Today was so much fun! I had the pleasure of hosting a little get together with some other Ohio photogs that I have connected with through facebook and chit chat about business, family, cameras and life. I love that we are able to help each other out and learn from each other, but I also just love having someone to talk to that shares my passion for photography. Today a bunch of the girls were wanting to play with studio lights and so I volunteered my studio space and lights and some adorable little models. I knew Madyson would be happy to help out but it turned out that Myleigh wanted in on the action too so here is one that I got of the two of them before Myleigh decided she was done.
I wish I could start by telling you that photography has been my dream and some cute story about my very first camera, but honestly growing up my dream was to be a MOM. I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a Mom, I wanted a dozen children or more! And while the dozen part has changed, the dream of being a MOM has not, that is my greatest joy. I have 4 beautiful children that bring me such happiness and leave me speechless and amazed. I have twins that are 8 a very active 3 year old and a new precious little baby too! It was through my first love that I found my second love. As a mom I loved taking my children to get their pictures taken and after my third baby was born I decided to see what I could do with a "good" camera so I picked up my first DSLR camera in May of 2010 and fell in love with the art of photography!
Besides loving my children and photography a couple of other things about me are.....I LOVE my family and live next door to my brother and my parents and I am secretly hoping that my children also build a house on "the family compound" when they grow up, I am a diet coke addict and eat way to many sweets in a day, I shop too much and save too little, I believe in dreaming big and living each day to the fullest, I have known the heartache of losing a child and the joy of God's miracles first hand, I love girls nights out as well as quiet nights in with my family, If I can find a good book I lose myself in it and then miss my new friends when its over, and I am completely happy with where my life has been and where it is going!
