Photography has been my lifelong pursuit. Beginning with my studies at the University of Dayton where I earned a degree in art – to a real estate photography business that I developed in 1976 – to my current portrait business established in 1998, photography has been my passion.
As a young woman armed with a medium format film camera, a handheld light meter and a vintage flash with disposable bulbs; I entered the world of capturing images on film. I later abandoned the film camera for a digital one and exchanged a darkroom for a “Lightroom” (and Photoshop). Although I’ve had formal training in photography, my real education has happened through experience and over the years I have evolved as photography itself has evolved. What a wonderful ride this has been and I’m as in love with photography as ever!
Having a family has reinforced the importance of saving memories along this journey of life. Photography is an essential way to preserve memories and I want to provide that for others. Not only will I capture the moment in pictures but I also want to capture the memories surrounding the photo session as well. I want you to look back on a time that you and your family bonded for a special experience. My desire is to give you that family experience while capturing moments that you will enjoy time and again in lovely images displayed in your home. I would love to help you capture these important times in your life so that you can remember them always.
