Robin is a member of Professional Photographers of North Carolina, South Eastern Photographers Association, and President of the Bass Lake Photo Club. She attends several conventions, seminars, and classes every year, taught by award winning master photographers from around the world. She is constantly updating her professional skills so that she can offer her customers the best in portraiture and art.

Robin thinks of her clients as her friends. She stated, "I like to get to know people before I take their portraits. I want the images to really "portray" them as who they are inside and out. Everyone has beautiful qualities, and I want that to show."

Robin enjoys playtime with her family, scuba diving, underwater photography, travel, boating, water skiing, hiking, learning anything new, and flying with her husband in light aircraft.
