A little bit about me personally....

My path to photography was not the one I hear most often, I did not grow up with

a camera in my hand. When I was well into adulthood, I found myself the

assistant troop leader for my younger daughter’s troop (a position to which I

never aspired). My first introduction to what makes a compelling image was

when we took the girls on a field trip to a scrapbooking workshop. The workshop

facilitator talked about what kind of images we would want to include in our

scrapbook. Her example of something we probably wouldn’t want to

recognizable (even to his own parents). My real life example of this as I sat

there was about 20 photographs of a brown dot in a field. It was a bear I

photographed in Alaska, but I am the only one who knew this was a bear in the

field (even with a magnifying glass). Our troop field trips are the reason I first

picked up a camera (someone had to photograph the girls’ activities) and shortly

thereafter I began enjoying the challenge of photographing the neighborhood

swim meets. I stepped onto a path of non-traditional photography education (a

distance course...in the days before YouTube, local seminars and, of course,

Texas School). People at church started seeing me with a camera in my hand at

various church events and I started getting requests to take family portraits. I am

a bit of a rule follower and I like to do things right, so I got my dba and my sales

tax ID and started my business as a photographer.

These days I primarily do general portraiture (people and pets), but also still do a

few weddings and events each year.......and.....a whole lot of flowers....
