Hello. This is me – the gal behind the lens. I am an independent professional natural-light photographer. I am also an elementary educator of an I.B. World School located in Northern Michigan. I have three fabulous adult children ages 21, 24, and almost 26. I am married to my high school sweetheart. I love a good cup of coffee. I love my clucking brood of chickens. I love original artwork especially children’s. I love my snuggly goldendoodle dogs – Tank and Fern. I love a good serving of crispy bacon. I love hiking and biking. I love reading a good book and that includes children’s picture books. I love to travel to mountain ranges, seasides, and more. I love a soul-filling day at the hair salon. I love writing stories and snippets about life. I love my family more than bacon. That’s me in a nutshell.
