Born and raised until the young age of 15 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, I along with my family migrated to the Washington, DC area in the fall of 1996. Since then, I have attended West Springfield High, followed by graduating in Business Administration from Longwood University in 2004. I continue to reside in the DC area and through photography; I was able to travel to multiple states and even to the Caribbean.
Years turned into decades since I fell in love with capturing that moment and turning it into an everlasting celebration. Pictures are a remarkable tool to save our memory and help us tell our stories to the world.
And that is precisely why I have this passion; to be able to provide it to my existing and future clients. I was blessed to have countless pictures as a baby, toddler, teenager and so forth, documenting every step of my upbringing. And through photographs, I can go back and appreciate the times and my family for providing that for me and now I have the opportunity to provide it for many.
