For nearly 20 years I drove a school bus to help support my family and my camera hobby. It was a job that paid well and I loved it. My "hobby" of taking pictures slowly evolved into a career and I was loving it more and more. Changes in administration with my job made going to work every day about as pleasant as a root canal and I knew it was time to retire. I was also limited to the hours I could be doing photo sessions because the hours of my regular job were split and if I did book a session during the day, I was always under pressure to get it done before having to be back to work in the afternoon. So in June, 2014 I traded the life of rising at 4:30 AM, standing in the pouring rain or below zero temperatures to pre-trip my school bus, for 6:30AM coffee-in-bed and conversations with my husband. My sessions normally start at 10AM which allows me time to go to the gym, feed the dog and the bird and get some things done at home before I head to my studio.
This is one of my recent sessions with Anita. She's such a beautiful woman, both inside and out. It was a wonderful session and I can't wait to show her the images I made of her. And I love what I do...I will photograph people until the day I die.
