My passion for photography has been instrumental in showing me God’s beauty in my surroundings.

A beauty I want to share with everyone.

My pictures are a part of who I am.

They are carefully taken with the intention of

spreading love, happiness and sunshine …

most importantly LOVE

As I’ve gotten older, my thoughts tend to focus on the simpler things in life. It wasn’t until I spent time trying to figure out a niche for my photography that I realized, with the help of my mentors, how much my photography actually reflects those thoughts. So, I took a leap of faith and decided to really concentrate on photographing what I feel in my heart.

I’m excited to have finally reached the point with my photography where I know the direction In which I want to go. While I tend to lean toward photographing the simple way of life, I do dabble in other areas as well.

The Simple Way of Life

My hope is, as you look through my photos, at least one of them will stir an emotion. Or maybe even cause you to remember something happy from your past. Like visiting Grandma’s house or maybe you will want to go to a farm to see the cows or the adorable sheep.

One of my photos might even make you think, “Where can I hang this,” or “Who can I send this card to, to put a smile on their face?” It warms my heart when one of my pictures or greeting cards has touched someone in such a way, they want to share that feeling. Please take some time to look through my pictures. Try to imagine where you would hang the one you like best. The one that puts a smile on your face.

Stirring up Memories

Some fun facts about me

When I was 18, I saved enough money to buy a Polaroid camera and I remember being amazed at the technology that allowed me to see a color photo, moments after I took it.

It wasn't until I was an adult and people began remarking on the quality of my pictures, that I began pursing photography more seriously.

My greatest thrill was when I was asked to donate my photo of Howard Lasher’s 9/11 Memorial in Newtown, CT, to the American Stock Exchange.

The photo is of the flag, hand painted on six trees. It is a living memorial for ten of his friends and colleagues, who perished in the Windows on the World restaurant on 9/11. We hung the photo in their honor. With the closing of the American Stock Exchange in 2008 the picture was moved and is now hanging in the New York Stock Exchange. Copies of it also hang in many offices, schools, and homes nationwide.

My dream is to have the image, in the photo below, become a reality and to one day have my 9/11 Memorial photograph hanging in the Oval Office.

In 2011 I embarked on a photographic odyssey

I successfully took and posted a picture 365 days in a row.

I met a lot of incredibly talented photographers, as we shared each other’s odyssey. I learned a lot about photography and life. I’d recommend doing a 365 project to anyone who is serious about photography. I’m pretty sure I’m going to do another one. Click on picture for the link, if you would like to see the results of my efforts. 

I am a native of Connecticut, born and raised in Ridgefield. I now live in Bethel.  I am basically a self taught photographer and photographic designer. However, I did graduate from the New York Institute of Photography and am currently enrolled in an ongoing program to enhance my photo artistry.  I am a longtime active member of the Candlewood Photography Club.
