I am a simple, down to earth, fun loving person. I have worked in the dental field as a dental hygienist for the past 18 years, helping people have healthy beautiful smiles. I got interested in photography when I was in the fifth grade. We learned about how an image was made in the camera and how to bring it to life in the dark room. I was hooked and have tried to record every event that has happened in my life since that time. Recently I decided to take that interest and develop it into a business. Being behind the camera is more than just snapping a photo in time for me; it is about the stories and relationships in those photos.
I am the oldest in my family so millions of photos were taken of me when I was younger and I just love to take them out and look through them and remember those times. Notice I say I like to take them out and look at them. I have and use a digital camera now, but I am still a huge fan of the printed photograph. Why you ask.........because I can take it out anywhere at any time and display it. I don't have to worry about them being deleted, if my device that is holding is charged; worry if that device will be stolen and so on. I keep digital backups, but I print and display my photos in my house and my office.
I have two wonderful 4 legged children, Isabelle and Lilly. They are the loves of my life. Isabelle is an easy going girl. She loves to chase anything you will throw for her, but her real passion is FOOD and belly rubs, in that order. Lilly is the boss, even though she is the smaller of the two. She isn't going to chase anything except Isabelle! Her passion is hiding Isabelle's bones and belly rubs. They both can wag their tails fast enough to cause a wind storm.
I have a wonderful large family.... 2 parents, 3 brothers, 3 sister-in-laws, 4 nephews and 2 nieces, 2 4 legged nephews and 2 4 legged nieces, 1 turtle nephew..... and a partridge in a pear tree. (Ha!Ha!)
