How long have you been a photographer and what was the main reason you started?

I started when I was 15 in high school.  I loved working in the darkroom. Over the years, though, I put it aside and probably 10 years ago got really serious about it again.  Like most mom photographers out there, it was my four kids that made me want to get better and back into it again.

What (who) are your favorite types of subjects to shoot and why?

I’ve got four of them- and I created them all:)

Which camera brand do you shoot with? Any specific reason why?

Canon.  And only because I started with it.  I’ve just always stuck with what I know and I’ve got no complaints!

What is your go to lens?

Always the 135mm 2.0- I can’t seem to break up with that one.

If you could only give one piece of advice to a new photographer out there, what would it be?

Don’t stop practicing- or learning.  And don’t ever get the feeling like you know it all.  There are new things to learn every day with photography, so take it one click at a time.

If you had $1000 right now to spend on photography gear, what would you buy?

Probably wouldn’t be gear but a trip to shoot at a new location.  Maybe Australia? For $1000, I couldn’t take the family with me though, but that’s ok, they can stay home for this one.

Do you have any secret tips for getting people to loosen up/smile during a shoot?

Break out your inner comedian- no matter how cheesy.  Not only will it loosen up your subjects- but you too.

If you could photograph any person (dead or alive) who would that be?

This is tough because a lot of people come to mind.  I do love a lot of rock bands though and think it would be a cool change of subject.  Maybe someone like Panic at the Disco or Twenty One Pilots. I think that would be pretty fun and very different for me.
