Growing up, I have always been an introvert. I was that kid that sat on the side lines watching everything around me. I enjoy observing the intricate details of life - the color, the smell, the personality, how people move in it, etc. As I got older, that joy in details grew into an admiration for photography and the ability to tell a story in a single snap shot. So whenever I get a free moment to pick up my camera, I do it! It's been a long time coming, but I am officially done with school (FOREVER, woot woot)! I'm a full time sonographer, working two jobs, trying to balance my career and my love for photography. I spend all day imaging people's insides and during my spare time I like to image people's outside :) Photography is one of my favorite past times, but with only so many hours in a day, it remains my hobby. Thus, I will be available for limited portrait sessions.

That's a little about me... now, tell me about you! I look forward to hearing from you.

Smug Mug Meeting

Last night I went with Catherine and Rachel to a Smug Mug meeting led my Jasmine Star.

I had a great time meeting new people and seeing familiar faces. The topic last night was "Netmaking." Netmaking is a term coined by JStar meaning "the art of making..." or something similar to that. I apologize if I butchered that one; I have a feeling I did. Nevertheless, she spoke about how hard it is (for her, and similarly for me) to "network." I'm a really shy gal and whenever I get invited to parties or social gathering, I tend to watch instead of interacting. The way she dealt with it is admirable. She stopped attending the networking functions and instead started to netmake. She offered her help to anyone and everyone, not to benefit herself, but because she was hungry and wanted to help those she admired. Wow. Netmaking. Seems so simple. Help others! At the end of the day it's about Karma. You know, "do unto others as you would like done to you..." or something like that.

Folks, if you don't know this about me already, now you know: I AM TERRIBLE AT SAYINGS. Chris makes fun of me all of the time. I am notorious for butchering things, but hey, I try and people get it.

So... NETMAKING. It's a simple concept and I hope implement this asap!

On a side note, I'll be celebrating mine and my sister's birthday tonight with some friends. This is what I was thinking of making:

I haven't done it in a while, but it's light, healthy, and easy! MMM... Steamed Halibut over Greek Orzo
