GENESIS SANDOVAL

I feel confident most of the time, maybe that's why it comes naturally to me but when I start to feel unsure of what I'm doing, I give myself a pep talk and lots of self love.

I've always been small so that was a big issue for me because nothing fit or looked right and it messed with my mind a bit but as I got older, I realized that being small has way more pros than cons. I was so insecure being in front of the camera at first because I never liked how I looked in pictures. I opted to be behind the lens until I got tired of never having pictures of myself that I actually liked so I made it my goal to actually try to look good by finding my light and standing up straight. Still unsatisfied with the results, I started taking self portraits to practice naked, alone in my room to find my angles and that's where I really connected with the camera.

I love fashion shoots! I definitely feel most comfortable wearing anything that fits, whether it be baggy or tight, it has to adorn my body one way or another. My favourites for shoots are big flowy dresses. They are so fun to play with!

I prefer outdoor shoots because I feel more comfortable interacting with nature and such. As for the attention I get, it doesn't really bother me as long as everyone is respectful and behaves. One of the most challenging aspects of my work but one that I am truly grateful for is: My perseverance and everyone beside me supporting my goals and rooting me on.

I'm not an optimistic person but I know that if I try hard enough pursuing what I want in life without hurting myself or others, great things will happen.
