If you are looking for the PHOTOGRAPHY SCAVENGER HUNT girl... you found her!!  The 2014 SPRING FLING round of the Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt is currently underway. 
Information about the next photography scavenger hunt sign up will be announced on day 10 or reveals from this round. (around the end of May)

I am an interior photographer for a living. Highlighting beauty in everyday homes is a challenge, and my new passion.

There are 2 people in every picture: the subject, and the photographer.  I am a rookie in this world, and the more I find other photographers, the more I realize I have SO much to learn. But I love it... I LOVE it and hope and pray I find a comfy place in this community of inspiring people.

He's pretty much got it all.
