Hi! I’m Millie & I’m a part time portrait photographer and university student in New York. I travel around the area from Manhattan to Long Island. I have spent most of life in a small town of Pennsylvania. In there I was able to appreciate a different type of beauty and learn about photography from both my father and older brother. I went from taking below par pictures of myself to finally understanding ISO, shutter speed, and the art of photography. Since then I have been practicing non-stop. Even when I don’t have my camera with me, I will always look at things in a relatively different perspective due to photography.
After moving to New York this year I have begun to strongly focus on portrait photography. But, I’ve also begun to learn more about other areas in photography like street photography & landscapes. You might also see me taking fancy food pictures at a restaurant, my interests in this art are not limited.
My goal in photography is to evoke emotion or tell a story. To me, it’s way more than pressing a button and sharing the picture online or sending it to a client. Whoever may see the photographs I take, I want them to be memorable for not just them, but for myself as well. The moments that we have right now should be appreciated in any way, and with my photography I want you to feel that same way as well.
Taking pictures is definitely not the only thing I do in my free time! Some of my other hobbies include graphic design, digital art, and playing the piano. But, at the end of the day, you’ll probably find me watching Master of None or rewatching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty for the 50th time.
