My name means "Full of Life" and I guess that just about sums me up. I was born in Mexico, finding my way to America at the age of 2...was adopted twice and by the age of 6 I was officially residing in Wisconsin. I was raised on a farm, spent my days in the woods and exploring the creek areas surrounding the property. Never had a camera, never thought about owning one my entire youth. In my mid-twenties, my now-husband gave me my first camera, a simple 7 megapixel Sanyo point and shoot camera. Things changed drastically after that. I started posting photos of my pets, like everyone else, and friends remarked that I took photos "differently"....through support and kind criticisms, I was able to develop my love for photography into a passion that I wake up and go to sleep thinking about. I will take a photo of just about anything my eyes land on, anything that catches my fancy, strikes me as odd, or is just plain fascinating. Making memories for families is one of my favorites, grateful that they appreciate the love I put into my work. Thank you for being here with me, I hope you continue to marvel at this beautiful world and keep sharing the beauty with the rest of us.
