~ a mother's art photography ~


A little over a year ago I received a DSLR camera for Christmas from my husband. I got it because I wanted to take better pictures of my children, little did I know at that time that I'd fall madly in love with photography.





As a child and teenager I loved art, and was frequently painting, drawing, sewing or creating. I remember getting frustrated because I sewed many of my own clothes and I couldn't find fabric that I liked. I'd design fabric in my head. I come from a very creative family. But instead of majoring in art in college, I became a nurse because I also loved science and I wanted to help people. I specialized in peds and NICU(neonatal ICU) nursing and did so because I loved caring for children and their families. As a nurse I made a difference and though I don't work as a nurse now, I'll always be one.


I became a full time mommy to Grace when we adopted her in 2003...I never thought I'd be a mother again with all my infertility issues. It was a life long dream come true for me to be a mother to a daughter. It is Grace and Will that inspire me to take pictures...all kinds of pictures.
And it is my love of children and art that led me to photography.
And now I can share my love of photography with others. The greatest compliment I've been given is that when I take pictures, I 'shoot from the heart.'

Congrats on making it all official Gail! It's been apparent to me that this was a likely path for you, every time I look at your photos. You've got talent! :) I've still only got my client preview blog up and going, not the website yet. Ugh. It all takes a lot of work!
