Iâ€™ve been playing with cameras since I was a little girl. I used to steal my momâ€™s camera and use entire rolls of film to photograph my Barbies and stuffed animals. My mom wasnâ€™t thrilled then, but looking back on it now, it explains where my life-long obsession began. Iâ€™ve owned cameras since I was a child, mostly automatic film and instant models, but it wasnâ€™t until high school that I really started exploring the endless photographic possibilities. Since then, my camera hasnâ€™t left my side. My passion for the field expanded while attending Northern Arizona University, where I studied Commercial Photography and Design. My favorite thing about photography is that it encourages me to look beyond what others define as â€˜beautifulâ€™, and has taught me to see beauty in everything. Itâ€™s my life that is truly beautiful; my camera simply allows me to share it with the world.
