Welcome! Happy Spring and April Fool's Day!!! {Effingham, Illinois, Photographer}

Hi and Welcome to my new blog and website!  And happy April Fools Day!!! Hope you'll take a little time to poke around and see what's what. I'll be having giveaways all month long.  It's my way of saying "YAY SPRING!!!", having a little fun, spreading some love and getting my business name out into the universe. I hope you'll help me along.

Lets get this party started! I'm loving the spring weather, so the first giveaway will be very 'springy.  It includes a very cool celestial lollipop from Vintage Confections (the flavor is a surprise), a lemon lip balm from Gypsy's Bee, a bright, fun scrubby from Sassy Stitches, a bar of Almond Soap from Astoria, a notebook from Oh Studio!, a lavender doTERRA oil (one of my all time favorites), and last but not least a small 4x6 fine art, archival print from yours truly.

How could you win all these goodies?  It's simple.

1. Make sure you like My FB Page
2. Share the FB post that's associated with this blog post. 
3. Make sure you leave a comment on the FB post that you shared it and please make sure your shared post is set to 'public', otherwise I won't be able to see it.
4. Done

I'll end this particular giveaway tonight at midnight and announce the winner tomorrow! I personally don't like long wait times for giveaways, so I'm going to make all of them short and sweet.

Good luck and thank you so much to all my friends and followers.



OOPS....I forgot to mention, you need to be in the United States to win these giveaways.  Sorry International friends.  I do still love you, it's just those darn shipping costs!!!!

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape architect...at least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
