***********************************************

Welcome to Elusive Dreams Photography!

I have been working to establish my photography for awhile now, gradually learning techniques and purchasing gear that helps to produce outstanding images.  Photography has always been a dream of mine, something that had eluded me for many years.  I finally was allowed the opportunity to follow my dream when my loving and very sweet husband purchased my first digital semi-professional camera for me back in 2003.  Ever since that time, I have strived to succeed at this elusive dream of mine...now, I hope to share in the experience with select models, or other photographers who seek a dream and hope to find their path to success as well.

Sheri
