Our life - sprinkled with light.

BEHIND THE CAMERA 

 

I AM A MOTHER FIRST.  I HAVE THREE GIRLS WHO ARE TRULY THE BEST THINGS I'VE EVER CREATED AND NURTURED. THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LITTLE HUMANS AND I'M THANKFUL FOR EACH DAY I'M GIVEN TO BE THEIR MOTHER.  I AIM TO TEACH THEM TO BE STRONG WOMEN WHO GO AFTER THEIR DREAMS. I WORK HARD - EVERY DAY - TO SHOW THEM EXACTLY HOW THAT'S DONE.

EVER SINCE I PICKED UP A CAMERA AS A TEENAGER IN HIGH SCHOOL - I'VE AIMED TO DO NOTHING ELSE BUT PHOTOGRAPH LIFE - HOW I SEE IT. I BELIEVE IN MY VISION. WHATEVER IT IS THEY CHOOSE TO DO IN LIFE - I HOPE THEY TOO BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES - FEARLESSLY - AUTHENTICALLY - RELENTLESSLY.  

I AM A SPECIAL NEEDS MAMA AND WHILE MY GIRLS ARE HIGH FUNCTIONING - I FEEL PULLED TO CONNECT WITH OTHER FAMILIES WHO HAVE BEEN FACED WITH SIMILAR STRUGGLES AND TRIUMPHS - ESPECIALLY MAMAS. I LEAD THE EFFORTS OVER AT SPECTRUM INSPIRED, A 501C3 NON PROFIT THAT AIMS TO DOCUMENT THE LIVES OF FAMILIES TOUCHED BY AUTISM TO FEUL A MUCH NEEDED LEVEL OF AWARENESS.

SOME THINGS I ESPECIALLY ENJOY BEYOND MY WORK INCLUDE: COOKING, SUNSHINE, WANDERING AROUND KROGER, SARCASM, GOOD BEER AND GREAT MUSIC.
