That’s me, Mel 🙂
I do have a professional head shot, but it’s probably better to use one that will allow you to recognize me if you see me in real life. (photo credit to my son)
I’m a hoarder. Not piles of stuff – mostly just memories and emails, but it is a problem. I’m addicted to stories, whether my own or others’. The first step is admitting it, but I have no plans to move on to any more steps.
I couldn’t stop taking pictures if I tried. It’s an obsession where I feel the need to capture all the good so it isn’t lost forever. I’ve been like this since elementary school – from Ektralite to Polaroid, Disk to disposable, SLR to now with my DSLR and go anywhere iPhone & GoPro.
I love music, especially live. I love to dance. I’m not great, but that doesn’t stop me — even when the kids cover their faces and roll their eyes (I feel like they should be more impressed with Floss and Moonwalk skills – for an almost 50-year-old, my skills are pretty impressive).
I photograph the happy things — the optimistic and colorful, the breathtaking beauty of nature and the overwhelming magic of everyday moments. I photograph those things for which I am grateful and I am grateful for the gift to photograph those things.
