I have always been a singer/musician since I was a little girl. I would perform at school and honestly whenever I got the chance. Randomly at like 8 or 9, I just decided to stop singing, so much so, that if anyone would ask me if I know how to sing, I would tell them no completely. In 2019, I was planning a promotional video and was trying to find the perfect background music, and randomly decided to create my own, that I can say is the first time I decided to make music and sing again. A small gesture but it definitely changed me and for the better. Read more>>

Josh Hsu and Max Fisco
Max and I are former student-athletes, injured due to poor training and guidance from physical health professionals such as personal trainers and physical therapists. Max had both his shoulders dislocated on more than one occasion and I suffered a spinal disc herniation and left shoulder dislocation.

Growing up, I remember being the girl with the camera. Field trips, vacations, parties. I was always taking pictures. After planning my own wedding, I knew I wanted to be part of the wedding industry. My wedding photographers made me realize that photography is such a massive part of a wedding day! I felt it was my calling. I started investing in my education and in professional gear and six years later, here I am! Capturing love stories and providing a one-way ticket to a moment in time.

Started in high school working at a bicycle shop in Michigan selling & servicing modern and vintage high-end bicycles.
