Former Digital Trends Contributor

Hillary never planned on becoming a photographer—and then she was handed a camera at her first writing job and she's been writing with one hand and shooting with the other ever since. At Hillary K Photography, she works as a wedding and portrait photographer. When she's not writing or shooting, she's trying to keep up with two kids, collecting film cameras, unplugging outdoors, reading or traveling.
