biggest lesson or piece of advice you want to share:

Shoot Often.  It is only when photographing regularly that your confidence grows and your style evolves.

a location you couldn’t do without:

I photograph often a local family farm.  They have a sugar shack in the spring, blueberries and sunflowers in the summer, pumpkins and a corn maze in the fall, and Christmas trees in the winter.  I love a location with lots of variety, especially one that changes year round.

photographers and artists that inspire you:

Meredith Novario, Jennifer Nobriga, and Velvet Owl Photography (mostly CM of course!)
