As a photographer, I am deeply sentimental. My kids and my family are everything to me.

Following my teacher’s advice, this year I practiced taking my camera everywhere. I documented joyous occasions like weddings and parties where people have been able to finally gather after a year of COVID-19 restrictions.

This year, I also learned about myself by experimenting with self-portraits. I even bought a selfie stick to help me take these photographs of myself. With the help of new photo techniques, such as different angles, backgrounds, and foregrounds, my photography improved.

I have such wonderful memories of doing photography because it’s become a part of mine and my family’s lives. Before I used to take pictures just for memories and nothing else. They say if you do something, you should do it with passion, don’t just do it. And now I take pictures with passion.
