My first memory of having a camera was the one my grandfather won for me at an Amusement Park. It used 110 film….I was so excited!
I just loved taking pictures. My grandmother would refer to me as the family photographer. But life gets in the way of our lives sometimes and photography took a back seat for a few years..
Fast forward 40 years…. after my husband's death in 2009 I attended a grief and healing group. I was encouraged to do something I always wanted to do. That was easy; photography. I was at the store the next morning and purchased a camera!
I was immediately drawn to capturing sunrise and sunsets….always looking for Heaven where I knew my husband was. I was in awe !!
Through the lens of my camera I have seen beauty I never knew existed. My heart has become filled with gratitude. I want my viewers to experience what I feel when they look at my images… feel the warmth of a sunrise, hear the sounds of a loon, stare aimlessly at the shooting stars making their way thru the Milky Way.
I then began to ask friends if I could photograph them. I fell in love with the lifestyle aspect; capturing families when they are most connected... being themselves and then bringing that memory to life thru images.
There is a saying that goes something like this; find your passion in life and you have found your purpose…I have done that.. with my camera by my side…
