How it all began...

...really I can't remember when it all began, I have had a love of photography since I was very young. My Dad used to develop photographs in our attic and he always had his Rolleiflex in his hands!! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been asked to photograph friends over the years and have really developed a passion in the last few years!

I strive to learn and improve, every single day...eat, sleep, breathe photography!

 

My college training was nursing and I met my husband, Scott just after becoming RGN, in Edinburgh, Scotland. We moved to the USA shortly after having our twins in 2002 and became citizens in 2012 - yes, I still have the accent ;)

 

I am Mom to 3 girls, my oldest is a sophomore at Miami University and my twins will be seniors in the class of 2020 in high school.

I know just how fast our kids grow up and love to capture the phases of their lives!

In January 2018, I declared candidacy to educate myself to become a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) through the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). But what exactly is a certified professional photographer??....

 

The Certified Professional Photographer credential was started in 1977 as a way to identify professional photographers who have demonstrated technical competence through a written exam and photographic evaluation.  

 

The Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) program from PPA assures potential clients of a photographer's knowledge, experience and continuance to develop new skills and techniques. It is a declaration of professional competence and ability.

In March 2019, I successfully passed the second part of the certification process - image evaluation, to become certified....this is just the beginning of my learning!   I regularly attend events run by local and nationally recognized professional photographers and organizations to continue learning and learn from other experienced photographers.

I enjoy donating my time and giving back to local charity events, I regularly photograph local running events, Girls On The Run twice per year and the Heel to Heal 5k.
