What’s Your Major?
Photography, and possibly a minor in fashion photography or business. 
 
Interests and Hobbies?
Photography! Also, fashion, coffee-drinking, telling myself I will work out and then taking a nap.
 
How would you describe your style of photography?
I want to say unique, because I feel like all of my shoots give off a different vibe and mood. This can sometimes be considered bad for a photographer, because you want all of your photos to have a similar look to them, so people can recognize which photos are yours. I feel like my photos differ in a good way though… Unique, moody, and adventurous are words that come to mind. 
 
If you had the opportunity to photograph anyone or anything, who/what would it be and why?
That’s so hard!!! OBAMA! I wish Obama were my dad. 
 
How has art influenced or enriched your life?
I’ve loved art ever since I was little, and I’ve taken art classes my entire life. It’s always had such a huge impact on my life, and I feel like every major decision I’ve made has been based on something to do with art. I met my boyfriend in an art class in high school, and we’ve been together ever since. He was the one that encouraged me to apply to SCAD, and I ended up getting in, which is so crazy and exciting. I moved 2,000 miles away, with my boyfriend, for art. It seemed really crazy to do, especially where I’m from, since no one ever leaves Utah for college, let alone to go to art school. But it’s made my life 1000x better and I have no regrets.
