My name is Carol and I live in Simi Valley, California. I'm married and we have four boys. In addition to my immediate family, two my son's friends live with us and my brother-in-law lives with us, so I am the only female in a house with 8 men. Even my dog (Rufus) is male! I started taking photos of my boys sporting events, and my interest in photography grew from there. My goal for photography is to take great pictures, and become a professional which I am on my way to doing this year. I shoot with a Canon 7d.
