Photography has always been a passion of mine, ever since I received my first camera at the age of 11. In 2000 I decided to pursue my passion and work as a photographer for a living. Mostly I shoot portraiture, but have always enjoyed and still do enjoy shooting landscapes, nature, travel and still life. My style of shooting is very relaxed because I prefer the candid over the posed. When I shoot nature or landscapes, I don't necessarily go "looking" for something to shoot, per se. What I want to shoot presents itself to me. The subject will determine whether I process my images in color or black and white. Black and white tends to tell more of a story, but color shows the natural beauty and boundless colors in nature. I feel that my photography embodies my personality. You can see the sentiment and/or happiness in my images because I look for the beauty in things, not the sorrow or plight. Not that sorrow can't have a type of beauty in them, it's just not something that I do. My main focus is to share my feelings through photography and perhaps positively affect those viewing it.
As for me personally, I am a married mother of one. I have been happily married since 1999 & had my son in 2005. Even with all of my favorite subjects to photograph, my son is my most favorite and I think he likes it too.
