At a very young age, I was destined to become a "crafty" individual due in part to my mother and both of my grandmothers. Always one to be pleased by the arts, I quickly picked up various hobbies consisting of sewing, creative writing, drawing, and photography. (One of the most amazing discoveries as a child was my grandma's Polaroid camera!) I can still remember delving into my grandparent's drawer packed full of old photographs and being amazed at the stories they portrayed.
As we each create our own unique experiences through this journey we call life, there are many beautiful images to be captured and cherished. Many times, we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our busy schedules and fail to see the beauty that lies at our fingertips. I choose to look beyond the parameters of everyday life and see the splendor of ordinary beauty.
I have always enjoyed capturing images and memories. It brings me much joy to know that I have the ability to express myself through photos in a way that also enhances the lives of those surrounding me!
