A little about me

August 26, 2015

 I rarely talk about me.  I never willingly agree to have my picture taken.  But maybe you want to know me a little better?  If not, that's ok.  This will be short.


I worked for the State of Texas for 27 long, long years.  I make it sound bad - some days it was.  But - the job was actually a blessing.  While at that job, I raised two children, got a divorce, re-married, became a mother-in-law and a grandmother.  The job gave me the flexibility to have the money to support my family and also spend time with them.  So you see - it was a blessing - however, I was tired and terribly burned out.


The last 3 of those 27 years, I slowly began to build a photography business.  I had taken pictures of my family for years of course, but I knew it was something I enjoyed doing.  My sister Gloria and I joined a photography group at my church led by Tiffany Harris and learned so much from Tiffany plus Kristina Merrill and Joe Sauceda - all three who are amazing photographers.  They mentored me and Joe even allowed me to join his photo shoots.  The photography group didn't last very long but I knew I was hooked.  So I went to the next place that one goes to learn - YouTube University.   I watch videos all the time, even to this day.  I have attended online workshops and photography boot camps.  I follow many, many photographers who inspire and teach me.


After 27 years I retired from my State of Texas job and am now pursuing photography full time.  I take pictures about 20% of the time and the other 80% is spent editing photos and marketing my business.  Facebook is a powerful marketing tool and I use it for all its worth.  I dabble with Instagram - I really don't like how much it crops my photos and it wasn't getting me the attention that Facebook does.  I also have spent 2 years building this website, making sure it's fresh and shows who I am as a photographer.


I have spent the last couple of weeks building a Google+ page.  It will have pretty much everything you can see on Facebook and my website but who knows - I may reach a different audience.   Gotta keep trying to get my name out there.


For those of you who are reading my blog - thank you so much.  Please continue to be interactive on Facebook and my website - especially Facebook - they seem to promote the pages that have the most activity. 


To my clients who have trusted their precious memories to me - I am grateful for you.  You are the best!
