Hi! I'm Vanessa!

My journey with photography started in 2010 while I was attending Major League Gaming events/tournaments. I'm a true gamer at heart, but when I fell in love with the work of Enrique Espinoza, I started focusing and looking at the photography coverage, more so than the games being played by competitors. With the support of my husband, I purchased the Canon Rebel XSi in 2012 and things took off from there. I worked as a media photographer for Quantic Gaming + eSports Nation for 2012 & 2013 while developing + honing my craft. 

I take images from a photojournalistic perspective, I like to capture the moments as they happen. I love seeing the emotions between people evoked in my images. It gives me a warm feeling in my tummy. I can also do posed shots too, but my work thrives best with unposed + raw images. Sessions take place on location, normally outdoors, but can be indoors or in your own home if needed.
