Where do I begin?  First, I never planned on being a photographer...I was a freelance journalist in Chicago then later pursued a career as a paralegal.  After a number of years and many prayers, photography found me and changed my life.  Many have called what I do a "Gift" and while I always shy away from that word, I cannot deny that God blessed me with something very special to share with the world.  If you have been on session with me then you know exactly what I'm referring to and you know me well enough to know that I give all honor and glory to God.  Without Him none of this would be possible.

"I can't imagine my life without a camera... without a subject... without that moment when you know you have captured something far more than an expression. It's not about all the images I take during a session... it's about that "one" you can't forget." - Barbara J. Garland
