The beauty of life is exquisite yet so fragile and fleeting. Often we get so busy in our every day lives that we can forget to stop and appreciate the beauty that is all around us - from the soft petals of a flower to the intricate patterns of architecture.

My photographs are my attempt to capture and immortalize that beauty.

Bio

I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley with my husband, son and daughter. I enjoy gardening, which has been the inspiration for many of my photographs.

My interest in photography began at a young age, when my Uncle gave me an old Praktica Nova IB camera to use. From that moment on, I was hooked, and took pictures of everything I could. My current camera is a Canon 20D digital SLR.

I have a degree in Music Education from James Madison University, which I am currently using to entertain my toddler son and infant daughter.

In addition to photography, I also love to paint, with my primary medium being watercolors.
