I’m Twyla! I’m a Kansas born biologist turned photographer and educator. I currently reside on the beautiful east coast of Florida with my husband and two little boys. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and the way I see the world with other creatives.
I haven’t always done what I love for a living: photographing effortlessly beautiful sessions, traveling the world teaching other creatives and sharing my knowledge through online courses. Just a few years ago I was a histologist at a pathology lab looking for a creative outlet and wishing I could spend more time traveling and loving on my babies.
Months after my second child was born my husband encouraged me to set my iPhone down and invest in a real camera. I had no idea this would lead to living a creatively fulfilled life traveling the world doing what I love: creating and preserving beautiful memories for others while simultaneously sharing my skill set with other photographers.
“PHOTOGRAPHY FOR ME IS NOT LOOKING, IT’S FEELING. IF YOU CAN’T FEEL WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT, THEN YOU’RE NEVER GOING TO GET OTHERS TO FEEL ANYTHING WHEN THEY LOOK AT YOUR PICTURES.”
