Photography has always been a part of my life.

When I was in high school, my friends and I would bring my dad's old canon down to the docks by the lake and take pictures of the stars and the lights from the Village reflected in the water. After my grandparents died, I found a stack of old photos in a box. One picture, my grandparents in a canoe, laughing in a rain storm on the Nile River, hangs on my wall. When I had my first baby, I found myself constantly taking pictures of his tiny feet and fuzzy white hair.  I would say my time in the garden is split between actually gardening and photographing my plants.

Taking pictures thrills me. I try to keep cameras close in hopes that I'll get that timeless image that will hang for years on a wall.  I want to capture a feeling.

Besides having a life consumed with photography, I am a fitness enthusiast, a quilter, an outdoors-woman, a musician, an avid gardener, a mother of two little boys and a wife to one of the world's handsomest fiddlers.
