One of my life dreams has been to retire from my long career in Law Enforcement and become a photographer full time. I have had a passion for photography world since I was a teenager. Yearbook work in high school, developing my own black and white pictures, film in college, to photo contests, the passion to capture God’s creation and freeze moments in time has always been strong.
Nature photography was my first love but after shooting weddings, seniors and families through the years I have grown to love capturing people where they are in their life and the ones they love. I was never able to give my full attention until now and what a blessing it is to combine this passion for photography with working alongside my beautiful daughter.
There is no doubt that God paved the way for me and has me right where I need to be. Besides photography I love spending time with my family (and dogs), being outside, gardening, and running. I know photography is what I should be doing because it is always on my mind. Whether I am driving in the car or running somewhere I am constantly saying-that would be a great place to take pictures or a great place to run.
As long as that spark is alive in me I will be ready to click away.
