making my dream {almost} a reality.

For the past year  For the past couple of years  Since I can remember, I've wanted to take pictures.  I remember finding an old camera of my grandparent's, the kind that used the flashes that you had to put on top and they spun around, and I wore that thing out.  I got a pink LeClic camera when I was 9 (please, someone, tell me you remember those..!) and went through countless rolls of 110mm film.  I progressed to asking for a 'black' (my word for more professional) camera when I was about 12.  Justin got me my Canon for my birthday 2 years ago, and this is something that has been hanging around in my head since.  No, I didn't go to school for photography.  Yes, I still have a LONG way to go.  But, I have to start somewhere.  I have to start.  Because this is something that I really, really want to do.  And someday, hopefully in the not-so-distant future, I can say that I am a photographer.

So, with that being said, I've had a few practice sessions.  A pregnant belly and a couple of family shoots.  But last week, I had my first paid session! :D  I took pictures of my dear friend Debi, her husband Tim (who I have known since I could breathe), and their precious little boy Layne.  I am in the middle of starting a blog for my photos, but for now, they will be here.  Here are a few of this precious family.  More to come later...
