day 96

HAPPY WORLD PHOTO DAY!

I first picked up a camera 6 years ago and learned from one of the best!  Karen Russell over at Snapshots of a Good Life.  Little did I know that I would be where I am today in my photography career.  I run a portrait photography business and work full time as an in house commercial photographer for Lowepro and JOBY.

I decided I would pull out my Canon AE-1 to take some images today and a few still life images of this classic Canon (something I have never done since I got it).  Little did I know that those photos would never happen because my wee one decided she wanted to take it for a spin.  I put a new roll of film in it and said have at it.  I showed her how to focus and how to advance the film.  Well she used up an entire roll of film and tomorrow we will take our film over to Shutterbug to have it developed.  On day 96 I am thankful for photography.  It is a therapy for me, a career and makes my heart happy.
