Hey guys! Let me tell you a little about myself!

My parents gave me my very first camera when I was twelve years old. I instantly fell in love with it and spent a lot of time outside taking pictures of my animals and the country side that we lived on in Bristow, Oklahoma.

When I was in high school I immersed myself in art classes so that I could work on my creativity. I have a large collection of vintage film cameras, most of which belonged to my grandpa.

I absoluty love dogs! More specifically my miniature schnauzer O’Malley. Before you ask, yes he’s named after THAT O’Malley from Greys Anatomy. We love to go on walks to gather and he is my lap warmer while I’m editing photos!

My love to be behind the camera pushed me to pursue a photographic arts degree at The University of Central Oklahoma. Since then, I have found a love and passion for this field and I can’t wait to experience It with you!
