A collaboration of artistic minds showing at Amavida

The aspiring photographer took the advice.

"I always have my camera with me now (a new Cannon) and it has become a passion," she said.

Conley said although she did not always aspire to become a photographer, she has always been a visual person and artistically inclined.

"I find this area so incredibly beautiful that it's easy to be inspired," she said. "I am always aware of the weather and lighting and how it effects the landscape, how things appear, and how light hits and its effect and shadows. I feel that becoming a photographer is an evolution for me." 

Conley set up an LLC and has received a lot of encouragement and support from family, friends, and co-workers as she has stepped out, she said.

Her work hangs in the office at Davis Properties in Seagrove, where she is office manager, and the Realtors give her framed prints as closing gifts. She has also sold some right off the walls to those who come in, and they are available through her website at www.jconleyimages.com.

Conley and her family moved here in 1993 from northern California where her husband was stationed as a Navy diver. They built a home in Inlet Beach in 1994.
