I'm painfully shy around those I don't know, but super outgoing with those I do! I make jokes all the time and crack myself up on a daily basis.
I am a photographer and enjoy not only shooting maternity, engagement and senior sessions for pay - but I love allowing my creativity show by finding abandoned locations to explore, or to take a trip to the skate park and shoot those who are skateboarding.
I have a series that will be displayed in a gallery through November 18th! I had gone out and spoken with some homeless around the Houston area, and got their stories and portraits. In having my stuff in the gallery, I've managed to gather about 12 large bags of clothing, shoes and books (they requested) for donation!
I had a 9yr marriage (married at 20) that didn't work, and wasn't what God wanted for me. But it did result in the adoption of my sweet, smart, joyful 10yr old daughter! Its actually an amazing Testimony if you ever want to hear it!
I have always known that I was meant to be a wife, to love, care for and support my husband in his endeavors, so I began this profile as a leap of faith trusting that this time, I too, will be blessed in a relationship.
I was a Medic working in 9-1-1 when I married up until we adopted our daughter, the I stayed home with her, allowing my license to lapse. I had planned to return back to school and re-certify, however I was then put into a divorce and had to choose to return to school for something that would pay enough to support my daughter and myself.
Other than that, I was raised Methodist, and was very active in our Youth Group, taking the position for Missions Leader in youth council. I organized and planned all of our mission activities as helping others has been written in my heart since birth. I currently volunteer for an organization who takes bereavement portraits of babies who were born deceased. We offer the ONLY photos these poor parents will ever have of their precious babes, and then I'm also a digital retouch artist for the organization (some of these angels are born with bruising, and or skin tearing, I retouch the image to give them the appearance of sleep rather than death, so that the parents can feel comfortable displaying in the home).
I found the Mormon faith, through a friend who brought me to church and then to His baptism.
I was finally baptized alongside my daughter on Dec 29,2013
So I am new to the faith but know this is where I am meant to be!
