I am still laughing at that picture... it is so NOT me!  I am a wife and the mother of four beautiful children, or in other words 'a chicken with my head cut off'.  It cracks me up more than anything, that my friend accidentally caught a serene picture of me.  Well at least I know what I look like in my dreams!

And about those dreams...
I have always had a love affair with the camera.  We moved around quite a bit when I was a child, and I loved to document every passing friend, every passing place, every passing memory.  I worked at a studio in my late teens, developing the film and printing the portraits.  When my first child was 8 months old, I composed a simple snapshot of him crawling on the beach.  Actually, it isn't simple... it is deeply filled with the emotions of his new life exploring his new world!

And that is how this story begins!

Six years later and one week shy of giving birth to my fourth child, I was commissioned to photograph a wedding.  It has been a whirlwind ever since!  Two years later, I am finally finding the right balance between my art and my family.
