I love taking pictures, reading in the bathtub, watching old Marilyn Monroe movies and spending time with my dog, Alpha. I would rather spend a quiet evening at home cuddled on the couch with my boyfriend than going out for a night on the town, and I find people watching more interesting than watching television.
For me, photography is a creative outlet to capture a moment in someone's life. I love surprising myself with the kind of intimate moments and truths I can capture with the camera. I'd rather be behind the lens than in front of it. My favorite things to photograph are children and babies, pets, and engaged couples.
I graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2009 with a journalism degree and my background in photojournalism has allowed me to develop an eye for capturing the truth in an image. I'm also going back to UK for a a teaching degree fall 2011 and I have had extensive experience working with children and am certified in early childhood education.
