my story

INTERVIEW

I still remember my first camera. It was a shiny black Kodak Brownie Starflash and I loved taking pictures of everything and anything from cats to covered bridges. Back then film and bulbs where expensive and a luxury item in my household. Whenever my parents could afford it I’d take as many pictures as I could. I still have a lot of those old pictures tucked away and they bring with them some great memories of my childhood.

A lot has happened between then and now including marriage, three children, divorce, remarried and two grandchildren. It took a long time to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. It’s funny how I knew the answer to that question all along and here I am doing the thing I loved most as a child. The only difference is that I’m now taking pictures of women and helping them to see themselves as strong, confident, sexy and beautiful. I LOVE my job!
