I have always loved photography, even as a child. My father bought me my first real camera for my 8th birthday. It was a 35mm Minolta that I really wish I still had. In high school and college, I always carried a camera with me, to capture those unforgettable memories. This was before everyone had a cell phone camera, so I was an oddity in those days.
Once I had children, my desire to capture every moment grew even more. I had a point and shoot camera with me at all times, and I have thousands of photos of my children through the years. In 2010, my family bought me my first Canon DSLR for Mother's Day. It was a Canon Rebel EOS starter camera.
In 2012, I finally decided to learn how to properly use it. I found an instructor, and I have taken numerous courses in camera settings, composition, and technique.
I have upgraded cameras since my first Canon Rebel. I now shoot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III. For sports photography, I use the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. My portrait and main go-to lens is the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM (nifty fifty) lens. I have other lenses that I do use, but these are the 2 lenses that I always have with me.
Photography is my main hobby. I practice whenever I get the chance, which is usually during my children's sports and events. I have gotten quite good at youth hockey photography. I practice on my children's teammates, and in exchange for that, I share my photos with their parents. If you are one of those parents, please see the gallery page for your photos.
Thank you for supporting my hobby!
