I am a military wife and homeschooling mom of two wild boys. I am not afraid to go out and try something new, even if I fail. I’ve still won because I didn’t let fear stop me. I am human; I make mistakes; I am perfectly imperfect; I am saved by grace. My saying this year is, “don’t feed the fears.” My love for photography started in my grandmother’s kitchen with her Polaroid camera. She made me really think about the shot before I took it and would always tell me, “you only get one shot, so make it count.”  Although I went to college for black and white film after high school, my journey wasn’t straightforward, and as a young adult, photography and I went our separate ways. Being a mom caused our paths to cross again, however, and I began to fall back in love with taking pictures because photography allowed me to see my kids through the lens, inspiring me in a number of new and different ways. As with most everything else that touches my life, I am rarely satisfied with only taking on hobbies and doing things for fun. I can’t learn just the basics of something and move on I have to fully immerse myself and know the art form inside and out. So after the spark of photography was reignited, I studied and completed the photography course offered at the New York Institute of Photography (NYIP). Since then I have gone off on so many rabbit trails, I never know what path I will take next.  All of the trails I go down have their own sets of artistic challenges, some more than others. My life’s journey, and the lessons I learn along the way, are what continually draw me in. It is the not knowing what there is to see that takes me down the next trail. Published in: Child Model Magazine, Mozi Magazine Fine Art addition, Conceptual Magazine, Beyond the Wanderlust, Clickin Moms Pro, Alien Skin Software photo of the year and photo of the month.
