I've always had a camera in my hand. I remember in elementary, my mom bought me a disposable camera to take on the last day of school. I absolutely loved it. I remember taking pictures of everything- from teachers to my friends to the school building to even my desk. I wanted to capture everything and to remember my time in elementary school. I also remember in junior high most of my friends had a point and shoot camera and I always was the one setting up the shot or taking the picture. I longed for the day to have my own. For christmas one year I opened up point and shoot camera and I was thrilled! I took that camera everywhere- camping, the cemetery, cheer practice, literally everywhere. I enjoyed taking photos.
Fast forward to my first wedding anniversary. I expressed over and over to my husband how one day I would want a DSLR camera to take pictures with. After we went to dinner to celebrate our one year anniversary, he took me to the store and surprised me by buying me a camera! I was so giddy! I loved having a nicer camera than a point and shoot. I was always taking pictures and documenting life!
Now, one of my favorite past-times is looking at old images I've taken, even still my elementary disposable prints. When I had my first son, I began to realize that I wanted more from my images. I wanted to capture my son in the real raw beautiful moments. I started doing so much research online about how to take better images and how to use my camera. I spent hours and hours reading post and books on how do do so. After researching and even taking a photography class, I was on my way. I loved being able to get the images I wanted and be in control of my camera.
One day, one of my friends asked if I would take some pictures of her. Up until then, I had never taken someone's pictures before. After that little session, I knew there was no way of going back. I started dreaming about one day, if I became a photographer, I could have the chance to capture young love, growing families and their special moments with their children and giving them the joy that photos have always given me.
