Where does one start? Family! I love my family and they are my everything. I have five wonderful children, 3 boys and 2 girls, and a hard-working, supportive husband. Formally trained and licensed as an Architect and Graphic Designer, I needed a way to express my creativity when family obligations required me to leave my career. I turned to photography to fulfill my creative needs and, more importantly, as a way of staying close with my husband when he was serving our country overseas. Sending him pictures of my youngest boy's daily shenanigans helped us remain connected – a connection that I still cherish. Four children and more than ten years later, my love for the art has grown to a point that I want to do it full-time. I can't imagine doing anything else. Through my camera, I hope to help make similar, meaningful connections with others that last for many years to come.
