 My First Post, A Little Background Info, Meet Some of the Fam and Thank You for Stopping By!

Today I thought I would start the blog off with a personal post by sharing a little bit about myself.



I was born and raised in Southern California. I got my first camera when I was 9 yrs old, a brand new Brownie and I adored that camera. It sparked my life long affair with photography. I took some well posed images per my mother's instruction on how to use a camera and had them developed with my allowance money.

They were perfect for my mother... buuuuut I quickly learned that taking pictures without all that posing was a lot more fun and much more interesting much to my mother's dismay, after which she set down a list of do's and dont's in regards to photographing grown ups; i.e. her. She was even less happy when she found out what I was using my tape recorder for i.e. secretly hiding it and taping conversations of parental units and siblings.





I have really never been without a camera since! Well that is not exactly true...there was this one time when I was taking pictures, with my brand new Minolta, of my new husband's awesome water skiing maneuvers and the houseboat hit a wake and ... well you know what came next. My new Minolta and our vacation photos are still lying somewhere at the bottom of Lake Powell.

Growing up in California meant summers spent at the beach and snow on the mountains above the small city we lived in. Streets were safe to play on, we all knew our neighbors and everyone looked out for one another. Maybe that will come back someday.


I have gotten better at taking pictures and holding on to my camera. Close up, candid and product photography is my passion. I really do enjoy being a photographer. It is one of my great joys in life.  I will be sharing that joy with you on the blog because most of the photos showcased will be my own unless otherwise noted.

Growing up summers in our house were all about the sun, fun and the ocean. We loved it and continued that with our kids, who didn't like it and our grandchildren who absolutely loved it.

What does all this have to do with a home and design blog?


I am so glad you asked? 

My life experiences and special moments in time make me who I am ... good or bad. They fuel the soul and propel us to where we are supposed to be, when we are supposed to be there.
