Cheryl is a lover of light and all furry friends. She enjoys helping her clients illustrate their brand and appreciates art direction with creative collaboration.

Born in Detroit, but raised in the south, Cheryl had 10 great years in Brooklyn, New York. While in New York she enjoyed capturing the colorful urban life that surrounded her. She discovered the love of food while photographing new restaurants for New York Magazine. Her escapes from the city included train rides to Montauk or up the Hudson Valley to go fly fishing. Now, back in the south, she finds inspiration in hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains, teaching photography and fishing. She enjoys being at home with her sweet black lab, a wild barn cat and an impressive supply of summer fireflies.
