My 9-year-old took this picture of me while testing out a lighting scenario. This was after trying to get one in focus after an hour of trying. I think that’s why I look a little grumpy. LOL! I have 5 children that cause utter and total chaos and I love most every second of it. I started taking photos when my 12-year-old son was born. We took him to Kiddie Kandids for photos and then had pictures printed for his birth announcements, which at the time, you were not given your files, but rather you were forced to print through their store. So when we ran out of announcements, I decided to take matters into my own hands and take my own newborn photos and have them printed at Walmart. Thus began my love and passion for photography. My family comes first and foremost in my life. Second to that, I have a need to create beautiful things. My life has taught me to have compassion and understanding for others. Now that I am able to, my files are given to my customers to print as they see fit although I still recommend printing through a professional printing service because the prints will just plain look BETTER. I also offer professional printing services of both canvas and paper prints in my studio. I stretch every canvas and print every photo myself. Everyone should have the opportunity to afford professional photos.
