I get my inspiration for my photography work from all that my journey has taught me: how to see and appreciate the essence of all life. Even in doing photoshoots, I pull together all of my work in the wellness industry for over 30 years and ask my clients to share what their passions are so I can help reveal their true essence in their photos. My photography work began by capturing my son's joy and essence as a competitive, collegiate rower. There's an amazing story in his journey from a time when he could not even walk without severe pain to working through all to achieve what no one ever dreamed he would. We all have such stories and I work to capture this pure essence of life in all I photograph.
