     “You don’t take a photograph; you make it”

                                     Ansel Adams


I would add to that truth spoken by Ansel Adams. When you lose your breath upon seeing snow gracefully covering the boughs of fir trees and individually encasing each needle of the pine branch you whisper your Thanks to God who created that beauty.

From the age of ten I have tried to capture our beautiful world on film.

As an educator I was gifted with many children and teenagers. As they grew up many of them asked me to photograph their weddings and a number of parents ask me to photograph their children’s reception of the sacraments. Again I was in the presence of beautiful young people in very special moments and given the privilege of capturing these treasured occasions on film.

Photography has given me the gift of sharing in the Divine Creation of God!
