Rebecca Barnett Stone was born and raised in Coral Springs, Fla.

She fell in love with the camera in high school when she took her first class in black and white photography. Her love of people, animals and pictures grew exponentially over the next several years as she learned more and more about the art, and continues to grow.

Rebecca has interned at the Sun-Sentinel in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa. and The Roanoke Times in Roanoke, Va.

She graduated with a degree in photojournalism from Western Kentucky University in May 2011, and moved to Roanoke the day after graduation to start her dream job as a staff photographer at The Roanoke Times.

After three (freezing) winters in Virginia, Rebecca moved (with her husband, horse, dog and cats) back home to be closer to her family, and lives in Boca Raton, where it is always warm.
