I got started in photography when I was in high school and always loved nature and animal photography. After finishing college I upgraded cameras but still used a high end zoom point and shoot. In 2009 I upgraded to a digital SLR (Canon EOS 40D) and in the summer of 2012 got the EOS 60D! I enjoy taking photographs of beautiful, colorful scenes and I enjoy being immersed in tranquility. The flamingo is my favorite animal and one of my favorites to photograph. I also enjoy photographing my two beautiful cats named Pumpkin and Hazel. I thank my husband Joe who is so patient with me when I am trying to get "the right shot" when we are out!!
