Well the day is finally here. Saturday is GRADUATION DAY!!!! I will be moving back to Baton Rouge next week and accepting clients. If you are looking for unique images for yourself, family, children, or wedding please contact me and we can set something up. I’m posting some of my images from my Senior Exhibition below. The title of my series is American Heroes. I took environmental portraits of our service men and women. I got to meet some amazing people. Please help me to honor these men and women who have served our country.
The series American Heroes started with my neighbor, Mr. Harry. As a young girl I would visit him and his wife and he would tell stories about fighting in World War Two. The stories became more meaningful as I grew older. This exhibition is my way of honoring the men and women who have served in the military. American Heroes is a mixture of photographs and audio recordings of the stories they have shared with me ranging from why they joined the military, to what they did or did not like about it, or what they wish they could forget.

In closing I want to say thank you to all the service men and women and their families who sacrifice themselves everyday for my freedom. I am forever grateful.
