I am glad you here!
While I wanted my photographs to tell you everything you need to know about me, I do understand if you wish to know a little bit more.
So, here it is;
A little bit more
I live in Chicago, I love coffee dates ( come, have one with me ), good books ( I am reading the City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty as of today ), and travel with friends to near and far.
As you probably already figured I also love photographing people. I love to capture their personality, learning what makes them smile or just to be themselves. These tiny moments I appreciate, love and work for.
"What a like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce." - K. Lagerfeld
My First Image
The first time I picked up a camera when I was 14 years old. I had photographed my little brother ( he's rocking a yellow jumper ) and I have used up a whole roll of film on him. Now I know it does not mean anything to you in a digital era, but I can assure you, I was in trouble back then to do so.
The only reason I was not grounded is
I've got one photo out of the roll that my family cherishes still to this date, and as a 'good' sister, I will share it with you.
I've met John Reilly 10 years ago. Upon walking into his studio I knew I wanted to learn every bit of knowledge from him about photography, and while I got his cart full of lighting equipment fell on the sidewalk due to my nervousness, he still gave me an opportunity to be the best I can be.
While I still work for him 'til this day, he pushes me to find my own voice with my work and thru my images.

I like to be on the road. The feeling to see and experience new places you never been before is powerful, and to going back to a location you have been gives you a sense of comfort.
What others say about me
Some of my most treasured images are the best that won't make the final selection. I love how people start to enjoy being front of the camera and let their guard down. The best moments are those!
Wish you a lovely day!
Thank you for being here and spend some of your precious time with me!
