The Artist Behind The Camera | 2012

I’ve never really been the type of person to just jump in front of the camera & flash a smile. Maybe it has something to due with the fact that I’m always behind the camera, or maybe it’s because I’m not so photogenic. However Savannah, being the sweet sister she is, offered to take some pictures of me. I knew younger sisters were good for something. ;) Joking! 
I feel sometimes like I’m a stranger to the blogger world, and would like to know EACH  of you all better. Not just as “bloggers,” but as friends.  Now I’ll stop being a stranger by telling you a little about myself. . .
I LOVE to laugh & people who make me laugh! :) I also love snowboarding, horses, big ranches, music, playing the fiddle, being barefoot, animals, soccer, baking, reading, the colors blue/yellow, coffee, sweet tea, small towns, rainy days, rodeos, my Savior, watermelon, hanging with friends, bonfires, cheese cake, ice cream, sports in general, watching movies, the drive-in movies, photography (well duh;)) and so, so, SO much more!! The list goes on!
I can be quite at times, and crazy at times. I suppose it depends who I’m with. ;)

I’m not too fond of spiders, heights, darkness, snakes, needles, big city driving, sharks, the ortho, ect...
Did I mention that I love the color blue!! I’ve been lately obsessed with painting my nails for some reason. Haha!
I’m a pretty simple girl.
Three random facts about me? 1. I’ve never been stung by any sort of bee, wasp, or hornet. 2. I taught my cat to sit like a dog. 3. I’ve been scuba diving in the ocean before.

I got saved by my Savior when I was 14. I was on a lawn mower and I just started thinking about all He has done for me, and all the beauty He gave us to enjoy. I realized right then and there that I wanted to follow Him. Neat story, huh?  
One of the reasons why I fell in love with photography is because of the beauty I got to capture through a simple lens. It was love & I never turned back! :-)
My future consists of continuing my photography business & going to the community college here in our small little town to get my AA. I just passed the test to get in today! I was pretty surprised that I passed. For one, I hadn’t studied, & I went to bed at 1:30am! I actually got a score that I was happy with. I’m so thankful!!
I look forward to my future! I’ll be pretty busy this year with my photography business, college, and soccer.
I hoped you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me! :-) I’d LOVE to get to know each of y’all better. Why not do a post all about yourself on your own blog!? :) I’d love to see it.
      Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
