Hello, I am so glad you are here!
I am a doctor, a mother of three rambunctious children, and a passionate photographer. Although I have always loved to take photographs, initially with my Canon film camera, it wasn't until I started taking pictures of my children that photography became a passion in my life and forever changed how I view and experience the world.
I grew up living on three different continents (Europe, Africa and North America) and many cities in the US and abroad. Currently I call central Illinois my home where I live with my husband, three children and a blue beta fish. I love to travel and experience new cultures and people. Above all, I love to explore and learn, and collect new experiences. I find refuge in books and nature. My idea of a perfect afternoon would be to go to the bookstore to browse and read, and then meet a friend for coffee and intimate conversation.
Color, lines, moment, and connection make my heart sing. I am a spiritual seeker and being unattached to any particular religion--I take inspiration from all paths. To me, photography is a form of meditation and contemplation of the world we live in. Photography is a way to truly be present and to record a moment that otherwise would be lost forever. It is a way to connect with others, with nature, and with my own soul.
I am a noticer and a collector of details. I am an explorer of the human heart. I am a healer. Come join me.
