Jada Parrish

Co-Owner / Photographer

I love to travel. I love to take pictures. I love art. I love my golden retriever. I love to feel the wind in my hair --- and that is pretty much me in a nutshell.

I took my first photo class when I was 15 and became obsessed almost instantly. For me photography was like magic. I loved being able to create my own reality, my own world through the viewfinder. I used to make my family and friends (especially my little sister) do such crazy things just so I could get the perfect shot.

I graduated from the University of Virginia with degrees in Studio Art with a concentration in Photography and Media Studies. During my time at UVA I learned everything I could about photography. I experimented with numerous photographic processes such as palladium, cyanotype, and salt prints. I became well versed in everything from 35mm to 4 x 5 viewfinder cameras. I took numerous classes studying composition. I learned photography from the inside out and am so lucky that I get to wake up every morning and do something I love with my best friend by my side.
