Tell us a bit about yourself:

I am a self taught photographer living in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado. I am also a stay at home mom to a 5.5yo and 4yo! I am originally from Virginia, but I really love living here at the base of the Rockies....but I also miss the trees from back east!

How long have you been interested in photography?

I have been interested in photography for as long as I can remember! I took classes in photography starting in 7th grade and through most of High School. In high school, I wanted to make it into a career, but in college, I ended up getting a degree in Criminal Justice and really didn't touch my camera through out college and for a few years after. It wasn't until my daughter was born in 2005 that I found my passion again. Ever since then, I have been trying to teach my self new aspects of photography. In 2007, my husband bought me macro lens for my camera and thats when I realized how much I love fine art photography and taking close up pictures of flowers, food and pretty much anything else I can find. I opened up my Etsy shop in 2009 and realized my old high school dream of making photography a career! 

Purple Dreams - Fine Art Flower Photograph Print - (8x10) Romantic and Dreamy Floral Photogaphy. lilac. lavender purple. pale blue. grey. green. yellow. black. brown.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I get my inspiration from nature around me. I love spring - its when I get my most inspiration because I love all the amazing flowers blooming that time of year. I just want to try to capture their beauty!

What other things do you enjoy doing?

My husband and I love taking our kids camping and hiking during the spring and summer! I am really itching for a camping trip this summer! haha
