First things first...
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE ENCOURAGED AND INSPIRED ME, YOU ARE THE REASON I LOVE MY JOB SOOOO MUCH!!!
As a photographer, I'm inspired by my grandfather, a hobbyist photographer, who has been gone several years now.
He won award after award including cameras and straps, etc. many times using photos of me that he had taken.
I always had an interest in photography, so, he taught me all he could and I used what I have learned from him and many others now.
I inherited all of his equipment and use it along with the newest digital equipment available.
I can remember having a camera in my hand and using it as early as two years of age.
In 1991 I began photographing children, weddings, graduates, and much more as favors for friends and family. I have always had the desire to make photography not just my passionate hobby, but my life.
I started my professional photography business in 2005. I have used the artistic talents I have been blessed with by capturing countless children, families, graduates, and weddings including locations in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, California, Maryland, Cancun, and more. I know that God has clearly answered my prayers.
I am married to my best friend and love of my life, Tom. We travel the world scuba diving to great depths and capturing stunning underwater images that I never could have imagined without his passion for adventure.
We have four beautiful and amazing children:
ROWDI-26 yrs my swift breeze
CODIAC-15 yrs my steady trickling stream
DAISY-13 yrs my beautiful, constantly moving snowflake
Sienna-11 yrs my compassionate, artistic and outgoing bonus child. I love to capture them in photos.
OH! they love it, too!!!
Here it is in a nutshell, I love my life!!!
PHOTOGRAPHY is my passion, my FAMILY is my inspiration, and my GOALS reach the highest mountain and the deepest ocean...
Keep Clicking and Success to you all,
