Welcome to my online gallery. I have had a passion for photography since receiving my first 35mm camera as a high school graduation gift. Though unable to pursue photography at the College of William and Mary, I enjoyed every minute of my time there studying international relations. I began studying photography on my own and after my four daughters were in school began a more serious pursuit at Pittsburgh Filmmakers. I continue my education through seminars and classes throughout the US.
With a camera in hand, I set out to see things in a new way. Inspired by natural light, I am always looking to create beauty in everyday scenes.
One of my favorite subjects is people. My aim in my portraits is to capture the essence and personality of those I'm photographing. In so doing I hope to create a portrait that will forever capture a particular moment in time.
I would welcome the opportunity to capture that special moment for you and your family. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to set up an appointment.
