It’s a difficult thing….writing about yourself. I sat down one night with a pen and paper and began jotting basic things down about me. How I’m a sailor, a daughter, a neighbor, a friend, a Photographer. I then realized everything you really want to know about me is written in my photography. If you haven’t gone through my galleries, go take a peak and then come back here.
When you look at my photos, I want you to see the connections and the true essence of a family. I fill up when parents or newlyweds cry after seeing their photos for the first time. I love watching families grow and seeing their children year after year. I love children….oh how I love children and their little feet, giggley smiles, intense gazes, shy glances and their innocent grins.
When you look at my photos, I want you to see the underlying essence of life – the family ties, the sentiments, the devotion, the laughter, the love. I do this because time is fleeting, because children grow up so quickly, because we change, because we want to remember, because photos stir the soul, because life, well, because life is beautiful!
