Writing a bio about yourself is never easy, but I will admit I have had a very blessed life with so many things I’m proud of.
One of those is opening a photography studio when I was only 21 years old. I wrote up a business plan, talked to my family about it, went to the bank and they gave me a loan. One part of my brain says “Wow, were they crazy?! Who gives a 21-year-old kid a loan?” but another little voice says “Hey girl! You deserved it! They knew you were good! They knew you were special. Be thankful!” Which I am.
I love teaching and helping other photographers, both locally and across the nation. In 2013, the Professional Photographers of America awarded me my Craftsman Degree for teaching and mentoring.
