Since I was a little girl, I always remember my Mother having a camera in her hand. I have inherited boxes and boxes of tangible photographs documenting my family's & my journey through life. My Mother captured everything  just as it happened. Real life. Real moments. Real time. Those photographs are priceless. They tell stories and capture emotions that words cannot express. One could say she passed the photography gene to me. I've always needed some form of creativity in my life (i.e., sewing, playing instruments, singing, dancing, painting). The bug bit me as a twelve year old girl scout needing to earn a photography badge and then  again in high school. The feel of film. The darkroom.  A blank piece of photo paper one minute and then a tangible, developed print minutes later. 

For me, photography is about capturing the moments in between the moments. It's capturing love and light from different perspectives. It's printing your photographs and filling your walls full of sweet memories. It's a tangible statement in a visual form. 

A little bit about me...

Patient. confident. humorous. adventurous. spontaneous. outgoing. determined. focused.
