Hi, this looks like a great forum! I found you all last night, through the bludomain blog interview. I post on a couple of other photography forums, but have yet to find one that I actually like, that isn't a MWAC board disguised as a professional board. That said, I am a MWAC, but a professional one! I have 2 children, 1 husband, 1 dog and lots of fresh and salt water creatures. I live in California. My interest in photography started at a young age. I've had a camera all my life, in some form or another. I started my business last year, and have seen quite a bit of success. I shoot mainly children and family portraiture, although I did try a couple wedding (which I hated) and events. I've also shot for a local magazine, which was fun. I love all aspects of photography, I don't limit myself to just portraiture. I appreciate all art, no matter if I don't like it or not. Art is so subjective, and I'm not arrogant enough to tell someone it's not art just because I don't like it! You will find that I am outspoken, accept honest CC, encourage learning and am willing to share. Thank you!
