There is nothing more beautiful than the first light of dawn. Early morning is a time that sighting wildlife is more likely, and photographing them in the warm glow of dawn often produces magical results. Growing up with a camera in my hand allowed me the freedom and creative license to capture the beauty that surrounded me. Looking back on those pictures, I always seemed to favor capturing nature and “wildlife” (generally my dogs and cats) and candid family photos. The connection that people make with my photography is always the best part of this new adventure.
