I took traditional, B&W, film photography for three years in high school ...and then during my first semester at Austin Community College. I also took digital photography classes for two semesters after that, but had a hard time switching from film to a DSLR camera. Once I moved on to Texas State, I put photography on hold, as I changed majors from photography to fashion merchandising and then finally on to business management. Once I graduated and had Tory, I picked up my dusty camera and started taking photos again. When you stop doing something for a really long time, it takes a while before you get back on track. The only way I can "find my way again" is to keep snapping and snapping until I find my groove. I don't think I have found it quite yet, but I know that someday it will just show up and surprise me. I love photography and I am glad that I got back into it. Having a child helped me because I don't have a lot of pictures of myself growing up so I didn't want to wake up one morning and realize that I have no photos of my child when she was small. I take quite a lot of photos during the day, Tory poses for some, cries in the others & sometimes will sneak into the frame- like a typical photo-bomber. Her little appearances make me smile though and turn my photos into something a little more special.
