We have always told our kids (all five of them) that if they can make a living doing something they love, they will never work a day in their lives. Photography is like that for me. I can lose myself in it for hours and lay awake nights thinking about things to try the next day! We live in a VERY rural area with unique photographic opportunities. I love shooting all of life's little surprises and unscripted moments! I feel very blessed to be doing the kind of "work" that I love and feel passionate about.

Bio

We have always told our children (all five of them) that if they can make a living doing something they love, they will never work a day in their lives. Photography is like that for me. I can lose myself in it for hours and lay awake nights thinking about things to try the next day!
We live in a very rural area which makes for some interesting photographic opportunities. I love to photograph people, especially unique "characters", and unscripted moments.
