As I am sure you can tell by now, this site is a work in progress…a little bit like me. I’ve taken this recent relocation to Las Vegas as a chance to find myself and my place in photography again. If this is your first time here, thank you for visiting. What you may not know is that I was previously a lifestyle photographer of families, children, maternity and newborns in the panhandle of Florida and I loved what I did.
Then, life threw me a curveball.
In February 2008, I was diagnosed with CLL, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and I shut down. I quit taking on new clients and I just functioned enough to get by. Once my business licenses expired that summer, I officially closed my business and pouted. I was angry at God, but even more, I was angry at myself for letting that ugly “c” word win.
But, not anymore.
I am still not sure what God wants me to do with this disease or with my life, but I do know that I can’t keep denying my passion. Photography is my passion, my creative outlet. When I can’t express what is going on inside in words, I can in my art. It next to God and my family, is the only thing that brings me true happiness.
I am not ready to take on clients again just yet, but I am ready to get out there in the world with a camera in hand again!
