Let me introduce myself…

My name is Victoria, and let me start out by thanking you for visiting my corner of the internet. I hope you enjoy some of the photos posted here.

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the concept of taking pictures, but it was in 2008 that I developed an interest in photography as an art. Nature and still-life are the styles I typically shoot, but I enjoy portraiture as well. That said, I have also done work with sports photography, pet portraits, and a variety of other styles and subjects.

In 2011, I realized that photography had become my way of processing the things I was going through in my life. This may sound odd, but the best way I can explain it is that some people write songs, some poetry; some people paint or dance or play a sport; I take pictures. Robert Hayden said, "Art is not escape, but a way of finding order in chaos, a way of confronting life." That is what photography is to me: finding order in the chaos, and finding beauty in the ordinary. Everyone has their art, and photography is mine. It helps me see the world in new ways and teaches me so many lessons outside of lighting and composition.

It is an incredible blessing to do what I love and have other people enjoy it as well. If you’re one of those people and would like to follow along with my photography adventures, head over to my blog and subscribe. If you ever have any photography related questions, just ask! Photography has helped me in my life and I want to use it to help others, even if it's simply by giving photography advice. Feel free to connect with me on the socials. I’d love to hear from you.
