Featured | Interview with Preoccupied Bride


"I realized my sophomore year I didn’t want to be a fine art photographer because I didn’t see a future for myself in the gallery exhibition world."

I'm so honored to be featured on my (new) good friend Maya's blog for Preoccupied Bride! It's always fun to talk to other creatives about my story of chasing my dream to become a photographer because it hasn't been a straight forward or simple path. My goals have changed along the way and I've had to adapt as I go, so it was awesome to share some advice for aspiring photographers and creative entrepreneurs for pursuing their passions!
