10 Things that Most Clients Don't Know About Me

1.    I get VERY nervous before a photo shoot! Whether it’s a family I already know or someone I’m meeting for the first time, I always get nervous about getting that perfect shot for the family or that I’ll be able to get giggles and smiles out of the children.  Don’t even get me started on newborns…I get the most nervous about photographing them! But I still love it!!!

2.    I love stationery stores!! Not one in particular, but all of them.  I love personalized stationery to just heading to the local Office Depot or Staples.  My husband usually has to drag me out of there.  I love finding a beautiful notebook or agenda or a nice new pen.  A few years ago you would catch me replacing my agenda calendar every 4-6 months because I could never find the perfect one but I finally found one I LOVE and I’ve had it for 1.5 years!! Woo Hoo! If you want know about my new favorite agenda book, just message me and I’ll fill you in.  Even though I’ve found the perfect one for me, it still doesn’t stop me from heading to the local stationery store :)  Oh and if you have any recs on great stores, pens, notebooks, etc, just send them my way!

3.    I am an introvert!  You wouldn’t necessarily know it considering I have a photography business (and in my full-time life I’m a Risk Consultant for an insurance broker).  I’m horrible at social events, especially when approaching people I don’t know.  I’m as friendly as can be when someone approaches me, though.  I actually prefer it that way! Every day I need a little “recharge” time given that both my careers are very social in nature.

4.    I'm a teeny bopper at heart.  I love YA books, boy bands, etc.  I just tell myself that it keeps me young at heart :)  

5.    I married my high school sweetheart.  We went to the same middle and high school but it wasn’t until our Senior year when he sat in front of me in Physics that we found each other (being an introvert and all). We've been together for 24 years and have two beautiful children.

6.    I can't make up my mind.  If you give me the choice between two of anything, be prepared to wait a while for an answer….

7.    I LOVE chocolate chip cookies.  It's my ultimate favorite snack, especially fresh out of the oven.  I prefer homemade but I will tell you that I have found the perfect chocolate chip out there and it can be found at Chick-fil-A.  Don't they look so yummy?!?!

8.    I MUST have nail polish on.  I hate the way my fingers feel when they are naked! Weird, right?

9.    I LOVE to read and I'm a movie buff!  I love all types of books & movies…except maybe scary ones…as I’ve gotten older, that genre has fallen to the bottom of my favorites list!

10.I never crawled when I was a baby.  I was born with hip dysplasia where my hips would pop out of the sockets and had to have surgery when I was an infant.  After surgery, I had a cast until I was about 1 year old.  Once the cast was taken off, I immediately started standing and walking.  All’s good now, I can walk and run with no problems. 

11. I HATE too cook! 

I'd love for you to share with me something that I may not know about you!
