Sarah is a former student of mine from my high school English teaching days.  When she graduated I remember thinking, “I wonder if I ever reached her.”  On my desk one day was a gift from Sarah. . . a crystal apples which still sits on my computer desk to this day. I’m looking at it now.  It wasn’t the fact that Sarah brought me a gift that I found so touching, it was the sentiment.  There was a card as well and through that I knew I had made an impact on her.  She has made me very proud with her success and her recent acceptance of a teaching job.  She will be a math teacher this Fall and I wish her a room full of students like her.  

When I first started my photography business, I was scared to death of weddings. I would shoot anything, but no weddings! I kept telling myself that I was better at senior photos and that I should simply stick to that.  I have a dear friend who lives in Waco, Texas, and she encouraged me to shoot more weddings.  With her pushing and prodding and encouragement, I have forced myself to go against my fears of not doing something well.  (I was the kid in class who always had to have an A.) Now I look at the product of hard work and determination (along with lots of reading,  blog stalking, and practice . . . ) to see the end result.  I LOVE shooting weddings!!  I hope Tay and Kent enjoy their photos as much as I enjoyed shooting them!
