Words from the Artist
“I started off doing a lot of nature photography. I love being outside when the weather is nice. I am fascinated by the lovely world which can be found in the simplest of everyday life – the details of a butterfly wing, the glimmer in a bee’s wings, the softness of a flower petal. I started having my photos in a few galleries around town, and then people started asking me to do more portrait work. I work with children for a living, and doing photos for families was fun. Before I knew it, I was doing every type of portrait photography. I have a son and daughter, and I enjoy doing photography on the side as a hobby as well as being a full-time mommy and working full-time outside the home. I feel as though my style is rather casual. I enjoy taking more candid photos rather than posed pictures. I edit photos, but I don’t overly abuse photoshopping. Pictures are often a way to capture memories, and I think it is important to show people for who they are without covering up flaws and imperfections to the point of being unrecognizable. People have often told me that I help to make them feel comfortable and relaxed..that they have fun during a photoshoot and that the pictures make them feel beautiful. Every photo is a work of art. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to bring this type of beauty into the world.”
