I have always had a passion for being behind the camera. When I was in high school, I used to have a small Kodak camera, which used 110 film. I used 3 to 4 rolls of film every week. I took pictures of my friends, my horse, flowers, and everything else that caught my eye.
I became serious about photography in 1999, when my husband’s daughter was
getting married. My husband, and I, had been dating for four years, and I had never met his X-wife. Our first meeting was going to be at their daughter’s wedding. Needless to say, I was a bundle of nerves, and I felt like I was the other woman. I discovered the best way to conquer my nerves, was to grab a camera, and hide behind it. After the wedding, when all the wedding photos were being taken, I stood off to the side taking pictures and started making my own little wedding album, it calmed my nerves. I never felt so relaxed in such an uncomfortable setting. When I got home, and developed the photos, I discovered the pictures I had taken were amazing!
Soon after that I discovered landscape photography, and found I couldn’t put the camera down. I started going out every day and finding new places to take photos, and finding new things to photograph. My passion for photography continues to keep growing and I find there are new adventures around every corner.
