I’m just an average gal…nothing too complicated. I’ve got a love for simple things…the great outdoors…dogs, cats, and every cuddly creature in between…and photography, of course.
I’m a 4th generation Wyoming native and love the natural beauty surrounding me every day here in my home state. Being able to share that beauty with others is a joy and a blessing.
Between 1988 and 1990, I attended the Colorado Institute of Art (now known as the Art Institute of Colorado) and graduated with a degree in Visual Communications. I’ve had a career in Graphic Design now for the past 28 years. I cannot believe it’s been that many years! Time gets away too fast!
In the past few years I’ve been able to blend my graphic design experience and love for photography and create note cards featuring my photos. It’s something I absolutely LOVE doing. It’s an enjoyable outlet…and something I hope to be able to do for many years to come.

~~the photos in this blog post were all captured with my iPhone…photos from my Canon T3i will be featured in another post to follow soon~~
As we were eating breakfast this morning, the clouds started rolling in along the top of Casper Mountain here in Casper, Wyoming. I love this view from our kitchen window. We are truly blessed to live where we do.
I knew the rolling clouds wouldn’t last long…so I grabbed my camera (Canon T3i), hopped in my Chevy Trailblazer I call “Blaze”, and took the short drive to a favorite area across the highway.
Just a short three and a half mile drive from our house, I had the area to myself, the meadolarks were singing, bluebirds were flying around, and the clouds continued to roll across the top of the mountain.
It was just a short photo excursion…but a great way to start the day and get away from things for a few minutes. And there’s no shortage of photo oportunities in this area…or any area…if you just learn to see them.
On my way back home…I stopped to take a photo of this fence post. As I composed the shot in my viewfinder, I noticed the vertebrae bone someone had placed at the top of the post! It made me laugh and say to myself “well, that’s cool!” Once again…something I’ve seen by just taking time to look and notice.
Thank you to whoever placed the bone there.
