Have I always aspired to be a photographer? No, it wasn't always so. But the birth of my two beautiful children, my passion for baking, my love of travel all led me to the path of photography; wanting to capture the moment, a smile to remember for a lifetime. Taking pictures of my kids became almost impossible when they started running in the other direction soon as they spotted the camera in my hands. That's when I got into food photography and it has been an abiding passion for the last 4 years.

To me, photography is an art, and in art, as in life, passion is everything. The rest is just details.
