When did your passion about photography start?

My dad has always been interested in photography and, since I love my dad, I adopted his hobby as well. My interest really peaked a few years ago when I began collecting vintage items. I thought they were so pretty and full of character and I began photographing them: I would set up a few objects so they appeared visually appealing and snap some photos. “dear machine” has developed from that little project.

What inspires you in your photography is:

I’m inspired by all of the visual arts. There are some fabulous photographers on Etsy that have inspired me quite a bit, such as Elle Moss, Lolas Room, & Abby Try Again. I also love perusing blogs based on craft, design, fashion and art.

What do you most love shooting?

Vintage objects, food, my kitties & my nephew.

Define your photography in three words.

delicate, whimsical, feminine

thank you so much Halivah, your work is simply beautiful!
