Growing up in a rural, Oklahoma town, mountainous landscapes always seemed a bit mystical to me. I moved to Colorado in 2017 after college and quickly became obsessed with the Rocky Mountains.

I purchased my first camera as a way to document these beautiful landscapes that I was visiting every weekend. Whether I was going on an afternoon hike, an overnight backpacking trip, or an exhausting day spent trudging up and down a 14,000 foot peak, I felt the urge to document and share these beautiful scenes that I was surrounded by.

In doing this, I became obsessed with the entire process of photography: the outcome of different camera settings, lighting, the editing process. I felt as if I had discovered the creative outlet that I had been unknowingly craving up until that point.

I feel extremely lucky that I am able to spend my time surrounded by these landscapes. I try to never take it for granted, as I know many people rarely get to experience these locations. Through photography, I strive for each image to depict the feelings that I experienced while standing in that scene.
