My name is Karen and i'm a mother to two wonderful children.
This is my youngest,
And of course, this is me!
Now a bit more about me,
I have dabbled on and off with photography for probably over 15 years now. I was originally taught on a 35mm Pentax Camera. What a beautiful camera that was.
I spent many years in a dark room learning and devoloping my own pictures. And even though that no longer exists, I am forever greatful for learning that.
But when digital camera's first came out, I will be honest, I did NOT jump on it. I actually decided at that time to give it up for a bit, and that's exactly what I did.
Until I got pregnant with my son. When he was born, my passion for photography came back full force. I had a reason to go out and grab a camera and that is exactly what I did.
But I was now sitting back at the beginning as if I never knew a thing about photography. I now had to relearn everything I once knew about photography.
Throughout the years, I have spent relearning everything I once knew and more. Digital photography was new to me, and I didn't want to be out shooting like before without knowing what I needed to know.
I didn't want to come across as one of those 'fake photographers'. So over the next few years, I spent learning all I could about digital photography.
Over the years and even while I was still learning, I entered a photo contest and even won. My collection is in a book called forever journies or something like that. (It was over 9 years ago, I forgot sorry)
I still have a lot to learn, but I am getting there.
