How I Started...
When I was 14 years old my father gave me a small digital point-and-shoot camera which he claimed was broken; turns out it only needed new batteries to start working again. After a good 6 months of using this little camera, my mother enrolled me in photography classes during the summer and that's when I got my first Digital SLR. Needless to say, I've never stopped taking pictures since then.
The name Luz Photography came from a very special person I met several years back by the name of Luz Velazquez. She inspired me to start my own photography business, and so here I am today. With the help of my husband and the loving memory of Luz, I set forth into the photography world.
I have been taking pictures close to 10 years now and can't imagine doing anything else. I love capturing special moments during different occasions, ranging from the magical welcoming of a newborn to lovely weddings, high school graduations, or simply family portraits. I am humbled knowing that my images are up in peoples homes and are shared with their family and friends. The sheer fact that I am able to put a smile on a parent's face fulfills my day and makes what I do all the more meaningful.
On a side note, I am very passionate about elephants, and when you meet me you will immediately notice it. To keep things entertaining, during my sessions I wear a funky pair of pants and a strap that have elephants on them. I want to be known as the elephant pants lady photographer. Like an elephant, I will never forget having taken your pictures (though your name might be a different story, ha.)
