Here We Go!
This world of photography chose me, I did not choose it. Well, I guess if you consider me buying a camer choosing, then I guess I sorta did. I started out like most moms, wanting to capture those moments of my growing children. Why do they have to grow so fast? I am soon going to have all my kids in school! It quickly grew into an obsession. As with everything in life I jump right in, head first hoping the bottom is deep enough. I devoured everthing I could get my hands on to teach me. The more I learned, the more I feel in love with this craft. It became my outlet for the tough job of being a mom and a full time medical student. I then had some mental health issues surface again. This time though, it was worse than any time before. I sucked it up and went back on my crazy medz. After a while on them, I had another minor episode (that’s what I call them). I really began to question where I was headed with my life. I had just finished half of my nursing degree. The soul searching began (oh, and internet searching). I finally decided that if school was causing my episodes to be this bad, what was it going to be like when school got more intense? What about when I started one of the most stressful careers? Seeing as how I wanted to be around my children and not in a psych ward, I was rethinking this nursing thing. I ended up making one of the scariest, toughest decisions of my life (totally no exaggeration!). I decided to drop school and pursue my love of photography.
