My favorite job has been the privilege of staying home with my three children for over 20 years while living in Normal IL. But when that time was coming to a end I had to try and figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. I taught developmental psychology classes at the community college. It was here that I happen to take a couple of photography classes and fell in love.
I've been a portrait photographer for over 10 years. But my love is wildlife photography. The peace and quietness in being in nature revives my spirit. My goal for my photography is to create art. I keep my realistic images true to their environment but I’m not afraid to remove distractions and to edit the background to help make the subject pop.
My husband Bruce and I have raised three wonderful young adults. One is a CPA in Tampa. Another is a golf instructor in Manhattan. And the youngest is a travel expert for Audley in Boston.
Even as a master photographer, I'm just like everyone else. When it comes to getting my family all together for a a formal family portrait, we'd all rather go to a cub game. LOL.
