My Mini-Pic

Hi -
I have lived in Portland, OR for the past 27 years, after growing up in suburban NJ.

I have always loved the outdoors from childhood gardening and camping to backpacking, hiking and x-country skiing in CO, CA & OR. Now my natural pursuits involve gardening and photography. I am also a smitten grandmother (my grandson a frequent subject of my shooting).

In 2007, I upgraded my Nikon D70 to the D200 and particularly love the versatility of the VR 18-200mm. My daughter, Rebecca Lefferts, who also has a betterpholio at BetterPhoto, inherited my D70 and took my picture on this page.

My husband is patient with my photographic pursuits, and my two sons are occasional subjects of my shooting. I wish I knew as much PS as my middle son (animation major), who is the father of my grandson!
