a photographic journey

Natchitoches, Louisiana is one of the most unique communities in the entire country. The true essence of Louisiana's rich heritage seems to beautifully coalesce in this charming town. Good food, friendly faces, toe-tapping music, and fascinating history are easy to find.
While at Northwestern State University I had the privilege of meeting some of the most unique people who shared their memories of Natchitoches and helped me create my own.
Through my hobby of photography, I have attempted to capture the natural beauty of Louisiana's oldest town.
