I grew up in a home where photography was highly valued and learned from my mother's photos as well as Great Grandfather's photos. I loved when my my Mom would give me little mini lessons and I got to shoot while were were out on hikes. I am doing my best to do the same with my children and want a place where I can share my photographs. I have a Bachelor of Arts from Lewis & Clark College and got halfway through my Doctorate in Psychology when it became more practical and more desired to stay at home with my baby boy. I have considered going back but my love of other things keeps pulling away. Photography is one of those things.
