The Shot that started it all

The year was 2000 and I was a proud new momma of a beautiful baby girl. One day, when she was only a few weeks old I took some shots of my sleeping babe at a friend’s house with a roll of Kodak black & white film. A few day passed by and I went to the lab to retrieve my prints and right then and there, I was hooked! Now, naturally I am biased in thinking that my daughter was the most beautiful in the world (I still think so!), but this one image pulled at my heart strings so much that I knew I had to have more. And so, as the days, months and years passed by I began this wonderful journey into the world of photography by attending every work shop, lecture and meeting I could drive to. If there was a book on Amazon that I could afford, it was mine. Little by little I began to hone in on my new craft, striving to master all that I could about the art of photography and how to recreate beautiful images, purposefully, intentionally and with an artistic flair.  I hope you enjoy looking at my imagery as much as I enjoy taking them and it is my true wish that I will find you in front of my lens too! See ya soon!
