I have had many opportunities to photograph places and people of other cultures because my family and I lived outside the States for 34 years. We are now in California, near family, so I have continued my photography, doing family photography. This has included newborns, senior high school sessions, family lifestyle photography, and even weddings. I love natural lighting the most, but have recently enhanced my skills in off camera lighting as well. Photography (like watercoloring and quilting previously) has become my passion.
