"You don't take a photograph, you make it." -Ansel Adams

Although I had always enjoyed taking pictures, I hadn't really thought of pursuing photography as a career until late into college. The art world has always been familiar to me, so the idea of having an art based career was a given. my first film class in college was what drew me in. Digital photography is fun, but film is a completely different world.

I started my photography business in November of 2011. I came in charging head first, and I am glad to say I'm not turning back.
