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". After I retired, I decided to turn that passion into a second career and am now a serious, creative photographer specializing in fine art and real estate photography. I 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."
