"She is a tremendous photographer-bottom line: She sees."

Step Into the Circle: Writers in Modern Appalachia
I took that camera with me on my first airplane ride and when I landed in California I took roll after roll of the Golden Gate Bridge, seals, the Disney store, pigeons, and anything that moved me.
I remember opening the prints from Half-Hour Photo and seeing all of my visions on long, panoramic paper. I was enchanted.
Now, almost 25 years later I've cultivated that natural curiosity through study and lots of practice. Although I will always be a lifelong student of photography, I'm excited to offer my creative take on what photos can be.
I've been taking photos since my parents bought me a panoramic camera in fifth grade.
