I am originally not from Utah, but have lived here for the past 20 years. Utah became a home away from home. I have 5 wonderful children, they keep me pretty busy. They are my pride and joy. I am married to the most wonderful man. He is my best friend, my support and my true love. Photography was always an interest of mine. I've taken a few classes in college but instead majored in International Politics. Most of my knowledge comes from years of experience, tinkering around and trying new things. I take a few classes/seminars occasionally to keep up with the latest techniques. Even though dark room and film development fascinates me, I shoot digital only and very Canon biased. I use professional software for editing. Very grateful for those tools, great fallback for me.
