Time to do Photo Assignments

I have a passion for photography and art. Just like you, I had to start somewhere. I took classes, attended seminars, traveled out of state to workshops and tradeshows. I want to pay it forward and help others to increase their knowledge of photography.

Maybe you just want to increase your knowledge, take better pictures of your own kids or maybe you're interested in starting your own photography business someday... come start here. What I don't claim: To be an expert. I do have an extended knowledge of photography and would love to share what I have learned along the way with you.

To reserve your spot... please shoot me an email:
Class size will be limited... so there will be time for Q&As.
{Next Course: March/April. Cost: $179.00}

Meet this fun family, JD, Cheris and Kids. We had some fun on this cold afternoon and managed to get some great images! JD is an old classmate from way back when... I mean way back... elementary school! That's why I love my job... meeting new people and meeting up with old friends from my childhood. He has a lovely wife and two awesome kids!

{Author: Kristie Damon & Family}

Come meet novel writer, Kristie Damon. She has just started her 20th novel and her first novel will soon be published! I am looking forward to reading it! Kristie is one of the funniest gals I've ever met. She always has the best stories and she has a way of telling them. Before she started writing full time, she designed scrapbook paper and enjoyed teaching scrapbooking classes. She even went to Canada twice to teach some classes!

When I asked her to tell me things about me, this is what she said:

" I am addicted to soda and sleep and I love my two chillens! They make me laugh. I have been married to John for 18 years, and seriously, he's the most patient, generous man on the planet. I think it would be hard to be married to a writer. He's very good to me. I have awesome parents and siblings ... I tolerate our dog. That's about all for now. O, I can't eat anything blue and I can edit in my sleep."

LOL... I was trying to think what is out there that is blue??? Ummm... blue frosting? Is that a "no", Kristie? Oh wait, blue M&M's! Anyway, when her book is published, I'll be first in line to get it. So, stay tuned... I'll be telling you all about it!

Come meet her family...

I remember this beautiful, red-headed little girl when she was 5! I can't believe she's graduating now. She is absolutely gorgeous! (And, so is her mother!) We had a fun senior session! I can't wait for her to see all of her proofs!
