My Journey

I've had a camera in my hands since I was a child, capturing moments spent with friends using my little 110 camera and flash cubes. In eighth grade, my father, another great lover of photography and my biggest cheerleader, gave me his SLR camera and I was hooked. Each time a roll of film was developed it was like Christmas morning! The images were more than pieces of paper, they were tangible memories. It was then I realized the beautiful power of photography.

I began my studio sophomore year of college.  While in college, I shot film and greatly enjoyed my time in the darkroom.  Since graduating, I have embraced the digital world of photography and love it.
