I have been trying to pin down the exact moment when photography became my passion and thinking back it must have started with the first class I took in photography. I could not wait to come home and share all that I had learned with my mom.  She must have had the same itch for pictures because we both bought cameras and dark room equipment and starting snapping photos of life around us. I would race home where we would jump in the car together, sometimes as family with my Dad behind the wheel stopping each time we squealed for him to stop so we could get the shot. Those memories are still fresh today and remind  me that this is my passion and where I want to be is behind the lens.  I have taken the first steps on my journey to “Freedom Behind The Lens and I hope you will join me.
