A Little About Me...

Profile Picture _ NI.jpg

At an early age I developed a love for photography. Once I became a parent, the once hobby became more.  My kiddo's lives have been well documented to say the least. My college years began at Montana State University and finished at Washington State University. I have a bachelor's degree in Food Science. The easiest way to explain food science is that it is the chemistry behind food. I am not a chef or a dietician. I once ate Cheetos on a hotdog smothered in ketchup and mustard. You may ask "What does food science have to do with photography?". Nothing! My college friends can tell you though that I was always taking pictures (and that was before digital cameras, cell phones, and social media). I was taking "selfies" long before they were the fad. 

Following college I spent 14 years in the food industry. Jobs included R&D at a cookie factory to Quality Manager at a bread company. During those 13 years I married my high school sweetheart and became a mom of 3. Through the years I have developed my photography skills and found that a hobby has become more of passion. I am extremely excited as I proceed through this next chapter and capture treasured moments for all time.
