I first started dreaming up the idea for my shop a few months after I got married... I wasn't working and I found all that extra time was giving my brain a chance to be creative and dream a little. I fell in love with the idea of taking some of my photography and making it available to people like me who couldn't afford to pay a fortune for original art but still loved to support small businesses.

My dad raised me to think like an entrepreneur and I think all his constant refrains of "work for yourself" and "be number one" finally started percolating in my system. I found I couldn't sleep at night because my brain was so busy coming up with ideas...and so The Parrish House Photos was born.

In July 2010, I started out selling in some local markets and, while I discovered it wasn't the best venues for my work (which focused mainly on international travel photography instead of local places), the lessons I learned and the feedback I received were huge confidence boosters for me.

Since I'd taught myself everything I knew about photography, the learning curve to fine art printing and marketing was huge! Thankfully, Society6 handles all that for me now and I can focus on continually improving my art.

I've made lots of mistakes along the way (some big, some small), but I'm so proud of where I'm at and where I'm heading!
