WOW

THE PHOTO SERIES

TEN YEARS IN THE MAKING

I was eleven years old when I entered Waterford School District’s Reflections Program, my first photography contest. Eager to create, I picked up my dad's Nikon and started shooting. Four photographs from my first photoshoots remain.

Ten years, a Canon camera, and hundreds of thousands of images later, I've recreated these photo to reflect the passionate, tenacious, cat mom I've become. With that, I am so honored to present:

 

WOW: The Photo Series

SELF PORTRAIT

 

These photographs show the difference that a decade of

seeking passion,

hurting deeply,

and rising stronger

has to offer. 

FALL BRANCHES

 

I grew up in a neighborhood of children, spending as much time outdoors as I could  (as I do now, cozied up on my porch every day). As we all grew older, moved away, and started our lives, my friendship with the girl across the street never faded.

 

She taught me patience, motivation, and maturity. A woman that, though only  a month older than me, I’ve looked up to since childhood. She watched me take my first photos outside of my first home, and posed as a subject ten years and ten homes later. 

INSIDE OUT

 

This is Bonnie. Bonnie and her brother Clyde came into my home last year and have taught me unconditional love and loyalty. We’re sort of similiar, Bonnie and I, because she loves to sit still, soaking in the outdoors, dreaming of the day when it takes her away on adventure. 

COLOR MY WORLD

 

From the first day I had the pleasure of calling them neighbor, Allie and Brian have only shown what it means to love each other and the world around them. They are the passion of red and the joy of yellow - the endurance of orange.
