I am a 18 year old girl who has been interested in nature and photography since the age of 5 when I would disappear in our woods before my parents were awake to take pictures. Having usurped my mother's Olympus camera, I would spend hours on our property photographing the birds, snakes and whatever else I could find during my outdoor adventures. So far, I have gone through 6 different cameras and currently am shooting with a Canon 7D and Canon 100-400mm lens. I was published in my first national magazine at the age of 7 after winning Ranger Rick's photo contest and since that time, I have won more than 40 photo contests, both local and worldwide. I had the honor of being awarded the TPOTY Young Travel Photographer of the Year in 2016 with a series of fox photographs that were taken in New Jersey. In 2014 I won second place in the Big Picture with a shot of two Great Blue Herons. My goal is to combine my love for photography and nature into a life-long profession. Thanks for visiting my website and I hope you enjoy my images.
