How did you get into photography?

I’ve had an interest in photography since my late teens, however it’s only been in the last 5 years that I’ve really pursued it as a career. I started out as just a mom with a camera. I wanted to capture so many precious moments that occur on any given day in my four children’s lives. I found the more I searched for photo opportunities, the more observant I became and as a result I started seeing so much beauty everywhere! And not just in my children, but with other people, their children, my surroundings, sunsets and sunrises. All golden moments.



What do you love most about it?

I love the surprises. You could be in a concrete jungle and a muddy puddle could reflect a plane going overhead and it could just be magic! To the untrained eye one might look around in a situation and miss the beauty, but if you’re looking for beauty it can always be found. I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to look at life through a lens and capture a certain perspective that is uniquely mine. It’s an art form in itself and I feel like with the technology available today, the sky is the limit in regards to learning new skills and capturing more and more of what’s all around us.
