"Photography is my zen, my time to immerse myself in the present and represent what I see, feel and understand . "
About me...My love of photography started in my 20's and has continued throughout the years since. Just in the past 10 years I have been able to take photography much more seriously in terms of learning my craft, acquiring gear, attending many workshops and doing the one thing that can make all the difference... practice, practice, practice!. Photography has truly changed the way I see the world. Noticing the details and being able to capture those details and their emotional impact is what I aim to do. I actually love all types of photography and enjoy everything from senior portraiture to pet and sports photography. But wildlife photography is what drives my passion. It is difficult, you never know if the animals will appear, how close you will get, will the weather cooperate, will the light be right...it is that uncertainty , the hope that there may be an amazing surprise, that the universe may deliver that really amps the anticipation.
I am a Mom to 2 amazing young adult kids, a wife to my sweet husband, best friend and partner in all things, Mark, and I am a veterinarian and practice referral small animal internal medicine in beautiful Bend, Oregon. My dog family is so important too. We recently said goodbye to our 3 elder dogs.. such a sad transition, but we now have a new blank slate rescue... bringing love and light, a lot of torn-up stuffed animals and mischief back into our home! I hope the images you will see here bring joy to your day and wonder to your heart!
