The ability to capture a single image in a minute fraction of time provides an opportunity to suspend that moment and share it with others.
It has taken me years to fully develop that simple philosophy, but the passage of time most often grants us wisdom. As a child I loved cameras, and at the age of nine I received my very first Polaroid camera. The joy of taking a picture and then peeling back the film of paper protecting the image during its development always amazed and excited me. However, times changed and my Polaroid camera was set aside for the convenience of my little Kodak 110 camera. Its small size made it easy to always keep in a purse or pocket. In later years, I matured and moved up to a 35mm camera, but instead of just taking my own pictures, I began developing
mine and others in our family's photo lab, and although I did not take as many pictures with my 35mm, I was still passionate about photography.
These days, I use Canon DSLRs that enable me to combine my love of technology with my love of photography. Originally from Central Texas, I graduated from Tarleton State University with a degree in Speech Communications and an emphasis on journalism and organizational
communications. My education and training from Tarleton taught me about photojournalism, radio and television production, and advertising. It is because of my educational background that my photography takes on an editorial and photojournalism style. Therefore, I prefer to photograph more on location than in a studio.
