My name is Laurette Beliveau and I am a native New Englander, born and raised in CT. I am a very passionate newcomer to the world of photography and more specifically to DSLR photography. My aspirations are to some day have my work published, maybe win/place a photography contest on occasion, and perhaps even become a true semi-pro photographer in the future. More importantly, my hope is that I can capture the beauty of the world through my photography and thus foster understanding of the importance of biodiversity, conservation and preservation. Everything is connected.
