I have always loved photography, and getting my picture made. I always loved how the picture brought the memory right back to life. Like the time my sister and cousin made a beanbag sandwich out of me, I will never forget that... largely because my Uncle Jim took pictures. I played around with pictures some, and got some cute pics of my kids as they were growing, but I consider this my first 'pro' shot. I didn't really take it, but I set it up. We were at a walmart portrait studio, and I badgered the poor lady to death, 'do this, do that, put in this prop, take out that one...' However, she was so sweet, when I set up this shot, she said 'Wow, you need to be in photography, want a job?'
