There is definite silence gap in my photography from August 2009 to February 2011 simply because I was offered a position with one of the largest communications companies in the US, and in order for me to commute for 4 weeks after moving twice (2 different states), I did the inevitable.. I...sold...my...camera...
Was one of the hardest things I have had to do, knowing the passion stems from the great loss of my daughter, and the many years taken from her that have went and will continue to go unphotographed, however there were many more amazing things to come at that time.
Upon taking and accepting the position at work, I quickly met my love, my knight with a shiny playstation :) We have been together since 10.10 and are happily preparing for the future!
The desire to get back to my photography longed in my heart for many many months, but as you know the pocket book does not always fit our wants and desires. Then came 01.26.2011. My guy handed me the money and sent me off to get a brand new camera. This is life changing again for me, and brings my steps back to me. I love photography, and everything surrounding the beauty you can capture with one simple click, which brings me to why we are here today!
To celebrate getting back to me, my self love/acceptance, my amazing knight with a shiny playstation, and getting back to solid ground, I thought what a better way to celebrate than with my first blog giveaway! As you can read at the bottom of my blog, my photography stems from the love of my daughter Madilyne, and the hope that I can capture memories for those I adore. I aspire to photograph all ages, sizes, shapes, places, emotions, and memories for them to cherish for many years.
