There was a time in my life when the idea of getting up early in the morning was unbearable. The thought of pulling myself from the warmth of my bed was so unappealing, and I was blind to what I  could be experiencing in the outside world. The day I discovered my love for photography that all changed. Any given morning you  will now find me up before the sun, embracing the elements and the beauty of nature that surrounds us, waiting for that once-in-a-  lifetime moment to be captured  and forever treasured  with a swift click of my finger. Somehow being present in life became far more  fulfilling for my soul than the  temporary  relief of my warm slumber.

  I had the pleasure of growing up surrounded by the empowering beauty of the forest and all of its friends in Conway, MA. There is no     more    inspiring landscape  than the hills of my youth for capturing nature’s fleeting moments. My mother’s photo albums are filled  with    visual reminders  of hikes through these woods. The  work of my father hangs framed on the walls of my parents’ old farm house to this day, offering pictures of my  sister and me. They are constant reminders of the power of film and the beginnings of my love for photography.

  After high school, a burning desire to discover the world, help others, and serve my country influenced my decision to join the Air  Force,  where I  was stationed in  Montana. Never had I been to such a breathtaking area of the world and experienced such a raw and  natural  environment. The crisp and fresh air allowed me to  breathe as if it was my first time. I no longer live in that vast state, but a  part of my  heart will remain there  forever.

  Before returning to Conway to pursue my education, I spent time living in Europe. I was honored to have the opportunity to  photograph  some of  the oldest structures on earth. Being surrounded by enchanting villages and landscape provided unlimited  photographic canvas  options and  strengthened my desire to capture our amazing planet and the people and cultures that inhabit it. In  a place where birthday  parties are held in old  castles, it is hard not to develop a great love for portrait photography. It is a  heartwarming experience capturing  the smiles of little girls, more  commonly seen on the military base in their jeans and tees, when  they are dressed up like princesses and  spending time with their biggest heroes,  their fathers and mothers.

 I learned what unconditional love meant the day my son was born and became my ultimate motivation. I hope to inspire him through my photography, and show him my story someday through my prints. For now, I enjoy every moment of every day looking at life through his young innocence, and enjoy capturing the world through his eyes. I hope that my photos now hanging on our farm house walls will also inspire him to pick up a camera someday and find his own fresh view of this world, and that it will speak to his soul as my camera has done for me.
