Me in Bluebonnets 2018
As long as I've lived in Texas, and as many times as I've been to bluebonnet country, I've never had my picture taken in bluebonnets. This year I finally did!! The day was beautiful but the wind was kicking up terribly. Still, I managed to get one photo taken where you can still see my face.
I love this time of year!
My Photographic Journey
I love photography and I feel so blessed to be able to look at my subject and feel its beauty with my heart, as well as see it with my eyes.
I have always had an interest in cameras and pictures, but never seriously, other than that photos froze time and gave me memories of places I've been and events that were going on. Where did this interest come from? Not really sure. It could have been from my mom, who kept many photo albums of the family from back in the 1940's, maybe even the 1930's. I no longer can remember, and those photo albums are gone - lost in the flood of 1972 in Wyoming Valley, Pennsylvania. I still grieve the loss of those family photos, because at the time, I guess I took them for granted. And now that I do genealogy research and build my family tree, I really miss having those photos. Because they did freeze time for me, and gave me a photographic sense of my family history. I remember looking at them, all secured with their photo corners on black album pages, with names and dates written for each one!!! What a treasure! What a loss!
My journey into professional photography began with an interest in nature and wildlife photography, and I have taken part in, and won, several print competitions, the most exciting for me being winning Best Landscape in the "Landscapes, Dreamscapes, Seascapes" juried exhibition at the Arts Alliance Center at Clear Lake in 2006. I have also had delight in seeing one of my photos published in the April 2009 Aquarium and Fish International magazine. And while I still enjoy mingling with God's wilder creations, I have found that I love photographing people most of all, and I have evolved into concentrating on being a people and event photographer.
I am home-based in Spring, Texas and available for on-location assignments. As my business continues to grow, my excitement grows at the opportunities I have to document the magic moments in your lives - living, loving, laughing! I plan to enjoy this whole photographic journey, so come along with me, and have a relaxed, memorable session. Proofing of your forever memories can then be done either in person or through my on-line studio.
I am a member of Professional Photographers of America, and Texas Professional Photographers Association. I also attend meetings at the Professional Photographers Guild of Houston. My membership in these professional organizations and my attendance at photographic seminars and workshops help me to be able to give you the best quality work possible.
Until then ----
P.S. This is me with Santa a LONG time ago! I wonder if he brought me all the things I wanted that year!! HA! HA!
