I have a slight obsession with documenting everything.

In addition, I love the art of photography, and love to take pictures, so you will usually see my posts accompanied with photos. I'm not a professional by any means, but I love seeking out the beauty around me,  and documenting the memories in my own life. Everyone says I will forget each stage of life as a new one comes along, but I hope these photos will help me not to forget.

I am a Canon girl, and shoot with my Rebel XSi body and 50mm 1.4 lens. Someday I hope to upgrade, but this equipment has served me well for several years. I also own a kit lens (18-55mm), but I rarely use it.

I hope this inspires you to photograph your own life, and to also see the beauty that is around you. It's there, you just have to look for it.

I am also available for hire for a small fee. Contact me for details. dutiestodelights (at) gmail (dot) com
