I am married to my high school sweetheart for 31 years now! We started our story together in Georgia circa 1985, not long after we moved to North Carolina with the US Army. Many years later, in 2009, the Army moved us to the beautiful Northwest Florida area. We have been blessed with two of the best young men you can find and they went and brought daughters to the family; we love our daughterinlaws so much! You can now find us in Northwest Florida where we are living our simple little dream on a 6 acre farm property tucked away in Okaloosa County.
I have had a camera in my hand since middle school, and while I have no professional training, I would be confident to say that I have an understanding of the elements of photography that create an excellent image. I started my practice with my younger sister and her friends. Many days went by with me having dressed them up, set up backdrops and clicking the shutter button on my point and shoot all those years ago. I am always experimenting with these elements that I might gain more and more knowledge in order to perfect my craft to the next level.
You will find two professional grade DSLR cameras in my bag along with a number of great prime lenses. I have video capabilities on both of my cameras for ceremonies, special events, but most commonly for my journalistic birth story sessions.
Aside from pressing that shutter button.. I dearly enjoy spending time with my family and friends making lifetime memories. One of the things I really like to do for those who are visiting or staying with us is to cook good food, eat and be merry. My husband and I live on a small farm and grow many vegetables and fruits year round as well as keep more chickens than the law allows (just kidding about that part.. but we keep ALOT of chickens), as well as turkeys, rabbits, 6 beehives, a donkey, two horses, a white unicorn and two cows! All of those things result in GOOD food! So when I am not busy with a client in a photo session, I might be capturing one of our many creatures on film or laboring in one of our gardens.
Thanks for stopping by!
