With my parents舗 support, I devoured education in my teens by attending conferences and seminars and taking workshops. I started my portrait and wedding business when I was 15, and it grew into a real studio. Very quickly, however, I fell into a routine.

Although the image was beautiful and elegant, it communicated less about the girls舗 relationship and didn舗t tell much of a story.
