20 Years of experience

I love real interactions with real people. My best work has circled around interacting with the people in front of me. The knowledge and skill of photography goes nowhere if the people in front of the camera are not interested in being there or are uncomfortable, or in the case of children just want to run away!

I am a mom, preschool teacher, and counselor. This gives the me patience, communication, and experience to work with anyone.
