I am a passionate photographer and grab precious time to indulge that passion between professional demands. My mother was a photographer and I learned from early days to see through a lens. My training is from UCSD where I have earned the Professional Certificate in Photography: Images and Techniques. My favorite subjects are landscape and travel photography, AND portraiture. I prefer shooting with natural light, but sometimes it needs a bit of enhancement.
To me, moments are precious. Memories are kept in images and passed through generations. There is such beauty in light, and light on human faces is magic. And I feel strongly that images must be printed and held to become art. In that printed image, moments are preserved.
