I am a native Mississippian and resident of Madison County in MS.  I have a passion for outdoor photography. I graduated from USM in Hattiesburg,MS in elementary education. My husband,John, and I have been married for 33 years. We are blessed with one daughter, Hope, who is also a graduate of USM. We love to travel, especially out West, where we enjoy the beauty of the mountains and Western scenery. My most wonderful vacation memories are of  photographing much of this glorious region of our country. It was through these vacation photographs of the West, my husband discovered I had a talent and a God given natural eye for photography. John encouraged me to pursue that talent and not bury it. I am totally self taught both with my shooting and editing of my work and have no formal photography training. My work also reflects my roots and love of the South. I am very thankful to have published two totally unique Mississippi photography books to help preserve my love for southern heritage in a special way.
