FAQ....Me...

You've already seen these now that I've put my little Welcome blurb under my flash header...but I thought I'd post them anyway and tell you a little bit about myself. I've received a few FAQ emails recently, asking about ME (of all things). So I will take this opportunity to chat a little bit....

First of all...as I'm sure I've mentioned a million times before, I hate having my photo taken. As in...I see a lens-I turn my head and hide-kind of hate. I'm trying to be better, but it's tough when I'm used to being the one behind the camera. So...the only person I really allow to take my picture, is my daughter...whose 5. :) She LOVES to risk the life of my 5D and use the 'big camera' to take photos. And she totally mimicks me when she does it. Everything from the way she holds the camera to what she says when she uses it. It's so cute that I end up laughing while I watch her shoot, and struggle to fit the camera in her tiny hands. Plus, I don't mind posing for her since she's FIVE, and always doing the same for me. So...in hopes of grabbing a few new photos for my site, and a new brochure, I allowed the near death of my beloved camera today when she asked if she could play with it. I gave her 5 minutes to shoot me while my son climbed all over my back (many little hands cloned out of these photos). I managed to get a few keepers out of the bunch and spent part of the afternoon making myself look presentable (aka lot's of photoshop). Maybe I will get brave one day and post a before and after.

Other than that there isn't much to tell you about me. I am 28 years old, and I plan to stay that way from now on. I will be celebrating my next birthday as 28, plus 1. It just sounds better. I am married, and have been for almost 7 years. Wow that is crazy to say that, or write it, out loud. I have two gorgeous kids who are both under age 6 and I have a large extended family that I am extremely close to. I like to read, like to go to the movies, and love to take photos...of just about anything.

That should do it for ME info for now, don't ya think? :) That is...if you made it this far into the post. ;)

(Oh...also, I feel the need to mention that I don't have anything stuck in my teeth in that first photo. I have a tiny diamond in that tooth that I've had since I was about 16. I keep trying to decide if I should take it out. Anyway...just so you know that I did floss before these photos).

you are so beautiful - why hide behind the camera all the time? let your daughter work for a while... maybe buy her a cheaper camera though - yikes!
