Ever since I could remember, I have loved taking pictures. In high school I would take my point-and-shoot camera to school to take pictures of my friends and teachers. I even took pictures of some people I didn’t know but, as a result of my pictures, became good friends with.
I truly caught the bug when I bought my first 35mm. I went on a trip with a bunch of friends and took roll after roll of film. Everyone wanted me to take pictures of them at different sites we visited. When we returned home, we had a picture party where everyone came together and reminisced over our great trip.
I loved hearing the “Ooo’s” and “Aww’s” of friends and family members as they viewed my photos. I enjoyed the opportunity to capture special moments. It was an honor and privilege to take memorable pictures during special occasions. It was my goal to learn more about photography and how to take pictures that would be cherished forever.
Now, as a professional photographer, I still love the happy responses people give when I show them their pictures. I enjoy even more capturing the moment. I take great pride in knowing that I have given them something they will cherish forever.
