  1. When did you come to love Photography?

I have always loved photography. I took so many pictures of my boys growing up! I love the way a photograph can stop time & be the keeper of your memories.  But, the passion for photography really hit me when my first grandson was due….I knew I was ready to take it to the next level. I wanted a good camera and I wanted to learn as much about it as I could. Once I got started, I never looked back. It has been such a joy for me to document his growth. He is 3 1/2 now and my photography has grown right along with him.

  1. What inspires you?

I’m so lucky to have a loving and supportive family…they inspire me daily, especially my little grandson. Although they do get tired of my camera..I won’t lie 🙂 I have a great group of friends too and light…light always inspires me.

  1. What keeps you going when you feel like you’re in a rut?

I feel so lucky to be a part of several groups with other photographers. They are a constant support system.  There is always so much inspiration among all of them!

  1. Why do you love the flaws in art?

I love how unique an image can be when it isn’t technically perfect. I used to be worried that what I saw or felt about an image might not be “acceptable” to others, but have learned to listen to my gut..and my heart when it comes to my art. I think an oof or flawed  image has such an interesting story to tell. It may tell a different story to each person that views it…but that’s ok. That’s what makes it so interesting.

  1. Who’s your favorite photographer and what inspired you about them?

One of my favorites is Dorothea Lange. I’m so inspired by her ability to capture such emotive images. Her images of mothers and their children during the depression are incredible. I am a huge lover of black and white imagery. A lot of my own work is done in black and white!  I have many friends in this photography community that inspire me as well. There is so much talent!

  1. What are your goals for the next year?

I would love to take another light workshop. I’m addicted to learning about it and feel like each time I take a class my photography goes to another level. I want to improve my free lensing too! Overall, I would love to see my photography improve on a whole…just keep growing and learning.

7. What is one advice that you have received that you would like to share with other photographers?

It sounds so cliché, but be who you want to be as an artist. Not everyone will like your work and that’s ok. At the end of the day, if you love it and you’re proud of it…I think that’s a wonderful thing.
