A photographer, story teller, and observer.
I wouldn't be me without...
Christ, my husband, my family, mountains, and days spent at home.
I hope you see...
Stories not yet told, days gone by, and everyday moments.

Why do you blog?
Two reasons. So our parents see the everyday moments of their grandchildren's lives. Secondly, I find more gratitude for life by observing those moments through photography.
What is your preferred equipment?
This answer has been known to change! In 2014, I switched from a Nikon d700 to a Fuji XT1. In 2016, I came back to Nikon with the D750 and I'm very happy with the switch. I'm shooting less film these days, but I still have a Nikon f100. Older film photos on this site are from either a Minolta Autocord, Pentax 645n, or a Holga 120n... with brief appearances by a Nikon f6, Mamiya 645af, and a Ricoh Superflex.
What inspires your creativity?
My children. God's creation. Beautiful light. A place I haven't been. Something left behind with a story left to tell.
