This would lead her down a path to becoming a photographer for the White House in 1993, where she eventually became the Director of White House Photography in 1999, and the first African American and first woman to fill that role.
Prior to her time at the White House, Sharon began her career as a freelance photographer and went on to work for the Associated Press, the Washington Post, and the Smithsonian Institute, to name a few, where she covered news, politics, and cultural events.
