My name is Shari Ameling.  I have been taking photos since I was very young.  My first camera was a Minolta film camera that I bought from B&H in New York when I was 12 years old.  I was so excited when I received it. 

I am grown up now, work as a software tester, and am married to my wonderful husband.  We live in western Michigan which is a compromise between the city and country. 

I love taking photos of places that I go to as well as what is in my own backyard.  My favorite photos are from trips to Alaska, the Tetons, Yellowstone, and the beach in Florida.  I think the mountains and oceans are beautiful and I could stare at them all day.

I notice things that others don’t take the time to see. I see the beauty in the details.

I hope that you enjoy seeing the world through my eyes, as much as I enjoy sharing it with you.
