About Me

My photo
In the last few years I have yearned for something more, something to push my creativity and challenge my mind. Through the 365 Project and Photography I have found a passion that has filled a hole in my heart. A sense of being and a meaning to my life. I hope my pictures live on forever even if only through my children and my blog.

My biggest resolution is to schedule a practice shoot every weekend so that I will be good enough to go Pre-Pro by the end of the year. DD let me do a quick shoot today, it was 35 degrees out and she was very cold, but let me get a couple of shots.

I need to cook more and eat healthier foods. At least I bought a grilled chicken sandwich for me, the fries & cheeseburgers were for my girls.
