I'm in Italy with +Curtis Simmons  and +Trey Ratcliff  for their Carnival Photography Workshop.  We took a 30 minute gondola ride during the peak of Carnival traffic...crazy! This was our gondolier. He's been a gondolier for 30 years, along with his brothers, his father, and his grandfather. #venice   #italy   #gondolier

My all time favorite animal growing up was always the koala...I fulfilled a childhood dream of seeing a koala in person a few weeks ago when I visited the +Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia! #koala #tarongazoo #sydney #australia

I was out shooting in the garden one morning when this stealthy creature came through the shrubs and swirled her silky body around my legs, purring for a pet.

Three Words for 2015... #2015 #inspiration  
Instead of writing New Year’s resolutions, I’ve started the last few years by picking threewords for my year – three words that would be my mantra, my go-to for inspiration, for grounding, for focus in everything I do. Each y...

You work really hard to forget the bad times. You work even harder to remember the good times, and it is so worth it when you do! Those forgotten nuggets of beauty fill the soul and warm the heart. #memories

Skills
I am a creative, dependable professional committed to excellence in everything I set out to accomplish. I enjoy finding solutions to challenging problems and simplifying complex processes. My experience as an administrative assistant, a high school teacher, and as a ministry director at a mega-church, has equipped me to work with a diverse range of personalities in a variety of situations.
Employment
  • More Time for Photos
    Owner/VA, present
    I understand both the creative and business sides of photography. Being an amateur photographer myself, I know that finding time for your creative side can be challenging when there are so many other important business-related tasks that have to be done. I have experience with many of the tools that photographers use daily — blogs, social media, portfolios, bookkeeping, and more. Check out the How I Can Help section of my website (www.moretimeforphotos.com) for more details. Let me handle those boring “must do” tasks so you can focus on the things that ONLY YOU can do!
