Sometimes it's about starting over. In the photography business, it's called rebranding. I lived for many years in the San Francisco Bay area.
While I was there, I owned and operated a successful pet portrait and stock photography business. I loved the Bay Area, especially all
the people I met, the friends I made, and the photos I took, but home would put out a beacon, calling to me. I have lived many places and
travelled all over the world, but home would always call to me. Home, for me, will always be a small town east of Cincinnati called Milford,
Ohio. Years ago, I moved to central Ohio, for many reasons, but the most important one being my mom, the person who inspired me to pursue
photography. She was very ill. My beautiful mother eventually lost her battle with breast cancer and I will always be thankful
for her unconditional love and support. So, what's the deal with Exit 57? Well, Exit 57 is the exit number off the freeway
I take to get home. No matter where I have lived, or where I have travelled, I always knew when I reached Exit 57, I was home.
When I took that exit, I was heading to Milford, to my family, to my mom,to my home...
The name honors my history, my family and my mom. It evokes acceptance, support, love and warmth. All the things I hope to bring to my
clients and their families.
