I am mother of semi grown boys (26 and 19), wife, business manager, military family, sister, daughter, coffee lover, tequila drinking, potty mouth and sometimes fierce passionate woman. I have always had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. I have always loved photographs, making memories in print and the ability to tell a story with a photo. I want to build on that, push my creative abilities and learn as much as possible. I love looking back on a photograph and instantly it brings back that moment in time, how you felt, what was happening in your life at that moment. It is the ability to document and capture the stories of our lives. Just maybe the ability to hold on to those memories and pass them down to our children and grandchildren. I've always believed that great photographs can capture a bit of our souls and show you who you really are. You can't hide from the camera.
