In 8th grade, my mom made me enter a pic I took on vacation into a nationwide photo contest..and I won. She claimed that I had "the eye", but it wasn't until 2014 when I got a job for my university as a photographer that I actually believed her.
Since then, I've taken on so many classes, mentors, and experiences that I feel 100% confident to shoot in literally ANY situation. This is what I'll be doing for the rest of my life and I'm SO grateful for all the amazing people, places & experiences it's given me.
It's been a little two years since I've been doing this full time and I wouldn't have it any other way.
