"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." Aaron Siskind
My name is Denise Peterson, and I want to be your photographer.
I love taking pictures. I asked for and received a Canon point-and-shoot camera from my parents for Christmas one year, and as "they" say -- the rest is history. My dad passed shortly after that, and I reflected often on the photos of him that I created with that camera... and realized the power of photos and love. I've been my extended family's unofficial photographer ever since. I've captured special moments for family and friends, as well as random moments of beauty that caught my eye. Memories of my college experiences, vacation moments, travel adventures, candid special family moments -- I've captured a little bit of it all with enthusiasm, humor, style, and most of all, love. Now I keep my beloved nieces, nephews and cousins in camera sight, much to their dismay. They'll thank me when they are older....maybe. LOL.
Besides taking pictures, I have a couple of other passions....I am a proud graduate of Clemson University twice over (Go Tigers!) where I root ferociously for my Tigers in all things, and most especially in football. I love to travel, and one of my bucket list items is to visit all 50 states of the United States -- I already have 33 of the 50 under my belt. Finally, I love watching and playing tennis, and have all four Grand Slam tournaments on my "to-do" list.
