From July 2017 - May 2019, I was been the Assistant Photo Editor at Family Circle magazine. Within the 2-person photo team, creative opportunities and responsibilities included: brainstorming how to visualize stories with the art team, directing smaller photo shoots, creating videos and gifs for Instagram and web; finding existing images to license via stock sites, direct photographer inquiries, and Instagram scrolling. Here are some of my proudest creative moments at Family Circle.
