I love getting to know my clients. Everyone has a great story and being a part of it has been pretty often. I feel like I become friends with all of my clients. At least for my part. I just have the best clients. So I figured I’d do a little “get to know me” post. Some of you may know some of this stuff and some may not. But here is ten things you may or not know about your photographer. These are not in any kind of ranking order though. Lol
I love football
I watch football all season long and maybe even during the off season. Well I love football but more importantly I love the Patriots. I have been a fan since I was a kid and met Steve Nelson at some signing event in my home town in New Hampshire. I don’t even remember the event or think I still have the autograph but I do remember his great big smile and my overall excitement. Of course back in those days the Pats sucked. Lol But they were still my team.
Movies are the best
I love watching movies. Like really love watching movies. I love going to the movies and watching them at home and collecting the movies I love to watch. Old movies and 80s classics are a favorite too. Really, I will watch most anything. Except romance/chick flicks. I do not like those. I don’t even really have one favorite movie but some of my favorites are Lord of the Rings, Marvel, Harry Potter and Star Wars. Action and fantasy movies are my favorite genre though. It is entirely possibly I am labeling myself as a HUGE nerd but I can own it. LOL
I love to read too. I don’t get to read as much as I would like but I always have a few books on tap. Fantasy and mystery/detective stories are my go-to though when I get the chance. Some of my favorite authors are Terry Goodkind, Robert Jordan and James Patterson just to name a few. I also love to read the books of the movies I love like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings!
Music is such a great way to relax. My musical tastes are pretty vast but I’d have to say that 80s music is probably my favorite. Anything from Bon Jovi to Pat Benatar to Duran Duran. I love it all. I love Christmas music, country music and worship music too.
I have pretty bad allergies. I am really really allergic to dust and animal dander. So needless to say I feel like I am always sniffling. So sorry in advance. Lol Not really sure what’s in the Texas air but they have been going crazy since we moved to Fort Worth. I think they are trying to kill me this winter. Just sayin’.
All about Winter
Not really sure why this is but I do NOT like summer. I would take cold, snow and gray any day over sunshine and warm days. My mom tells me my Nana was the same way. Maybe I got it from her but either way it came from someplace and people think it’s weird. I even like short days and long nights, stars and moonlight. Now moonlight on freshly fallen snow when you can see your breath on the air sounds like my idea of heaven.
So I am a huge neat freak. All the things need to be put away and in their place and I can’t relax until it’s organized. I can’t go to bed with the house a mess either so I may spend too much time picking up and straightening towels and whatever. I can’t help myself. Lol While I love all things neat and tidy, I may have a Monica Geller closet in my house. IYKYK but sssshhhhhh don’t tell anyone.
I love to cook and I am good at it. This was definitely something I get from my Mom and my Nana. They were both amazing cooks so I am thankful I had such great role models. I have a ton of recipes from my them both and I love to look though them. I really have to restrain myself when it comes to cookbooks and cooking magazines. LOL I love trying new recipes to make too and may have a ton of cookbooks and cooking magazines. Check out these old recipe boxes. Not sure they even make them like that anymore. I think my Nana might have made the one on the right.
My dream house/place to live would be up in the mountains in some log cabin on a lake in the middle of nowhere (in the winter of course). As much as I love people, I love quiet and solitude. Surrounded by nothing but trees and wildlife and the sounds of the lake would be a dream. Maybe close enough to attend a football game now and then and not to have to hunt for my own food. Lol
My faith in God is a huge part of my life. It makes me who I am and helps me strive to be a better person. I believe that God loves me and that I am blessed because of that and that He wants me to love others and bless others whenever I can and I try to do that as much as I can. I love people and that everyone is so different and unique and special. There is just so much beauty in people. With being a photographer I come across so many different people from so many walks of life and it blesses me to have each one in my life. I am so thankful that God has given me a heart for people and that I get to do what I do. Kindness is everything. I try to just be the change I want to see in our crazy world today.
Well there you have it. Lol That was actually a little more weird to write than I thought it would be. I never really really talk about myself or put “info” out there. But hopefully it gave you a little bit to get to know me a little better.
Photographing those once in a lifetime milestones is something that brings me a lot of joy. I truly have the best job in the world and I am so thankful I get to do this every day. Whether you are pregnant, have a newborn baby or a senior graduating from high school it is my honor to be a part of your journey.
