My Mini-Pic

The greatest JOY in my life comes from my relationship with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He has blessed me abundantly with an amazing husband, four awesome children - two boys and two girls who range in age from 28 to 11 - and in August 2008, a beautiful Daughter-in-Law. In December of 2011, along came my first grandson, Thomas, and in June of 2013 his sister and my first granddaughter, Chloe.

My love of photography began many years ago when I received my first 35mm SLR camera, a Canon AE-1, as a gift from my parents. I shot mostly black and white and spent many hours in my darkroom. My passion for photography has been renewed as I have discovered the new world of digital photography and Photoshop! I still love black and white, especially portraits. I love to photograph my children and unashamedly have been known to bribe them into posing for me!

I am awestruck at the work of my Lord and the amazing beauty He created that exists everywhere I look. The details, whether brought closer to me through my telephoto lens, or microscopically through my macro lens, never cease to amaze me! I cherish the time I am able to behold this beauty while peering through my lens.
