  • Hi there! Give us a lil background on who you are & what your passion is.

    Hello!! I grew up in a really small town in South Georgia and basically lived the life of a typical country song. I always wanted to escape the South and go to a big city so after graduating from high school I went to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY to study painting. I just recently transferred to the University of Texas in Austin where I am majoring in textiles and apparel. I love anything creative but mostly focus on art, fashion design, and have recently started modeling. I am passionate about anything that makes the world a more beautiful place. Read more

  • Hi there! Give us a brief summary of who you are & what you do.

    Hey hey I’m Bethany! Im 22 years old, I live in Central Texas. I'm a part time makeup enthusiast, and a full time photographer! I actually stumbled upon photography by accident when I was 13. Both of my parents were photographers so we always had a camera lying around the house. One day my best friend, Meagan, and I wanted to go out and take photos in the back yard, just for fun. My mom showed me how to properly use a camera, and every since that day I haven’t been able to put it down!
