I am just a regular everyday person. I am a daughter, a wife, and a mom. I work 8-5, I love God, my family, friends, animals and photography. I have always taken pictures for as long as I can remember. I always had a camera with me, taking pictures at that time of my family, friends, vacations, holidays and of all kinds of animals. Then after I had children, I took zillions of photos of them as they were growing up and I still do as we add to our family with their significant others and now the grandbabies. Photography to me is a way to journal life. Giving us a way to see those that are no longer with us or those who aren't directly in our lives. Photography allows us to see how things change over time and sometimes how they stay the same. God has given us a ton of beautiful subjects to capture everyday. Each person has their own unique idea of what art is and what they themselves like. In staying true to who we are and looking for the many wonderful arenas of beauty, hopefully we can capture shots that please us, remind us and teach us to appreciate everyday the joy, the wonder, the heartache... LIFE!.
