Why photography? Well, I used to have an eidetic, or photographic, memory. Then all of a sudden, a tumor that had been growing in my brain for 18 years made it's presence known and I had to have extensive surgery - goodbye tumor, but also goodbye photographic memory. Where I once was able to vividly recall details like what color sweater you were wearing, the weather, and what exact phrases you said in a conversation we had on May 1st 2001, I now rely on photos to remember moments and details. Photos are extremely important to me because they capture the beauty and detail in an ephemeral world; life is too short, yet can you even remember most of it?
In Santa Rosa, California
Each day to the fullest, which sometimes means skipping the real dishes and playing pretend in the play kitchen
Off coffee and banana nut muffins I bake with my 2 year old each week
At myself when I wear two different shoes outside (mommy brain is real!)
At my favorite shows no matter how many times I've watched them (The Office, Scrubs, Parks and Rec)
At my husband's funny (and sometimes not funny) Dad jokes
My circus: two little boys, two little dogs, and loving husband
Christmas - my "love language" is giving gifts. What's yours?
Photography! (of course) My other hobbies (when I'm not busy raising a family and owning a business) include cycling, archery, and hiking
