I've been taking photographs since I was a kid. My dad gave me my first 35mm (Pentax K1000) when I was 16 and I was hooked: I drove everyone nuts, did yearbook, etc. I studied photography seriously in college but I decided that I'd get married rather than finish my studies, because at 21 we know everything (what I wouldn't give for a time machine - I'd still get married, but I'd finish school)!
So I put serious camera work aside long enough to be a working wife and mother to two boys. Like all good mothers I used vacations, birthdays and any other excuse I could find pull out my camera and drive them nuts (it's one of the benefits of having kids).
Now with my sons grown (well...almost!) I have felt the need for a good creative outlet.
I hope you enjoy viewing my photo art as much as I have enjoyed creating it. Comments are always appreciated - your feedback is one of the reasons I do this
