After a rewarding career as a registered nurse in Boston, Massachusetts and a continuing career as a fitness instructor, I am now actively pursuing my passion for photography - particularly landscape photography as well as nature, wildlife. I have lived most of my life in New England and hope to show the beauty and spirit of this area through my images. My joy in photography began as a child taking black and white photos with a Kodak Brownie Instamatic camera. As cameras improved, I continued photographing people, places, and family celebrations. Recently I have attended classes at New England School of Photography in Boston and participated in numerous workshops throughout New England, learning the newest techniques of digital photography. My goal is to create images that evoke emotion and capture the spirit and beauty of the world around us. I strive to find the best quality light and the most vibrant color, all while capturing a compelling composition. For me, it's not just taking a good snapshot anymore, it's making an image that conveys a mood, a feeling, and perhaps even triggering a memory within us. I hope you enjoy my images from New England and beyond as much as I have enjoyed taking them.
