I'm fortunate enough to be able to get paid to do what I actually went to college for and to do what I love. My nearly 8 years with the National Cheerleaders Association and the National Dance Alliance has taken me to all corners of the country, even to London -- many of those places I probably would never have the opportunity nor ability to visit on my own. I'm also fortunate enough that I'm allowed to express myself through my work, to photograph what speaks to me and what moves me. I'm fortunate enough that it seems like some people like to see those kinds of photographs because I'm still around capturing them. These are some of my favorites from this past year documenting both camps and competitions for NCA & NDA.
