A Little About Me

I am a photographer following in my late father’s footsteps.  He taught me most of what I know and I feel my photography is a way to keep him close to me.  After my father passed, I continued to focus on my skills in image capture, composition and post-processing.  I am a wife and mother of four, and I have been living in Europe for over 20 years.  I love using the camera to capture special moments and the beauty and miracle of life, whether it be in nature or people.  I am also a musician. I started playing piano when I was 6, learning to play by ear before ever learning to read sheet music.  I also played the flute in an orchestra in the Netherlands.  I love to sing!  Growing up, one of my sisters and I would sing together, harmonizing with our favorite songs.  More than anything though, I love my dear husband and four amazing children.
