Another Photo Class Project

Another project for photography, we had to make up our own series. And my series was “Flowers.” And yeah, it seems boring, because who wants to see another series of flowers…but my photos have a deeper meaning. So keep your mind open.

About Me

I started this blog in order to express myself and show the world my real passion in life. I want to show the people who think their dreams are too far-fetched that it really is possible to have your dreams come true. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve wanted to be a famous photographer. And yeah, I know, that seems a little unlikely – a famous photographer? No one ever knows about the ones behind those amazing photos you see in magazines, but I want to change that. I want to show the world a different view of life – I want to change how people see things in everyday life.

My future plans
Right now, I’m still in high school, but after I graduate, I want to go to college for Photography. I’m really not sure exactly where I want to go to college yet, but in the next few months, I’ll be figuring that out. For now, I’m taking photography classes, and make pictures all the time outside of school. I love to go out with my friends and make pictures. I am always up for people wanting to hire me to make pictures around town.

Who is this site for
This blog is for the ones who want to explore. The ones who are bit quirky. The ones who view the world from a different perspective. The ones who don’t want to sit at a desk from 9-5. The ones who see the beauty in the little things in life. The unconventional ones. The ones who want to live life on their own terms.
