The Photographer

 Me? I'm just a regular seventeen (eighteen, wow) year-old girl. Apart from being home schooledmoving more times than I can rememberhaving the best family in the whole worldand setting my life apart for Jesus, well, I'm pretty normal.

     When I was nine or ten years old, my mother gave me my first camera: an old plastic film camera. I loved that clunker and took photos galore. It finally broke down and after about two years I started to save for my very first digital camera. A silver Kodak point and shoot. Two more digitals and many disposable cameras later, I decided to buy a DSLR (digital single lens reflex. It means how the light is captured:)
     I worked long and hard for my dear Nikon D5100, and it was worth it! 

The only lens I have (so far) is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm but I'm planning on getting a 55-200mm and a macro or prime lens sometime (soon, hopefullyand a new tripod. I got a Manfrotto compact tripod for my birthday! It's a good intermediate kit but I'll have to upgrade eventually.

Oh yeah, did I mention how much I love to have fun? Good, clean, laughing-so-hard-I'm-crying-and-can't-breathe fun:) Especially with my sister! God has blessed me with a great family, I love all of them so much (even though we can fight like knights and dragons) and I wouldn't trade 'em for the world. 

Last (but not least) I love music, books, and movies.

I am constantly awestruck by the wonders of the world. I see God in everything around me and it can take my breath away. The natural beauty of this world we live in makes my life beautiful. 

That's who I am.
