My name is Brenda-Lee and photography has been a passion of mine since I was in elementary school.  My very first camera was a Brownie that belonged to my mom.  Indeed, that was “many moons ago”!!   When I think back at how I had to load the film in that old camera, I just shake my head and laugh.

My photography has certainly come a long way – from instamatic cameras and Polaroid cameras, to 8mm movie cameras with reel-to-reel projectors, to VHS camcorders, to 35mm film SLR cameras, to underwater cameras and disposable cameras… to this AMAZING digital era!  You now push a button and voilà!!

I am a freelance photographer/videographer – a single mom of two beautiful, grown daughters – who now has more time to pursue this passion.  I travel nowhere without my camera(s) in tow.  I see the world through the lens and constantly want to capture it on “film”.  Preserving those special moments in time is so satisfying and so rewarding to me!
