I'm not really sure how or when I got interested in photography, but I'm pretty sure it was somewhere around the time when I was in 6th grade. Those are my earliest pictures that I have and that I know I have taken. I have always loved to take pictures as well as look at them whether they are mine or someone else's. It is something I have always truly enjoyed. I love the opportunity to look back at the memories of my past to see how far where I have been and how far I have come.
When I grow up (someday), I would love to be a photographer. It is something that has always interested me. I love to take pictures of my daughter, my friend's children, animals, nature, pretty much anything.
Currently, I am a teacher, so that will have to do for the time being. I am happily married now for almost 7 years. My husband loves to look at my photos, but says that I take too many. I'm really glad digital photgraphy is here! We have a beautiful, almost 2 year old, daughter named Peyton. I also have a 4-legged, hairy sidekick named Frisco.
