Hi! I'm Audrey, a 23-year-old photographer from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I am passionate about life, and I want to tell its story. 

WHERE I STARTED

It all began when I was working as a waitress at a local restaurant. It was my junior year of college, and I was thinking about what I wanted to do after graduation. I had always loved photography, but I was too nervous to try it. One day, my good friend of mine said she was in need of a photography intern. I had been searching for a sign, so I applied and got the position. The next day, I bought a camera, and the rest is history. 

Pursuing something creative can be scary. I still get nervous before I post a new photo online. When you work hard and put your whole heart into something, you want everyone else to love it as much as you do. Despite my initial hesitation, I have found that I am supported by an amazing community of people. I have been overwhelmed with the kind words and encouragement I have received. I challenge you to try something new despite your worries about what others may think. If you have the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone, I encourage you to do it. You may discover pieces of yourself you never knew existed!
