AtC: Tell us about yourself?
KG: I'm a busy body, I feel like I must always be creating something. I have a loving husband and an adorable (yet sometimes crazy!) 2 year old.
AtC: When did you become interested in photography?
KG: I would say in high school is when I started to get more serious about it. I was photographer for the school yearbook and did some photocamp stuff.
KG: My mother. I remember going through the basement one day when I was younger and finding all these old prints my mother had taken of my father when they were in college and I just thought "I want to be able to do this."
AtC: Why is Photography important to you?
KG: Memories. Thats the long and short of it. Every picture reminds me of a time and place thats special to me.
AtC: What do you enjoy most about photography?
KG: Instant gratification (now that there is digital that is).
KG: The name itself tells you what makes it art. Photography translates to painting with light.
AtC: What influences you when you start taking pictures?
KG: That's a hard one. I just see something that interests me and go for it.
AtC: Why do enjoy doing what you do?
KG: Who wouldnt love being able to hold a memory
