Share with us your favorite Forbeyon album and why. What materials/ options do you choose?

My favorite is the Flush Mount Series. Most of my clients go with the 10×10 but occasionally one will go with an 11×14 which is my favorite. My clients love the linen texture and always go with at least one cameo.

What inspired you to be a photographer?

That’s hard. For as long as I can remember if I was not taking pictures it was all I could think about. It has almost been like an obsession since I was very young.

Share with us your favorite image and why.

My favorite image was one I did not even take and unfortunately it got lost in our last move. It is a polaroid image of my youngest daughter in kindergarten taken by her teacher. She was cutting out something on a piece of paper and the look of determination in her eyes was fascinating. Every time I looked at that image I was so happy that she captured it and captured the true little girl she was.
