Okay, so I thought I would do something a little fun today! Stepping out of my comfort zone a little and give you a little in site into myself! I think it’s important for people to really know who you are and understand you. That is an important part as a photographer, to help clients get to know you better so maybe they can understand your work. So here are some random facts about me:
1: I don’t like to read, AT ALL! If you send me an email (pass it on email, joke or whatever) if it’s more than a sentence or 2 and has no pictures attached, it automatically gets thrown in the trash! FYI: maybe just don’t send them to me at all, lol! I do read blogs that I enjoy, but I do a lot of skimming too!
2: We raise labs and to be honest, I’m not a dog person! Don’t get me wrong I love my dog, but if we never had pets I would be a-ok with it!
3: I drink coffee at night as much as I do in the morning! I usually have 2 cups in the morning and 2 cups at night, with creamer of course
4: My house is hardly ever clean, between work, kids, husband, the house just can’t keep up, or should I say I can’t keep up with the house!
5:I love ramon noodles and sometimes have then as night snack.
6:I love to scrapbook and use to be really good at keeping my books current, but have really slacked over the past few yrs
7: I don’t like to cook. I only cook because I have to! If I never had to cook again, oh how happy that would make me!
8: I try to keep everything as real as possible! Don’t ask my opinion of you don’t want an honest answer. I try to tell it how it is, even if it may hurt someones feelings, and in return, I want the same done to me. Life isn’t all about butterflies and rainbows and sometimes we need to hear the real truth to be able to fix ourselves! We are all a work in progress!
9: I LOVE LOVE winter time (as I’m sure most of you know)! I love the coldness, the snow, everything! I can’t stand summer time. I guess I shouldn’t say I can’t stand it, because, yes it nice to go outside and not have to put on a ton of gear. And it’s nice to do outdoor activities, but when you can’t even stand to be outside b/c it’s so hot and humid, yuck! You can always put more clothes on, but you can’t shouldn’t take more off
10: I love love my kids more than life itself, but am not a “kid” person. If that makes any sense at all, lol! We have 2 beautiful babies that I wouldn’t trade for ANYTHING! But 2 kids is all I want. I’m not a “babysitter” and never was. Even as a teenager babysitting my neighbor’s kids, I totally dreaded it and couldn’t wait for the parents to arrive home!
11: I LOVED high school, yes I said it! LOVED! I miss it a lot actually, sounds silly I know! I hated the “school” part of it, I was a terrible student and basically squeaked by for the most part! But the social aspect of it, was great! I was not popular by any means, but I enjoyed seeing my friends everyday, hanging out and just being social! Some of my GREATEST memories are from when I was in school!
12: I can’t spell worth a hoot (thank goodness for spell check)! I’m constantly mis-spelling words and not pronouncing words correctly (partly why I was terrible in school). I think there is a automatic speculation, that if you can’t spell correctly you are stupid! Ever heard of street smart verses book smart? I’m definitely on the street smart side of things!
13: I love Netflix! It’s so great to have the movies actually come to your house and never have any late fees! BEST THING EVER! And I’m always watching something on their watch instantly. Some of the best shows I have discovered have been through netflix, Dexter, Californication, Weeds, just to name a few!
14: I get really nervous very easily! People can see right though me, I have a hard time “faking” it! Whatever “it” may be! I stumble my words, I don’t think quick on my feet! People who don’t really “know” me, probably think I’m an idiot, lol! Because, I’m always stumbling words and making mistakes. The nervousness just takes over! So I’m for warning you! And for this reason, I don’t blog or write as much as I should, b/c I’m always curious on how people perceive me! I will let the littlest things bother me for days!
15: I LOVE LOVE taking photographs, as you can already tell, but I have NO desire to shoot weddings! I have second shot for a few people, which was ok. But it’s not where I want to go at all! I always refer my friends to other photographers for weddings!
Well I think that’s enough for nowI hope you have enjoyed getting to know me a little better! I always tell people I’m an open book, so ask my anything you want! And Because a post just isn’t complete with out a picture! Here ya go! Enjoy and thanks for looking!
