Going Solo!

Back in February of 2002, I lost my HR job in Chicago, and I was wondering what to do with my life. Someone asked me one of the most important questions of my life... What would you do if money didn't matter? For me, the answer was easy - travel and take pictures. So, I decided to find a job in photography and see what would happen. And the rest, as they say, is history...

Flash forward 5 1/2 years. I now live in Boston (well, Woburn actually) and I'm preparing to leave my part-time studio job and take on my own photography business full-time!!!!!!! I can't believe it! It's been such a blessing to see how the Lord has provided for me over the years, especially since I moved out here last year.

I still can't believe how much I've learned and grown in 5 years. This, of course, is all thanks to the many amazing photographers who have graciously taught me along the way... Steven E. Gross gave me a chance and the opportunity to learn the hard way - by actually doing it. My 5+ years working with Steven at Real Life Weddings has truly made me the photographer I am today. And the wonderful Matt & Enna Grazier who I've worked with for the last year have been such an encouragement and inspiration! Since working with them I can see such a change in myself - my work has improved, my passion has increased, and my confidence is up! Without them, I don't know if I'd even feel ready for all of this. Every photographer I've worked with has taught me something and I'm so thankful to each one - Robert Mirani, Stephen Serio (aka Serpico), Mark Tomaras, Alternate Angles, Tsar Fedorsky, and many more. Thank you for all of your encouragement and help over the years!

I'm so excited for this new chapter in my life and I can't wait to see what happens next!


  1. good luck going solo* you are such a wonderful photographer and a good person* you will do amazing*

  2. Yo K, where's you 8? I don't think you should spend time planning the answer's. My best writting comes by sitting down and doing right away.
