I have been interested in photography since about the age of 10, when I received my first Polaroid Sun 600 camera. Shortly after that, I began shooting with a Canon AE-1. I'd spend hours in a darkroom printing my own black and white photographs. When I got older, I spent six years as a photographer in the old time portrait studio in the Opryland U.S.A. theme park. Upon returning to college in 2009, I decided to pursue a degree in the field, and graduated with a B.S. in Photography from Middle Tennessee State University in May 2012. Refining my technical competence and visual awareness through a formal education allowed me to achieve a new level of growth in my work.
I'm a native Nashvillian, and my husband Dan and I share our home with our 4 dogs: Eva, Buster, Burton, and Periwinkle.
