Photography has given me a creative outlet and, at times, it has been therapeutic and healing.  When I am absorbed in looking through the lens, time stops and nothing else seems to exist.


My husband and I are avid travelers which has given me a wide variety of landscapes and people to photograph.  Many of my images tell a story.  Through the years, my goal has been to shoot with my own vision when capturing scenes and moments.

I have become more interested in trying creative ways to shoot and process images; this is great fun and stretches my imagination and growth while working with the sophisticated post processing tools available today.


I started photography later in life after my youngest son gave me his refurbished digital point and shoot camera.  That began a journey of pursuing digital photography by taking photography classes and workshops with some awesome photographers.  The passion these professionals had for their craft rapidly became contagious.  I learned about "seeing" and taking images that "make my heart sing."  When I consider shooting a subject, I oftentimes find myself feeling the beauty of God's creation where my heart and soul came out, resulting in some of my best photos.
