My mom made photographs as a hobby and is responsible for introducing me to this art form. I watched her find the perfect exposure for that Christmas card of the Alamo, saw her makeshift portrait backgrounds, and learn how to process film in a darkroom. She told me that one day I will “see the light” all around me and will start taking pictures with my eyes.

It happened in 2007…

when I was a military spouse trying to figure out how I could contribute to the world and still be able to move every two years or so. I was given a Nikon D200 with a kit lens (18-200mm) and speed-light. This propelled me into photography and I have been on the special journey of creating photographs ever since.
