TIFFANI JONES

Tiffani Jones

Growing up, I could never get lost in the wonder of a storybook. Then, one day, I realized I could let my mind imagine a wondrous story through imagery. Photography gives me a tangible voice with my audience. After a wonderful 15 year nursing career, I left the art of nursing for the art of creating. I am a life long Lakelander where I am raising 3 energetic children with me husband.
