Photography allows me the ability to seek out God's miracles. Every flower, every tree, every creature is a reminder of His grace and love, and provides the ability to share this with others.

I am inspired to capture that rare photo that can bring a smile, instill hope, touch a heart and take you to a place of peace if only for a moment. If I can do just one of these, then I will have accomplished what I was purposed to do.
