What’s your story? Are you a pro-photographer, or a weekend snapshooter, or something in between? Definitely, “something in between”. I’ve always loved photography & taken many photos, but it wasn’t until the world of digital that my interest became an obsession.

What’s your favorite thing to photograph?
Besides my children, which are my greatest inspiration, I would say portraits or candids where I like to capture emotion or a sparkle in others!

What would you say to someone else about the Lizzy’s Fresh Label contest?
It’s an honor to be chosen for the label, but once I tasted Lizzy’s coffee, I really felt like a winner for how great it tastes! Plus, my daughter turned 7 this May which was the same month that her 1 year old birthday cake photo was chosen so, the timing was awesome & bragging rights have been pretty cool, too!

Oh yes, what’s your favorite way to drink your coffee?
Besides brewed with cinnamon & a splash of cream, a simple pleasure I greatly appreciate is that first sip in the morning as I sit at the computer to read the news, catch up on Facebook & Flickr, then post-process my photos … a delightful combination! An additional treat I occasionally indulge in is that of an afternoon pick-me-up blended Frap. Mmm … delish!
