Photo of Dana Miller by Steve Pruitt 2007

photo by Dana Miller at the AWT contest 2014

Been a photo enthusiast for over 38 years but have focused on it the past 8 years. My former husband Steve Pruitt passed away in 2008. He left me all of his cameras and a library of his photographs both digital and films of his favorite places catching windsurfing in Gold Beach, the desert magnificence of Joshua Tree National Park, and all over New Mexico, Utah and Idaho. That camera bounty kept me busy taking photos and then I wanted to upgrade to a full frame camera so I bought the Canon EOS 6D with video 3 years ago and have not looked back...except with gratitude for the mentoring of Dana Miller to bring much inspiration to my work shooting him and all other important events in my life. I am especially enjoying the learning from NYIP (New York Institute of Photography) with a degree due to finish this summer 2016.

Steve was published in June of 2008 in Windsurfing Magazine with a photo of Dana Miller. I feel deep gratitude for not only his enduring love for 38 years, but for his photographs which keep me inspired to continue his legacy while building my own. Have been in Windsport magazine with the cover shot on my Front Page, courtesy of Dana Miller. 

My specialties also include windsurfing, portraits, flowers, pets, gardens, birds, nature landscapes and special events.

Prefer to be outdoors, dancing on the beach. Passionate about music and art, video and whole foods. Enjoy friends, reading, music, singing, painting, cooking, editing and watching the occasional movie. Recently have begun Stand Up paddling on my lake I live on, and nearby ones since the core work is exceptional and you see nature in a different perspective with water lilies and many birds.

With over 50 years of work experience in sales, management and marketing I enjoy working with people who know what they want and like.
