Well, this is my first blog post...EVER! I'm returning to the role of "photographer for hire" after a five year absence which was a time of significant growth in my family size, in my technical shooting and editing knowledge and experience, and in the contents of my camera bag (woohooo!!!). I am so ready and so excited to jump back in. Over the last few years, I have been honing my photography and editing skills by working as a volunteer photographer and graphic artist for an international non-profit organization, by photographing and editing stock photos currently available on 6 different sites, and, of course, chasing and "shooting" my ever-growing family at every opportunity. Thanks for taking a moment to read these opening thoughts on my newest photographic adventure.
