Hi, my name is Mavis JoRay.  I am originally from Southern Minnesota, so was raised in a small farming community.  I moved to the Kansas City area to attend college back in 1987 and decided to make it my home.  I am married with 5 wonderful adult children: 3 biological; 2 step children and two grandchildren. 

 I am an energetic adventurous person, who love's to spend time outdoors enjoying nature through camping; razor riding; hiking; riding motorcycle; canoeing; traveling to other countries.

Some of my biggest accomplishments in life have been working abroad in other cultures and learning from them. 

  Photography has always been a  passion of mine ever since I can remember.  I have worked as a yearbook editor in college; had a dark room in my house for awhile at one time when film was still the way to capture moments.

I enjoy capturing real life moments in time and not just statued poses. I feel that this way you capture the true feeling and emotion of that moment in time.  I enjoy taking pictures in all different types of photography especially for my own enjoyment and challenge. One of my life's goals is to have my work published.

Please check out my albums to see some of my past work.
