I finally took my camera off full-auto mode three years ago and have been practicing here and there since. Most of my practice happens at my boys' sporting events and when we are traveling—though I am really taken with food photography.
Another passion of mine is cooking—especially since I committed to a plant-based diet a few years ago. The recipes on my site are my own with influencers recognized when applicable.
These are the things that really get me fired up.
A few random stories. My initial inspiration for a personal blog was my desire to practice writing. Sadly my words were scrutinized and attacked by a lone reader—so you won't see much in this section.
