I'm a mom, wife, business professional, photographer, and lover of the outdoors... in that order.
I’ve aspired to be a photographer ever since I took an intro to black and white photography class when I was 19 at Saddleback College (at that time they didn’t even have a digital photography class available). I knew I enjoyed taking photos at an early age (I was the photo editor for my Jr High Newspaper), but the black and white class opened so many doors for me creatively, realizing the full potential of the dark room, perspective, and camera manipulation. From that point forward I was hooked, unfortunately one of the things I took away from that class was that photography was very competitive and not likely a lucrative business venture. So it became my hobby, an expensive hobby at that. Anyone who knows me, when I want to know something, I need to know everything and become a complete expert. So making something my hobby meant learning every possible thing I could about photography, about camera’s, equipment, etc.
From that point I took several photography classes at Orange Coast Community College. During this time digital photography started to become more prevalent, so I started taking digital photo classes and learning about the digital dark room (aka Adobe Photoshop). This new technology, although still expensive, made the whole photography hobby/experience a lot more attainable and affordable.
In the meantime, I was working full time, traveling, falling in love with the love of my life, moving from Southern California to Portland, Oregon, getting married, and having a baby – taking photos all along the way. What a whirlwind!
Now I spend more time photography my daughter then than anything else, but I have to admit she is a pretty awesome subject!
Photography is my true passion and I love sharing that with people. Being able to look back at certain moments and have the photos to help my memories along is so important to me. I like to think that I have a unique eye, you be the judge and take a look.
I’m a new mommy, wife, and amateur photographer (for over 10 years now). I work full time and spend all of my spare moments with my daughter and husband exploring the outdoors and photographing it.
