“After practicing pediatrics for 20 years, I retired and started traveling with my husband of 55 years, Cary. I picked up a Nikon camera and thus my new adventure began! We spent two summers exploring Alaska, particularly Homer and Kodiak. The summer of 2018 I hopped on a floater plane in Kodiak with a small group of photographers and travelled to Katmai National Park and Preserve where I was fortunate enough to follow a small family of grizzly bears, a mama and her two coys (cubs of the year). This family relaxed and went on with their normal routine, letting me enjoy the intimate exchange of unadulterated love and silly antics. It wasn’t until these isolated months of COVID that I had time to review all of my RAW photos. I fell in love with this family once again and decided to share them in a book, Family is So Special, that I published on September 1! It is currently available on Amazon as well as the New Dominion Bookshop on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, the Rappahannock Art League in Kilmarnock, Va, and The Islander Bookshop in Kodiak, Alaska!”
