Welcome to my Blog.


From the moment I received my first SLR camera some twenty years ago - a 21st birthday present - it was love at first touch. To me it was, and is, an instrument of creation and inspiration, and it transformed the way in which I viewed the world. Born and raised in the midst of the natural beauty of New Zealand, I have since had the good fortune to travel extensively and to experience the wonder and beauty of varied countries and cultures.
Along the way I've discovered that a photograph is much more than a moment, an image, or an emotion. Not only can it serve to capture the true essence of a person or place, it can embody their heart and soul. When this is accomplished the photograph takes on a life of its own and triggers a deep emotional response in the viewer. As a professional photographer and an artist, it is this goal that I seek to accomplish. Each time I raise my lens I strive to capture the heart and soul of my subject.
I'm blessed to call Bend in Central Oregon my home, an area with an abundance of natural beauty and a plethora of wonderful activities. Every day I wake up grateful for where I live, what I have, and who I am. My passion for photography could not have evolved without my husband and two young children. Over the years they have offered me endless enriched moments to capture, moments that perfectly illustrate that a photograph can be so much more than just an image.
My passion in life is to search out these "soul moments" through the lens of my camera. I invite you to join me on this ever evolving and exciting journey, one that will undoubtedly provide intimate and remarkable memories captured forever for your lasting enjoyment.

I have been educating myself lately on the importance of 'social media'.
My favorite social network would have to be FACEBOOK. It is very rare to come across a person today who is 'not' on facebook. Twittering, myspace, linkedin are certainly lagging behind facebook.
Facebook is the most user friendly network in my opinion and  the best way to share photos.
Times have changed when you bump into a friend you haven't seen in months but you know exactly what they have been up to through reading their facebook postings.
No one is forced to join facebook but you are certainly out of the loop today if you don't have a facebook page.

If you are unsure or have been pondering on the idea of joining facebook, click below to learn more about facebook.


The key is not to live your life through facebook. We are humans and need physical contact!

I hope to see you all on facebook..
