LaRon J.Every was born and raised in New Orleans,Louisiana. When she was 10 she was first exposed to photography in a department store when she picked up a Hallmark card with a beautiful sunflower. At that moment she said:"I want to take the picture that is on this Hallmark card..." Years went by and she didn't work towards that goal,but in 2005 that all changed. Hurricane Katrina , one of the U.S's worst naturals disasters of all time destroyed her city, her life, her family and all she could think of was, "I don't have a camera." There was so much left to be saved. If she didn't have a ceiling or a place to stay she knew she had to save something; and that's when the fascination began. Flooded houses weren't flowers but they were memories of the past, of something that effected so many and could effect more. Eventually she invested in a camera and has never put it down since, just in case she would once again miss a moment where things would never be the same.One snap of a shutter and she has frozen time, a memory, a moment that would never be the same after it passed. In her camera she is saving moments just the way they were, the way they would never be again. Read Less
