I have always been a shutterbug, ever since junior high. I didn’t realize until later in life that I truly had a hidden talent. I can take a mean photo when the planets and stars are aligned. When I finished my Project 365 five years ago, I realized then that it was my calling. My true passion lies in nature, landscapes, birds, still life or inanimate objects. I could sit for hours watching a Snowy Owl in freezing temps or capturing the beautiful color of fall. I gradually moved into Portrait Photography and specialize in high school seniors and families.
I am a single mom to a beautiful teenage daughter, and after being laid off from my day job 2 summers ago, I decided to go back to school. I am a full time student, pursuing a degree in web design. I work part time at a charter school and also volunteer with my sidekick’s high school dance activities and at the local wildlife refuge. I am a member of the Elk River Arts Alliance, Elk River Photography Club, Champlin Area Photography Club and the Sandhill Photography Club.
