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 near the Mullet river, our purple gingham print sundresses popping against a backdrop of goldenrod. And me with red eyes. When Dad showed me how to use his Kodak Brownie camera, I realized that I preferred being behind the shutter and proceeded to photograph our cats, dogs and creatures by the 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 wanted to become a photographer after I retired. In 2005, my husband and I relocated for his job and I found myself needing a job. I decided to become a portrait photographer. Photographing people was terrifying at first! I studied and practiced lighting and ran my studio for ten years.
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!
