Get to know your Instructor:

"My name is Geniann Elliott, I was raised in the PNW, but have lived in Central North Carolina for close to 15 years now! I'm a wife, Mom to 2 kids that are way cooler than I am (and they're only 7 & 3), I love roller coasters, mint chocolate chip ice cream, dancing, and I am the biggest closet nerd around: Star Wars, GOT, LOTR, Harry Potter, Marvel, I love them all! Photography grounds me, and gives me an outlet to be creative and at least while I am creating photographs, remember what it's like to see the world as a magical and beautiful place. If I am not with my own children, I am happiest when I am snuggling and photographing newborns, and shooting fine art child & maternity portraits.

When I first began my photography career 8 years ago, it became extremely obvious that this was not a field where you could "chat at the water cooler", have friends who understood your work-life struggles, or who cared if you swam or sank, until i stumbled across a few gems and they changed my outlook on what this industry could be. I am one of the most optimistic individuals you may ever meet, and I believe that a little kindness could change the world...I am so grateful to have become a part of the Summerana team! It only takes a few moments to see just how genuinely caring this community is and that they truly want to see you shine!

I am so excited to share my experience and knowledge with you all, along with the other amazing Resident instructors, and watch you all accomplish amazing things!!"
