Irish earned her BA of Fine Arts from Brooks Institute of Photography in 2008, after graduation she quit her job in Hollywood and spent time traveling abroad with a photography group. It was during that time she traveled to Nepal and set up a black and white darkroom where they taught the local street kids photography. Irish soon fell in love with seeing the way kids and young adults saw the world based on their life experiences.
After she returned to the U.S., Irish started her own Wedding Photography business to pay the bills (although she soon fell in love with that too), but she never gave up the dream of teaching kids photography. That dream became a reality in 2012 when she joined the Fusion family as Photography Instructor. Aside from teaching photography and photographing weddings Irish likes to travel, figure skate and dream about returning to Romania and Eastern Europe to continue photographing in Gypsy camps.
