Originally from Seattle, I ditched the rainy city at my first opportunity to become one with the sun in Pensacola, Fl. It was here that my love for all things creative manifested into a passion for all things beautiful. With an Advertising major and Art minor, I focused my educational studies around using my own photography to create advertisements and promotional material. When I left Florida in 2012, I moved to Atlanta to obtain my Masters Degree in Integrated Global Communication with the idea of focusing my energy toward non-profit efforts.
When I was 10 years old, my grandfather gave me my first camera, a simple 35mm film camera for my first photography class. From the day I received it, I knew I would never put it down. For practice, I photographed family and friends.
It wasn’t until college that I found my niche, in the wonderful world of Maternity and Boudoir. I held sessions for friends using a 35mm Pentax film. After a few years I realized that I may have been on to something lucrative. During a meeting of the minds with my best friend, Flourishing Creatives was born and we’ve been full speed ahead ever since.
