, I applied myself to learning the technical skills necessary to create beautiful photographs. During that time, I also interned at My Photo Gal for three years and later became a second photographer for the company.
