I am interested in the narrative of images with a strong focus on the female form and female influences. Through my training in ballet, my southern roots, and classical training using film and large format cameras, I aim for a sense of timelessness in my images. I regularly photograph women, children, architecture, and fashion. I am always looking for unique ways of storytelling, and sharing insight with the viewer into something they might not be familiar.
