                            Portrait by Ivona Kostrya

I am a photographer and teacher in Panama City, on Florida's beautiful Gulf Coast. I approach image-making with an eye for life's small details.

I first studied creative writing at Florida State University, and then went on to receive an MFA in photography at the University of Memphis. I delight in exploring new places and people with my camera. I find portraiture most fulfilling and am always available for creative portraits in the Panama City area.

In January 2017 my husband and I opened The Light Room in downtown Panama City. The Light Room is a gallery, studio space, and classroom for photographers. Please stop by for an exhibit, a class or just to say hello!
