After dabbling in the commercial photography world, I slowly realized it just wasn't for me. Being greatly influenced by Annie Leibowitz and Hans Neleman, I began to approach my photography with a more artistic quality. I began to create photographic still life photos in my home studio using a large format camera. Later, my husbands band grew more and more popular, and I found myself photographing bands. Photographing live bands was clearly a passion I needed to develop. My love of music and photography continue to grow, and I continue to approach photography with a more artistic method.
