Work
Occupation
Eye Candy Junkie! My love of photography started with my kids. They have been growing up with a flash and a lens in their eyes. In the past year I've taken courses, and completed a 365 project. This has inspired me to carry on learning, growing and creating. I am in awe of the photography on the internet and spend hours flipping through sites. I love portraits, macros, and abstracts the most. What I look for in a photo is INTEREST. Some hook or catch that makes you sit back and go "hmm...interesting." To me, that is the ultimate compliment. For an example, I LOVE Elliott Erwitt's work. He's always got something in his photos that stands out, some visual pun or joke. I hope to learn enough, work enough, that I can call myself a professional one day. Compliments and critiques are always welcome!

A world-travelling picture-taking mom!
Introduction
I am many things. Photographer, mom, military spouse. I'm a reader, jewelry-maker, gamer, and struggle with gluten-intolerance and fitness. Also now I am a Graphic Design student!  Mostly I'm perfectly imperfect with good intentions!

I am loving G+ and everything it offers.

Excited for season 9 to start in September. Capaldi's hair is so much more "Doctor" in the trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bB8fh4QUy-A

I recently began something very new for me. Writing has been something I practiced only in my journals or personal correspondence.  I never thought of myself as a writer, even though I'd gotten several compliments from people. 
Then I saw a call for submissions for a new website that fit into one of my passions. Wellness at any size or ability. I decided to write about my experience with yoga. And to my surprise it was accepted! The owner of this site could motivate anyone, she's so sweet and encouraging that I wrote a few other pieces for this blog. 
And I have more ideas percolating. It's easy to write about something that I'm passionate about. 
I thought it was time to share this site with you all. It's aim is not body acceptance per se. It's about wellness. It's meant for women, and memberships for the forum are restricted to women to encourage an open, safe, and sharing environment. (you might get a pop up, but the site is free for most of the content)
In addition, this is a great way for you to get yourself out there if your business is "plus positive". Check out the business directory and I encourage you to contact Liz if you'd like to have your business on the map. (I'm looking at you boudoir photographers, wedding photographers, illustrators, etc!)
I really want this site to survive and thrive, and not only because I'm having a blast writing for it! The world needs more of this.  Big Beautiful Wellness!
We are a COMMUNITY of ALL women.. all sizes! Plus Size Wellness in all aspects of life is crucial. Good Health is the ULTIMATE GOAL – not body size; Participating in all aspects of a normal life is fundamental; Body size is not an indication of fitness of any kind – physical or emotional ...

During my visit to Las Vegas, I was lucky enough to be part of a small group that got to spend a few hours in a bladesmith's forge/studio. So here we have Jim from Salamander Armoury (http://atar.com/joomla/) in his glory. He had stories upon stories to share, all while taking a simple iron rod and forming it into a shiny blade. These are just some of the shots I took. 
Definitely a highlight of the trip for me.

A recent model workshop in Las Vegas gave me the confidence to accept this lady's request for some head shots. I still fiddled and sweated through using my speed light but we are both pleased with the results.

Now I can share this album publicly. These were the photos I submitted to +Chrysta Rae 's Scavenger Hunt. The 15th hunt so far!!! That's crazy. I haven't done every hunt, and I will likely skip the next one just to stay sane. But a better, more supportive, more wonderful group of people on the internet you won't find!

Day #5 of #blackandwhitechallenge   This was a very early photo on G+  I can see things I'd want to change in it now, but I remember being very proud of it at the time. I so wish I'd aligned the "spokes"of those bottles. Just one of those details you don't see until your eye is more trained. :) Should drive you OCD'ers a bit nutty. :)
NOw I'm done this challenge. Thanks +Elke Hochban for nominating me. It was fun to look through old photos.

you might be able to connect them from one to the next but I don't think they would be a straight line.
