I am the author of the inspirational nature photography book: Life is a Balancing Act and Nature Understands: A Photographic Journey of Inspiration. For me, and many others, time in nature has restorative powers. It balances our minds and spirits and brings a peace that washes over our hearts. It can be an exhilarating rush of adrenaline or a quiet retreat from the hectic world. Time in nature is a precious gift, and helping others find creative, fun, mindful ways to enjoy that gift is my passion, both through my photography and writings and through encouraging others to get out there and experience it for themselves!
