Greetings friend! I’m Lotus, nerd, geek, otaku, lover of all things artistic and more. I work from my home office in Mobile, Alabama where the weather is rainy and hot three-quarters of the year and snow is a myth. My love of photography can only be trumped by my love for traveling. I'm a Baandari at heart, what can I say. I've spent most of my life traveling the majority of North America and seeking to go to more places for all the reasons.
I am an available light technique photographer with an extensive background in photojournalism and fashion. One may however say my style is a cross between film's deep contrast and the bright vivids of the digital age. My love to capture every moment in the elegance and magic of how it happens. When it happens. As it happens. Because life can be just as magical as the fairy tales we grew up on. And maybe a few of us still escape to on the weekends.
In my free time, I love to spend time with my amazing kid and loving polycule, cook, read and play video games when I don't find myself binging a new show on Netflix. And travel. Have I mentioned I love to travel?
I am previously a sales rep and photography teacher at Calagaz in Mobile. Where I was trained in Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm and Canon cameras and more gear accessories than you can shake a tripod at. After which I was a automotive photographer for Palmer’s Hyundai that rekindled my love for automotives in ways only a gear head will truly understand. Where nowadays when I'm not running with a camera in hand for myself, you can find me at the local auto auction house doing a multitude of jobs. Or bartending major events with an epic team.
So now you know a little about me. So let's get to know each other and see if we can’t make some magic together!

"I have worked with this woman for a year now, and I have seen nothing but pure art come out of every session. Her natural ability to see light, pose models in the most flattering way, and use her equipment to its fullest potential is miraculous. Each and every photo is worth insurmountable praise. The models I've worked with are all wonderful, and the companions are always so helpful and kind. If you want someone to make your memories as beautiful as you really want them to be, enlist this company to captur"
