As a photographer, I have spent many years using my camera to capture the memories and preserve my heritage for my family and the families I love. My first camera was a Polaroid given to me by my grandfather at the age of 5. I now spend much of my time photographing children, families, and the mid-west countryside. As a mom of 3, I know how important it is to capture all ages and stages of your children's lives and the life of your family. All it takes is a little bit of time, some creativity, and lots of laughter and you can capture future family memories!
