Mentor | Mother | Creator
I'm a mother of two, a photographer, and an educator with a passion for embracing creativity, defying norms, and living a life that fulfills your passions.
Back in 2012, I started my photography empire right in the tiny living room of my Brooklyn apartment. From there, I honed my skills in capturing the beauty of motherhood, maternity, and everyday women. It's been a wild journey, from arriving in America with just $300 in my pocket to running a six-figure studio business. I've realized my dream and turned it into a thriving reality. And now, I want to share my knowledge and inspiration with you.
My purpose is to help you succeed by providing the tools and strategies to create an irresistible photography business. Join me on this exciting adventure as I empower photographers to achieve their goals, transform their lives, and make a real impact on others.
