Hey there. I'm Eve.

I've always been a story-teller, long before I picked up a camera and pen. It all started with me pestering my grandparents for stories and keeping numerous diaries as a kid. I love sharing stories as much as I enjoy listening to them. Capturing emotions is one of the most important parts of my work, and I aspire to be a creator with content that people can connect with.
