I am a wife. A new mom. A dog-lover. A yogi. An avid traveler. The things that make me "me" have been the source some of my favorite work (including the one here of my (female) rescue dog, Elmer, when she was about 3 months old). My camera bag is usually my "carry-on" when I travel; my favorite part about any trip is looking back on the moments I was able to capture in places I never want to forget. The top item on my Bucket List is to visit all 50 states, and to date, I only have 4 left to visit. Among my favorites places are Moab, Utah; Eden, Utah; Lake Tahoe, California; the Oregon coast; Steamboat, Colorado; and Dubai, UAE (not a state, I know. But the first country to get a stamp in my passport, and an unforgettable journey).
