I have felt very blessed lately. I know I am a lucky lady...and I am very grateful for that! I have an awesome hubby and wonderful children and an awesome job that I can work around my family. Not to mention that I have some pretty darn awesome clients. I have been mentoring some awesome people lately with a few more to come in the next couple of weeks. I have also had the opportunity to have some high school students ask to shadow me, whom want a career in photography. I love helping others and I love showing people what I do and how I do it. Some may ask, "well, aren't you afraid people will steal your tricks!?" 

Nope. Not. One. Bit.

Everything I know I have learned from my mentors, trial and error, or from a tutorial on dandy ol' youtube. I don't deserve to be this lucky and I have been blessed with this talent so it would be silly for me to not share my tricks/what I do. Plus, you and I could be in the same studio with the same newborn and I could show you exactly what settings/light/set up I use and we would STILL come out with two totally different photos! THAT is the amazing part of photography, it is an art. Not two photos are alike, each capture something different, a specific moment in time.

Anyway, it's HALLOWEEEEEN!!!! For those of you trick or treating enjoy your yummy candy, and for those of you on the computer, let's do a give away....a SPOOKTACULAR give away ;).
