Hi, I’m Dara, the founder of The Southern Thing – your source for inspiration for everyday life! Since launching in 2013, The Southern Thing has quickly grown as a place of community where I combine my passion for professional photography and writing to connect with my readers through authentic storytelling. I enjoy sharing personal stories, recipes, beauty and style tips, home decor, and documenting my travels. I'm a full-time professional content creator and love partnering with brands on campaigns that organically fit into my lifestyle! The goal is to always connect, share, and inspire through organic storytelling and professional high-res imagery.
