Me a few years ago.
A few more people and a little more busy now but an absolutely wonderful busy. :)
I graduated from Utah State University with a bachelor’s in Fine Art/Photography and a minor in French.
With a 20 + year work history in commercial and portrait photography, I enjoy crafting my work to make images that are lasting, emotional and beautiful. I have traveled across the US to photograph on commission. I have taught photography for USU Extension, Ogden Blue art school, Logan City and Dixie College.
While my work and education provided me the ability to craft a fine image, my life experience gave me the ability to recognize an honest moment. I was taken from an abusive family at age of 12. I lived in the foster care system for two years. At age 14 I was adopted to my loving, second-cousin and her family. My adoptive parents provided me a place to heal and learn to see and understand the world with a new healthy perspective. As a child I learned to watch people closely and their intentions. I enjoyed looking for the good in everyone.
This perspective provided a unique way to view individuals and their families. I see inner beauty.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be married to a wonderful cowboy who balances me and beautiful children who teach me every day. They are my greatest accomplishment!
