A note from Angie:
I grew up in Shelburne Vermont, and from the start, always loved birds, animals and sea creatures. I would spend hours looking through National/International Wildlife Federation magazines and any other wildlife magazine I could get my hands on. While many of my friends had posters of heartthrobs, bands, or heroes hanging on their bedroom walls, mine were completely covered with wildlife photos. As for books, my library consisted of picture books, like "Birds of the World" and "The World's Wildlife in Color." (Both of which I still have, among several others.) At a young age, I quickly discovered a love and talent I had for painting. Needless to say, the majority of my pieces were of birds, animals or fish. (Again, many of which are still displayed in my home today.) Taking photos was also a hobby I had always enjoyed. Especially when I found myself among the beauty of Nature. Having grown up with film, I learned at an early age to take many photos, and then hope for a couple of good shots. That always seemed to work well for me, but I admit, I do love digital and all of the obvious benefits it provides. Like painting, I've never had formal training in photography. I've simply learned by asking questions, listening to the critique from professionals, accepting advice from everyone, and by practicing and learning from my own mistakes. I know I've missed many great photos over the years, but I also feel I HAVE captured many more incredible photos to share. I don't claim to be the best photographer, but I do guarantee all of my photos are taken with love and hold a piece of my heart within each of them.
Currently, I live on a hill in the woods in Milton with my other half Jeff, our three pups Harvey, Dugan, and Charlie, and our kitty, Bago. We like to call it "Our little slice of Heaven" which along with my pack, continues to fuel my Soul, and keep my camera clicking.
Thank you so much for taking time to look at my photos. I hope they bring the warmth and serenity to your heart, as was intended.
