Whenever I get a chance to get away for a weekend, I always make an effort to go into the mountains nearby or Joshua Tree with my camera. Being able to camp and be a part of nature is soothing, and shooting is too.
Being able to take beautiful images of nature's beauty is really a thrill for me. It's always a good time working with models or families, but my one true passion is shooting in mountains, fields, mountains... you name it! It's especially fun when going with one of my photographer friends and comparing shots that forever capture these moments.

I'm a mother of three and I've taken every single one of my children to have photos of them taken as a baby. If you're a new parent I fully suggest doing this. Camera technology advances too quickly to keep up.
I go through phases with how I like to photograph subjects. A method of taking photos that I have been utterly obsessed with lately is long exposure. Even if you're not a photographer, you would recognize a photo taken with long exposure. They're the ones with glowing trails of movement.
I'm a child of the 70s so I experienced analog cameras and film in my youth and lived through the revolution of digital cameras in my early adulthood. Now that I'm in my 40s I look back at my early life with nostalgia.
