A west texas must!! Keep your bride's dresses from blowing up everywhere in this lubbock wind


From : "Pozies Dress Weights are the tool you've needed all along for windy days. Instead of asking bridesmaids or collecting stones to hold down a wedding dress that won't stay put in gusts of wind, simply place Pozies around the dress to keep it in place.

The magnetic component allows for quick adjustments without having to remove and replace the Pozies. The unique, patent-pending design is safe for all fabrics, easy to clean, and a breeze to edit out in post-processing."

The Pursuit of Knowledge

my photography journey

In January 2019, I embarked on a journey of continuous improvement by enrolling in photography classes. The quest for knowledge became an inseparable part of my identity, and I embraced my inner photography nerd with pride.


mirrorless and mentoring

As I reflect on this journey, It's incredible to see how far I've grown and a lot of it has to do with education and learning! I'm so passionate about what I've learned and can not wait to share it with others so that they can thrive as well! 

The Road Ahead!

A Glimpse of Passion

It all began when I stumbled upon my grandparents' simple point-and-shoot camera while exploring Colorado. Little did I know, this discovery would ignite my passion for photography.I got my pictures quickly, and had a blast taking them.


A Dream Takes Root

January 2018 marked a pivotal moment. It was the time I decided to take this photography thing seriously and ventured into the world of entrepreneurship, launching my own photography business.


The Wedding Chronicles Begin

The fall of 2018 witnessed a significant milestone - my time to shoot a wedding. It was love at first snap, as I found myself immersed in the art of capturing one of life's most cherished events.



As I have significantly grown my business and profitability, it's time to pay it forward! I started mentoring and sharing knowledge with fellow photographers and officially am offering mentorship opportunities for new photographers!
