Portrait by Nick Perry

I grew up in the small town of Westminster, South Carolina. It's the sort of place you miss on the map, you blink and you've past it. I fell in love with it's southern charm and slow country life. I spent my time riding horses, hiking, and finding the perfect swimming holes in the summer.

I remember my mother giving me disposable cameras as a child. I'd photograph everything. I eventually began to do landscape and nature photography. Later I'd dabble in portraiture where eventually my heart settled on that and more commercial work.

When people ask me what my hobbies are, I immediately say "well I'm a photographer". It is my true passion in life but there are other things I do. If the weather is nice, you can find me outside hiking, getting lost in the mountains, or reading near the river . My best trail partner is my husky who is my entire world.

I gather a lot of inspiration from southern lifestyle and nature. I love lace, delicate things, and anything vintage.
