“Too often womanhood is defined in a restrictive manner — feminine, soft, and quiet. The aim of this series of photographs is to combat that understanding by presenting womanhood as fluid, loud and unwilling to remain in the background. Womanhood is not defined in a vacuum. Our cultures and worldview shape how we individually understand womanhood, and each of these photos represents a different view of how womanhood can be defined.”

Outside of photography, she loves to write, read and support Ohio sports teams.
