PAWTUCKET â€” Brittany Leigh Gomes has had an affinity â€” and eye â€” for photography since she was just a young girl growing up in Pawtucket.
â€śI have loved photography for as long as I can remember,â€ť said the 26-year-old Gomes. â€śMy first camera was a Fisher-Price camera when I was a toddler and I have been upgrading ever since.
