I have always been a very creative, artsy type person, especially with photography. As a young child, I can remember my Daddy handing me his camera and letting me take the last few pictures that were left on the roll of film. I would run to my room and set up a “studio” and I would pull all of my dolls and stuffed animals out and get them ready to be photographed. My Daddy always laughed when we would get the pictures back because there were all my dolls ready for their debut. Like most childhood memories, that one faded and my life took a different direction.
I became a Mommy and all mommies know what it means when you say “there is no love like a mother’s love for her children”. After my daughter was born, I wanted to capture each and every moment of every day, as she was growing and changing so much so quickly. That childhood memory of my baby dolls came back to me and there I was again, setting up a place for the perfect photos. I took at least three rolls of film each week to be developed and that still wasn’t enough.
Having people compliment my photographs was reassuring but I wasn’t sure that I wanted to go the professional route until it became the only thing that I could think about. I looked to God for the encouragement that I needed to get the show on the road. With lots of studying, learning, and practicing, I finally feel like I am using the talent that God so graciously blessed upon me. To me, photography is an art form and should be cherished for years to come. It makes me happy to think that years from now, families will still be admiring my ability to capture
