I am all about people, building strong relationships and savoring each moment I have here on earth.
I believe that creating images for people to share with each other is a gift from above.
I enjoy giving people tangible documentation that life's simple moments happened.
Each image that I frame, has a special reason for being displayed.
All of my landscape and local historical work has meaning that relates to special memories I have shared with my family.
My objective is to preserve memories so people can look back and reflect on what a good life they have.
I operate on the philosophy that there is a reason for everything.
I am a wife, daughter, mother, sister, aunt, niece, friend, former classroom teacher, photo enthusiast, turned photographer! While raising my three daughters, I often found it difficult to find a photography studio that was able to catch the individual "look" of each of my children...... I spent a lot of time, paying for the services of a traditional studio, only to end up setting up the situations, bringing props and advising the photographer how to catch them "in their moment", so to say...After many attempts, I decided to throw in the proverbial towel and never go back to a studio. So what was I to do? I started taking their photos myself. Friends started commenting... They wanted to know who the photographer was and what studio I took them to. The honest answer was.... I was the "photographer" and quite often, my "studio" was... the great outdoors.
