Santorini, Greece. 2013

Twenty years from now you will be disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
— Mark Twain

Kristen Jerkins is a self-taught photographer hailing from a small town in South Alabama. Her passion for photography developed at a young age, along with her other passions for sports and traveling.
