I first developed a love of photography from my father, who was rarely seen without a camera in his hand. As a young girl, I traveled frequently with my family throughout the Southern United States; it was on those trips that I first began taking pictures with a simple point and shoot camera, then later upgraded to a Minolta SLR.
My photography hobby turned into a serious passion when I was in my late 20s, but by that time, I was firmly entrenched in "corporate America". Since retiring in 2015, however, I have upgraded my gear and turned that passion into a serious hobby. I specialize in creative, travel, and real estate photography and enjoy shooting everything from scenic landscapes to abandoned buildings, rich, textured HDR images and gritty black and whites.
I've called the Atlanta area home for most of my life, but I love to travel and am happiest out and about with my camera. I think Robert Adams said it best: "No place is boring if you've had a good night's sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film."
