My name is Coleen, I am the heart and soul of Indie Pindie Photo. I have always enjoyed taking pictures, especially of the people in my life. My parents got me my very first camera for my 12th birthday, a Polaroid Instamatic and that was when I fell in love. It had 2 settings and I got instant results, what more could I ask for? Since then I have taken classes, read books, researched, and practiced my craft to no end.

At gatherings it is just expected that I will have a camera on me 99 percent of the time (my kids hide now when I pull it out). But, I feel extremely lucky every day to be doing what I love to do. I draw inspiration from my peers, fashion editorials, architecture and especially from Aaron Siskind, one of my favorite photographers of all time. He can some up the passion for photographs so much better than I can, so I will just borrow from him to sum it up.

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.
