I’m an award winning photographer, published in literary journals once named Maryland Photographer of the year.   I share Sanctuary Studios with my husband international artist Hilmar Gottesthal painter/sculptor and occasionally other guest artists.  I offer “Art of Photography Workshops” (scavenger hunt,   2 hr. model shoot) also private sessions.  I’m a candid photographer, drawn to photographing people.   You have to be quick; people move, the light changes, and the magic you saw is gone.  I watch, hoping I’ll be rewarded with one of those random moments when life creates art and I was there to capture it.
