Hi! I’m McKenzie Lyman. I was born and raised in Texas but have found myself in Rexburg, Idaho at Brigham Young University – Idaho for my education. I love it here, but hate the cold!
I’m 21 years old and this is my 4th semester in Idaho. I got back 4 months ago from being a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Juiz de Fora, Brazil and miss it every day!
I’m excited to learn more about photography and improve my skills, which are pretty nonexistent. I am more familiar with editing and am looking forward to brushing up those skills as well. I don’t have much experience with photography, but I enjoy taking pictures when I have a camera on me!
My past photos happen to all be from Brazil because of the beauty I found there. All the edits I made we small, only adjusting tone, color, and contrast. They were all either taken in Itatiaia, Varginha, or Teresópolis. Here are my favorites!
