About Me As a Photographer…

I’ve loved photography since I was old enough to use a camera. Finding the beauty in everyday moments and bringing connection to people and their memories has kept me an eager and willing photographer all of my life.

I received my first camera when I was 9 years old …it was a Kodak Instamatic, and I can still remember it’s ‘magic’ flashbulb system 💥. In college, I progressed to a Pentax K1000 and marveled at the depth that it gave my photos. For many years after I went from one automatic camera to the next and enjoyed capturing memories, but only rarely did I get a shot that I would call “outstanding.”

In 2009, everything changed when my husband gave me a Nikon D5000 for my birthday. ✨ That was when my interest in photography went to a new level… I took my camera everywhere, read books, took classes, asked questions, and fell in love! My results were good, and they steadily improved as I transitioned from “Automatic” to “Scene” to “Aperture” and finally “Manual” settings.  Taking full control of my camera was the most exciting and technical way to approach a scene/person/event, and it finally gave me the shots that I’d been hoping to get for years. Now my focus is on composition and connection with my subjects – I love portraits, family sessions, events and street photography. I also enjoy some studio product photography!

Today I shoot with a Nikon D850 and I’ve collected an arsenal of prime and zoom lenses. My favorite lens for portraits is my 85mm, and my favorites for travel are my 50mm or 28-300mm zoom. For events, I love my 24-70mm and 70-200 although my 24mm and 50 are pretty great, too. I continue to practice my skills daily, and I have enjoyed posting a new photograph every day on FB and Instagram for the past 2 years! Click on the links below to like and follow me!

Well, that’s a bit about me and my on-going and passionate journey with photography. I wish you joy and connection as you focus on your own life!
