Hello! My name is Kaitlin. Welcome to my blog.
This is a space that discusses analog photography, digital photography, journalism, writing,
and anything else I feel that relates to any of the above.

I grew up in Baltimore City and have lived here most of my life. It’s the type of city that you never really escape no matter where you end up living. I attended Urbana High School, a high school just outside of Frederick, MD, for four years before I moved back closer to home to start studying journalism at Towson University. I took my first photojournalism class as an elective and quickly fell in love with visually documenting the life around me. I took a photo course in high school but it wasn’t until college that I really began to pursue it as a career (thanks Monica Lopossay) I love writing but to me the story just isn’t complete without visuals; sometimes stories don’t even need words. I view photography as another instinct, another sense and another extension of my body. It’s just something I do, like breathing or eating Chipotle.
I graduated Towson University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Mass Communication in Journalism and New Media in Spring 2014 and with my Master’s in Professional Writing with a concentration in journalistic writing in the Spring of 2016. I photo-interned for The Baltimore Sun in 2013. I’ve been published in The Baltimore Sun, BBJ, Baltimore Magazine, USA Today, LA Times, Orlando Sentinel, Jewish Times, The Towerlight, Getty Images and Anadolu Agency among others.
