What sparked your interest in photography?

I realized, from a very young age, that photographs could take you back in time. Put together, they could tell a story that spanned generations. My mom has a large hutch with drawers that housed our pictures. Many were not in books so when a photo was searched for, hours were spent remembering. My husband got me my first DSLR as a gift when our first daughter was born. I had never had a better reason to capture my moments.

Which comes first, the story or the photo?

The story! I rarely pose anyone and love chasing my kids around. I always have my camera within reach and they’ve grown used to me asking questions about what they’re doing and taking pictures while I do. Even when I’m laying out pieces for a still life, they “speak” to me and I have to ask what I’m trying to convey with my set up.

If you could only use one lens for the rest of your life, which would it be?

I rented a Canon L 24-70 mm f2.8 for our trip to Disney and I fell in love. I can’t afford it right now, so my Canon 35 mm f/2 is my work horse.

What motivates you to pick up your camera every day?

Memories need to be captured. All I have left of my Dad are pictures and I display them prominently. I want my girls to remember. I want my grandkids to remember. And maybe someone else is feeling something – blessed, motivated, happy – through my work.

What is your favorite thing about CY365?

Not until my second daughter was born about 4 years ago did I realize I wanted my photos to capture more and I needed to get better. I fumbled along, sometimes getting lucky which pushed me to find out how to get more consistent. I had never heard of a 365 project until I read an article on consistency. Then it clicked. This group has simply made me a better photographer. Period.
