I was a stay-at-home mom of two babies when my husband handed me an entry level DSLR camera. Little did he know, he unleashed the photography dragon within me! I couldn't get enough of studying, learning and mastering my camera. The passion keeps on growing. I literally feel happy fuzzies in my tummy whenever I pick up my camera.
As a teenager, long before I ever knew there was such a thing as a career in photography, I was always, by default, handed the camera at family events. I didn't know about ISO, composition, aperture or shutter speed back then, but the passion was already there!
The research professor, Brene Brown, has changed my life. I am less afraid to be vulnerable and authentic and I enjoy life's challenges so much more, as well as know how to handle them better. I so highly recommend all books Brene!
Morning coffee is bliss. For Christmas my husband bought me a Nesspresso coffee machine, you know the kind that lets you foam the milk 13 different ways. Best. Gift Ever.
I love social cooking—friends gathered together in the kitchen sipping cocktails kind of cooking.
I have lived in or spent time in every country in South American except for Suriname, the Guianas and Bolivia. Brazil is my favorite place to be. Podemos conversar en español o também podemos falar em português. When people ask me where I'm from, I often ask, "How much time do you have?"
In my next life I will be a singer/actress. In this life I am content to listen to music--on good speakers. I still do sing loud and secretly dream about being a back-up vocalist for Chris Stapleton. (We all dream, right?)
