I have always had a passion for capturing moments on film. With more than 20 years of experience, I have the skill and trained eye to make your project come to life.
To get to know me all you have to do is look at my photos. They are interesting, fun and bright. I’m certainly not into boring but I am into capturing the photos that I know you will place on your walls to admire every day.
Of course like many before me, my passion for photography started in high school. I couldn’t afford a big fancy camera then so a basic point and shoot and some regular film was all I needed to get the job done.
By the time I had my second son, my husband pointed out that I needed to upgrade my photography equipment. He saw that I was passionate about amazing photos and excited every time I recalled a memory from a photo that I had taken. So with a little loan from the bank of hubby, I updated my camera and built a studio!
My first step was getting to learn the technical side on a DSLR. Sure I could set up a photo and make it look nice, but all these new lens’ and all this technical jargon… egads! So yes, if I was going to do this, then I was going to do it right. Which led me to my mentor and now my associate. I took private lessons, studied online and practiced, practiced, practiced.
The best part is all my hard work and good intentions paid off not only earning me a living but also meeting some new and amazing clients as well as earning me a faculty spot with Sheridan College in the Digital Arts Department where I have now been teaching photography since 2013. Who would have thunk it! I should really thank my husband for all the encouragement 🙂
Now owning my own professional photography business is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Not only do I get to create my own hours making it easy for me to still raise my kids, but it allows me to encourage other young women to never forget the their dreams and that anything is possible if you work for it. At the end of my day though its about making my clients and my family happy and encouraging budding young people to follow their dreams no matter how distant they may seem.
What you should know about me:
-I use both a Mac and a PC and yes my left and right brain get along just fine together 😉

So this is me in a nut shell. I hope I didn’t bore you. If you would like to know more about me, then drop me an email or better yet give me a call.
