I love taking pictures.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words - and if that's the case, I write several novels every time I go out shooting, because I tend to take a lot of pictures!! I love to be creative and yet still traditional. I love to try new things and experiment - and I have done a lot of experimenting! But it has gotten me to where I am today. I have learned most of the skills I have through just going out and doing it. I have followed several great photographers around and have learned so many invaluable things.
But the most important lesson I've learned is that time flies by so quickly and memories fade overnight, and we only have a few things left behind to remember all the good times, the funny times, and the crazy times - and photos are one of those things. Photos are simply: memories. Looking at a picture will always make someone say, "Oh, remember when .. you were so little .. you were so mischievous .. you were so beautiful .. and you were so happy .. remember?"
And that's my mission: to capture and preserve those precious memories, so that years down the road, you can look back and say, "Oh, remember when .."
