My husband was my first influence into the photography world. He would always be taking pictures and giving me copies of what he had done. I thought how beautiful it was to document your life this way. My husband bought me my first camera that same year, a 35mm. For the next 20 years I used my three beautiful children for inspiration. Always having my camera ready for what they would do next. With children it is easy to be inspired, they are the magic of life happening right before your eyes. Now they have grown and I have passed along my hobby to them. They come home with tons of pictures from their travels and we get to enjoy them together. A picture is really your only link to the past. It can provoke emotion, wonder, and it is the closest thing to really being there. Today my pictures are mostly of my racing teams, and other teams that I now have the pleasure of recording their lives...racing weekends.... They have given me some of the most enjoyable moments of my life. Thank you all.....
