Something that I am passionate about is photography. I did not think it was possible to build any type of clientele merely off of my friends and family; however, through hosting a couple of free photoshoots, I was able to expand my network and increase my circle. Once I expanded my network, I began a small photography business on the side which focused on shooting graduates, families, special events, and pre-birthday photos (i.e. Quinceñeras, Sweet 16’s, etc…). This activity required a lot of communication and dedication to whatever party you were working with. Therefore, my communication skills immediately increased and I was successfully booking clients due to my efficient feedback. Besides that, I found it to be incredibly satisfying when my clients love the end product. Additionally, this allowed me to really explore what kind of images I wanted to publish. The type of photography that I focus on is portraiture and my style leans towards the more light, airy, and brighter color scheme.
