Rebecca Nelson, a 40- something self-taught photographer working in Northern Illinois, has a great appreciation of the everyday beauty that surrounds her.
Her very supportive husband recognized that in her and bought her first DSLR camera for her as a Christmas gift in 2009. She has been happily snapping away since. She is also the mother of 13-year old boy/girl twins who are often the subject of her work. Although now that they have entered the teen years, getting them to agree to model has become a bit more challenging.
