About - thimbeephotography

Thank You for Visiting Thimbee Photography!

While I have tried several different types of photography I find I keep coming back to subjects in their natural environment. I find that to take a good image I need to “have a heart” for it. My passion is really for landscapes, sunrises, sunsets, flowers, and birds. So this is the direction I have decided to go.

My husband accompanies me on my photo shoots and has taken me to some beautiful places. We have explored Florida, California, and of course my home state of Michigan. We have gotten up before dawn, fought bugs, cold and even met with an alligator a few feet away from us in the wild. This is why I am able to have such a variety of photos and subjects.

I started out learning about photography by taking a basic photography class at a local college and reading books. After learning the technical details I spent many hours just taking photographs. After that I began taking hours and hours of webinars learning how some of the best photographers did it. While leaning so many new things was overwhelming at times, like how to use my camera, computer, how to edit, use new software, etc., I am now able to enjoy the process of making photographs.

I am a Christian and my family is most important to me and I also love working with young children at my church. I am currently a Sunday School teacher to some delightful second graders.
