Hi there! A little about me: In the early 1970's-1990's I raised and showed collies, writing and doing photos for a specialized magazine. How ironic that now my household consists of one toy poodle and a rat terrier rescue!

Life took a turn in the 2000's and allowed me the opportunity of concentrating more on my passion of writing and photography and most important--enjoying my two grandsons! I found myself so busy taking photos of them, it was an easy step when folks started asking if I'd do work for them. It's been an adventure and I look at each assignment as 'art' in making! I've also had the pleasure of working with networking clubs as their event photographer. As much as I love taking shots of people, nature photography holds a special place in my heart because this is what allows ''me'' to slow down, put the computer aside,and connect with the environment. I find it absolutely amazing how much there is to see in our wonderful area!
