newbie

There are two things that I have always been obsessed with.. pictures and candles. The picture thing must have came from my mom, because ever since I can remember she would always take a ton of pictures of my brother and I. Little did I know that my dad also did photography in the military, which is way cool. I can't believe I never knew that before. & the candle thing, who doesn't love candles? 

Recently I decided to pursue my love for photography. I really enjoy getting our family pictures taken every few months and always loved the idea of starting my own type of business (owning/working at a little coffee shop is also a dream!) it is definitely something that I enjoy doing and once I'm done with school (not for photography, imagine that) I'll be able to dedicate more time doing it. 


I have had really a really good response from people here, but I'm still working on getting my name out there. Several people have asked for business cards and I had nothing to hand them. The Stationery Boutique hooked it up with this personalized stamp that I am still swooning over. I got the cards off Etsy because they were used from recycled materials and that is just awesome. I also have a plan to get some white cards and do a little watercolor painting on them before they are stamped. I'd be lying if I didn't think I was legit now.

buttttt I haven't quite figured out what I want to specialize in, I really love the idea of concentrating on one thing but I am just starting out so I'm still dabbling in all the areas. I do have the sweetest, wiggliest, prettiest little lady to practice on.
