Who I Am
As a wife and a mom (of a recent college grad - way to go Joey!) who was formerly in commercial real estate, taking pictures has been something that I always loved. When I purchased my first DSLR camera, photography became much more than just something I loved, but something I wanted to be committed to. Because of the influence of my grandfather, photography has an important place in my life for as long as I can remember. He was also passionate about taking pictures and would stop and take a picture anytime of anything and anywhere. Even back in the days of old kodachrome and the instamatic 110 film, he always seemed to have the newest and cutting edge (yet affordable) camera equipment of that time. Cameras, snapshots, and stacks of photo albums were a huge part of my childhood. One thing that stands out is that he would always tell us to "slow down" if he thought we were looking through pictures too fast. He wanted to make sure every part of the photo was noticed. I like to believe that the gift of photography that God gave to my grandfather, He also gave to me. I am a true believer that our best retrospect can be found in the pictures that we take.
