About Me



“ Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph. – Matt Hardy

Alot of people would argue this next statement, but "I really don't like talking about myself, describing myself  :)."  

 
I am a daughter, wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, nana, sister/sister-in-law, aunt and great aunt.  I simply adore photographing my family, my grandkids and just about anyone who will not run from me when they see my camera pointing at them.

I have a pretty large family.  I have a daughter,  a stephdaughter, three brothers and three sisters, 18 nieces and nephews, 5 amazing grandchildren, one great nephew and one great niece.

Missing a couple peeps!!!

Photography is a passion of mine and I truly see everything through a camera lens .  From the beauty of this great country that we live in to the innocence in the eyes of my grandchildren.  Capturing those moments are what I strive for in my photographs.  That special moment, the special look, that special capture that will last a lifetime.


I have the best and most  loving husband anyone could ask for,  who has given me the support  for me to follow my dream (and happens to be my biggest fan).   Great friends many of whom I have photographed through the years and an amazing family.

I truly hope you enjoy looking through my blog.
