I started pursuing my dream of photography many years ago, in high school actually! I learned to shoot with film (yes, I'm way older than digital files!!), learned how to adjust my camera settings, what film to shoot with, and the funnest part!! THE BLACK ROOM!! There is something so satisfying about watching the paper come to life with the image that you took. There wasn't any adjusting settings when the screen on the back of your camera showed you how much you screwed up those settings! There was hoping to god you got it right and didn't miss the moment.
I'll be the first to admit that this isn't the business I ever anticipated seeing myself in, but I'm here and I am in love with it. The satisfaction I felt watching that image come to life on paper in the black room way back when, has become the satisfaction I feel when I've provided a family with beautiful images of the people they love the most.
Without further adieu, I'd love to introduce you to the newest members of the Purely Fresh family!!
