About me

I've always loved photography.  I remember getting my first 110 mm camera when I was probably about 10 years old.  It seemed like I always had a desk drawer with a bunch of old cameras in it.... film cameras, point and shoot, a funky panoramic camera, etc.  I just loved cameras and I was always the one to read the manual from cover to cover.  Fast forward to when I was 30 and my dad and I took a photography class together.  What an amazing thing it was to learn how to actually use a slr camera and see the fun stuff it could do.  This was back when the world worked in a dark room and used chemicals and paper.  Pretty cool stuff.
Things have changed a bit now for me and for photography.  Now I'm a wife and busy mom to three cute kiddos.  I use my love of photography to hold on to the preciousness of childhood.   Luckily my technology has advanced to the world of digital where you can take a ton of pictures on a memory card at 8 frames per second.  And while the speed and quality has vastly improved, it's still about capturing that magical moment in time.   There's nothing like that amazing smile, a cute smirk or an adorable pose to make you melt.  Getting it into a picture is priceless to me.  Hence my love of what photography can do to save those precious moments.
