Lila Lee Taft
Lila is a retired nurse with a new focus - photography. She started a small business in 2003 after finding her pictures of the Monticello trumpeter swans so well received by her friends and peers. The business has grown over the past 14 years. She now offers her photography on canvas as well as framed. Many of the pictures have been made into note cards which have become a top seller.
The world of Minnesota has long been at the center of her photography efforts: from lady slippers and loons, eagles and deer, lighthouses and butterflies, to barns and tractors. She loves to travel and since retirement has combined travelling with her love of photography. Exciting trips have included travel to Canada to photograph wolves, Alaska, Southwest USA including the balloon fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Northwest USA, Northeast USA including a variety of lighthouse photos, and Ireland. In St Paul and in Ireland Lila created photo shows for International Public Health Nursing conferences and toured Ireland for some interesting photographs.
She loves to do custom work which can run from looking for that elusive photo for a customer to portraits of children, families, high school graduates, homes or property, and a variety of school activities such as First Communions.
Lila shoots with a Canon Digital SLR camera and several zoom lenses.
