Being a photographer to me is more than shooting quality photographs, it’s about capturing a child’s laughter or a bride’s emotion on that precise moment, and making that memory last forever. My name is Irma, and I am a professional photographer and creative photojournalist. The art of photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I’ve been developing black and white and sepia photos in dark rooms ever since grammar school. I’ve continued to take photography classes up until after I graduated college, and was still developing in dark rooms. 3 years ago, I knew it was time to turn my hobby into a professional career. Now with digital SLR’s and photo software, technology has added a whole new light to the world of photography and in countless ways has helped enhanced and assisted the skills of the work. However, without the love and the passion of the art, a true photographer will not be able to capture her masterpiece. I love what I do. To be able to do this as a profession is a blessing and a dream come true.
