I'm "that" family member. I'm the one that has the boxes full of old family photos. I have boxes and boxes of vintage film, slides and old photos... Documenting other peoples lives has been the most natural career path for me. I can't imagine doing anything else and I'm very grateful to all of you that trust me with your family's memories.
My career started with a gift from my friend's mom. She gave me a book: "The Joy of Photography" by Kodak with an inscription that urged me to make photography my career. Two photo labs, 10 years as someone else's assistant and now 18 years with my own studio and here I am---still taking photos and loving it even more now than I did then.
