I first fell in love with photography as a child while snapping photos with my grandma’s polaroid camera. I loved the click of the camera and reeling sound as it spit out the film. It was like magic watching the image slowly develop into a clear and colorful photograph.
In high school, I took a photography class and again was in awe of the magic of developing film in the darkroom.
When nearing high school graduation, I had many limiting beliefs that I couldn’t “make it” as a photographer, so I decided to get a “real” degree and trained to become a physical therapy assistant. After college graduation, I began working as a PTA, but continued to grow my love and skills in photography.
