My love for art started in childhood with drawing and painting while growing up in Indiana.  Somehow I got a little distracted and ended up with degrees in psychology from Purdue and Indiana State Universities rather than pursuing an art degree.  After a few years in Texas, my husband and I moved to the Tampa Bay area in 2010.  Thanks to my husband, I've rediscovered my love for art, which has developed into a love of photography.  Although I am not currently working as a photographer full-time, I spend much of my free time photographing and learning more about photograph.


I am a portrait photographer based in Clearwater, Florida focusing on children, families, individuals, and pets.  I live with my husband and our three adopted dogs who frequently serve as my (sometimes resistant) models.
