    How long have you been interested in Photography? Forever.... My father was a photographer and I aspire to live up to his talents.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I love shooting people. I just did my first photoshoot with my brother and his wife and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    What/who inspires you? My father is my biggest inspiration. He died when I was 10 and I think looking into his photos is like looking into him.

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: No, I'm still too novice.

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? Hmmm here's a nice portrait of my boys

    Nope. I went in just willing to spend $700, but Randall told me to put the rest of it on a card and get a bigger one b/c he doesn't want to upgrade or spend anymore money anytime soon! HAHA! Little does he know huh?

    What camera do you have? Do you like it?:
    I have a Nikon D5000. It was my dream Christmas present last year...I've asked for a nice camera for a long time, and this was from my mom and dad. They love pictures of Millie and Miles, and this was their way to bribe me to take lots!! So far, I love it. I am totally a novice, and am feeling my way around all things photography, but I'm hooked, for sure.

    What editing software do you use?
    None, yet. That's on THIS year's Christmas list!

    How long have you been interested in Photography?
    I've always preferred to be the one behind the camera...mainly bc I am a control freak, and have always liked the way I take pictures better than the way other people did!! It would always annoy me when I'd take a friend's picture in college, and would zoom in and make sure there wasn't a beer sign behind their head, etc, and then when we'd switch places, I'd find the picture of me from a hundred feet away, and I'd have tree antlers growing out of my head, or something! So, I've always been interested, but didn't really have that strong urge to learn more until I had Camille, and had someone I wanted to photograph, a lot!

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style?
    I don't think I have a style, yet. I like to take Millie and Miles, bc they are my world. I love when the sky is a bright blue and I see beautiful leaves contrasting it (like lime green in the spring and the orange and reds of the fall). I've yet to be able to capture this the way I want, though. Someday! I like bright color, interesting faces, and neat locations.

    What/who inspires you?
    I spend more time than I should searching photography websites every day. I am amazed by all the talent that is out there!

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share:
    Ha! No, not yet. I'm loving reading all about everyone else's, though!!

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share?
    I'll get back to this.

    Anything else you'd like to say?

    I am SO green, that I am worried I'm going to drive everyone crazy with questions and by posting pictures that are nowhere near the quality of everyone else's. Please be patient with me! THANK YOU!!
