I started in photography after having four children of my own. I wanted tons of pictures of them but didn't have the money to spend on the professional portraits. So, I decided to get a diploma in photography and take my kids' portraits myself. I just love it. The portrait on my profile is my granddaughter. I have read tons of books on photography, taken many more classes, and realized you never stop learning in this field of work. I hope to share some of my education with others like me.
