An east coast gal at heart, I grew up in Maryland and ventured to school in South Carolina before ending up in Long Beach. I adore nothing more than spending the night in with my husband Jack and our 3 rescue pups: Hootie, Toffee, and Twinkie. I really wish mac & cheese was its own food group. However, I do have a taste for all sorts of cuisines from my travel adventures!
I started my photography journey with a Nikon camera and an abundance of free time as a 16-year-old exchange student in Germany and haven’t stopped hitting the shutter button since. After my year abroad, I had learned a new language and found one of my passions that I’m lucky to now share with so many people to this day!
In college, I lost touch with photography. Coincidently, my next long-term abroad experience, a semester in Singapore, was when I reconnected with it. The only 2 continents I haven’t seen are South America & Antarctica: maybe one day my camera and I will make it there!
Hey Friend! I am so happy you are here
