As an amateur photographer, my motivation lies in capturing "our amazing home." Photography is an important tool, to remind us of the beauty and life that surrounds on a daily basis. It not only captures memories but sheds light on those things that ultimately share our home. Photography can bring to ones' mind an awareness of the fragility and yet tenacious force of nature. To top this all off, it is also so much fun! I enjoy and continue to discover so many facets of my camera and I am truly inspired by the viewers reactions to my work.
