Hello and Thanks for visiting:) I live in the United States in the pacific North west (a little north of Portland Oregon.) I'm a Mother of 3 beautiful boy's, a wife to my sweet and patient hubby, a hairstylist, and a dancer at heart with a passion for capturing images of all things. I'll admit it I'm a photo hoarder! I started getting into photography when I was probably 12 or 13. I've always loved taking pictures. When I was in Highschool I worked as an assistant for my photography teacher and spent my time mixing chemicals for the dark room and getting it all to myself for two periods a day. It was definitely one of my favorite places to be. That was almost 20 years ago. After 3 kids I'm finally ready to start putting more focus on my love of being behind the camera! I don't have any real formal training except high school and some classes I took at Portland Community college but I love challenging myself with new ideas and 365 project is a way to get me inspired to keep it up:)
