This is another attempt at art. If I am not something - it is a photographer. I have no schooling, formal or informal. I have no experience. I, admittedly, know nothing about a camera. Oh, but I have an interest ... and I have subjects I wish to capture ... memories I wish to last. So I will learn, simply because a professional does not live with my family - cannot capture the everyday - doesn't get to see what I see. True, it is all play for me ... but why not play? Is a camera only to be held in the hands of a professional? Can my eyes not see beauty as well? I will always turn to true and talented photographers for memories so precious that I need the eye of a pro. But I also want to capture the common. And for that, I am here. In painting, portraits have always been my favorite ... so I think I will begin there. In fact, I will start with my favorite beauty - my husband, Jared.
