Photography has always been a part of my life - my mother was also a photographer, so it must run in my family! It has gotten to the point in my life now that I begin to feel a bit anxious, and have that "something's not quite right" feeling on days when I haven't taken any pictures. My children also see my camera as a part of me. When they see something they find interesting, they say, "Mommy, take a picture!" knowing that the camera is with us.
I am so grateful to have the opportunity to pursue this passion. Photography is healing for me, calming, centering. Looking at life through a lens and trying to capture that fleeting moment, that scene that speaks to me is joy.
An unexpected benefit to opening my Etsy shop has been the incredible friends I have made, through Etsy itself, and through the groups I have joined POE (Photographers of Etsy), EFC (Etsy for Charity), and FAM (Fabulous Artistic Moms). It is wonderful to connect with kindred spirits. I have learned so much from all of you, and feel honored to call you my friends.
And now, a few of my favorites....
