Many years ago, my family embarked on the adventure of a lifetime, trading in a predictable suburban life for one on a Caribbean island. I was compelled to capture this experience in photographs, and as a result, my life has been forever changed. I love nothing more than using a camera to document my family's everyday and the beauty that surrounds us. Life has since taken us to Arkansas by way of Ohio, and there are days that I especially miss water with no end in sight or friends gathering on a beach. Or I miss the closeness of family and childhood memories set against North Carolina dogwoods blooming in the spring or Iowa fireflies glowing over summer cornfields. So on any ordinary day, I can visit those dear, faraway places and bygone moments, made timeless in a rectangle that I can hold in my hands and soak in with my eyes. That is the magic of photography that I love.  

I am most grateful to my sons, who are my inspirations and uncooperative models; my husband, who encourages me to do what I love; and God, who creates the gift of each beautiful day. 

Thank you for stopping by.
