Read the full Etsy blog post.Photographer Sharon Montrose first picked up a camera at age fifteen in a high school Photo 101 class. Sharon says that when she picked up a camera "it was my breath, I was like I'm alive now." During a time when most most adolescents are confused and searching for themselves Sharon had a passion and drive that gave her clarity. Once her training was done she pursued becoming a professional photographer. After a series of failed attempts shooting head shots, weddings, portraits etc. she finally decided that she needed a break from photography. Continuing to hustle and losing her love for the medium was not an option.
