On Sunday mornings when my sisters and I were all dolled up, having slept on pink curlers the night before, my dad would say "It’s time for pictures!" Immediately I would start crying. Our property had such beauty and he would choose the perfect location, our purple gingham print sundresses popping against a backdrop of goldenrod (See photo he took of my sister below). And me with red eyes. When Dad showed me how to use his Kodak Brownie camera, I realized--also like being behind the microphone in radio--that I preferred being behind the shutter and proceeded to photograph our cats, dogs and creatures of the Mullett River.
During my career in broadcasting, I advanced beyond anything I’d ever dreamed. But being a marketing manager at a large media center was not who I was... I decided to become a photographer after I retired. In 2005, my husband and I relocated for his job and I found myself needing employment. I decided to become a portrait photographer, so I studied with some of the best. I'm proud of the business headshots and personal portraits I created during that ten year period, as well as the design and marketing pieces for small, woman-owned businesses.
Luckily, I am now back to photography as a passion. Thank you for visiting my galleries. Feel free to contact me with any questions or if there is something specific you are seeking. Enjoy!
