Welcome to my blog!
Sometimes I think I'm living in the wrong decade. I am a stay-at-home mom and wife who loves to take photos, cook, sew and garden. Just please don't call me Martha Stewart.
While I have always had an interest in the creative arts, my interest in photography started in my early 20's. It was always a hobby, a class I took in the evenings, something I squeezed in on the weekends. I bought my first SLR with money I earned from my 'real job', and yes, it used film. My real passion for photography took off when I had children. Children are such fun subjects. Such joy to capture a face, a look, a moment to treasure forever. I'll never forget the camera salesman who stared at me in disbelief when I bought my professional grade digital SLR camera to "just take pictures of your kids?!" In the past few years I've come to embrace the camera as a career, taking photos for my children's schools, friends' holiday cards and a local mother's group. It's ok to have a job you love, a creative outlet that won't necessarily pave the road with riches. I'm finally good with that.
