My passion for photography took root in the 2nd grade as I watched nature films. Each one swept me away, magically mesmerizing and enticing me into the wild scene. Time stood still.
As the oldest of 7 children, I saw myself as responsible and often ask to use my Mom’s Brownie camera. With few exceptions, the answer was NO.
In the 7th grade, I bought my first camera, a Polaroid Swing Camera with babysitting money. That summer, we took a vacation to my grandpa’s farm in Oklahoma, where I photographed my family, and the farm house. I held my breath for nearly 3 minutes as the 1st image of the farm house, developed before my eyes. I could barely wait to pull the backing off the Polaroid image. Here it was, in my hand, the picture of the farmhouse with dappled light from the overhanging trees. That scene, that landscape, was THE most beautiful black and white picture I had ever seen. I was captivated by the light, the magic, and I was hooked. Photography had seduced me; and there went the babysitting money!
After graduate school, I lived my dream, fulfilling my photographic passion through teaching and photographing nature and wildlife. My focus changed through necessity and I worked for other companies for 10 years, all the while still doing photography. 8 years ago, an opportunity arose and I returned full time to commercial photography, strengthening and fine tuning my skills, business focus, and direction. I’ve created a niche I love, which benefits business owners and helps them “Stand OUT in the Sea of Competition."
I grow my business through referrals, and belong to the WOMBATs BNI chapter of Business Network International and previously to NAWBO-OC, the National Association of Women Business Owners.
