I've had a life long admiration and appreciation for the great outdoors. I am a retired NICU RN, a wife and a full time mom.
I have many blessings, and loving all that life has to offer. I've enjoyed a great passion for photography for many years, and at the prompting of
family and friends, I have decided to pursue it more seriously. When in nature and behind the lens I feel a sense of tranquility and great reward,
that in a sense has become my therapy.
This website is designed to showcase a collection of my favorite images of God's beautiful creatures and creations. In sharing my work, it is my sincere hope
to help others realize that there are times when we all need to slow down and take a moment to enjoy life's simple pleasures that are sometimes overlooked.
Photography is the art of preserving a moment in time that is worth remembering.
Thank You for visiting , and remember to "always smile", because you never know who might be snapping your photo.
"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child and the smiling faces. Smell the rain and feel the wind.
Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams."
