I’ve always loved to be outdoors! Growing up in a small rural town in Michigan, my sister, brother and I played in dirt, caught frogs and tadpoles in ditches, rode horses down the dirt roads and went fishing under bridges. I also loved to spend my time drawing and painting, and I took all the art classes I could in school. I majored in graphic arts and I went on to college for web design, where one of the required classes was photography. I instantly fell in love with taking photos of flowers, birds, insects, deer, landscapes – anything in nature. Most of the photos I take now are shot in my own back yard or in one of the many nearby parks in Shelby Township, Michigan.
I still love being outside – with my camera, waiting to see what hops by or flies in to visit!
