Photography comes second in my list of jobs to my full time job of teaching. I have known I wanted to teach from the day I started kindergarten. Five-year-olds still love you and get excited about everything. They come to school ready to learn and even want to come on the weekends! In the past, I have given a portrait of each of my student's to their parents as Christmas gifts.
I come from a huge family and have always been very close to them. My dad is 1 of 11 children and all but one of them have at least one child. Most of my older cousins also have children, making my Oma (grandmother) a great-oma over 20 times. My mom is from a much smaller family - she is 1 of 4 and the only girl. On this side of the family, there are only 8 grandchildren including me and my sister, and two great grandchildren. No event in my family is done small, and I know that when you look back on an event, you like everything to be represented no matter how big or small.
