sometimes I take photos....
With every ounce possible in my body, I love photography. It has been a big part of my life for almost 5 years, and while it's been an evolving relationship (like any relationship is), I can't imagine ever having a life without also having a camera. I don't shoot many clients these days but I still make an effort to make photos as often as possible whenever inspiration and I have a chance to sit together.

...and sometimes, I write.
When I was in high school, I wanted to go to college to be a writer. Somewhere along the way, that seemed like too ridiculous of an idea so I got a degree in education. While that served me well for 8-years in classrooms, I find humor in the fact that all these years later, I still love writing and it has become a crutch for me to lean on...even when my images fail me.
I feel so very lucky to have written for some amazing websites on topics of photography that I hold near and dear and I've shared some of my favorites below.
