The Past, The Present, The Future

My dad being a photographer

My Dad was a photographer long before I was a twinkle in his eye. He photographed weddings, and places that he travelled while in the military. Our family has tons of visual memories because of him.

I love to tell people the story about the first images I made and how his camera, his contact box, and his equipment got me started on my journey as a photographer. And how I used my mom’s iron to glue the tiny contact prints on to cardboard.

One of my sisters dug up this photo to celebrate my parent’s 50th anniversary in 2008. The pen scratch off to the side was probably the beginning of one of the many artistic careers being fulfilled in my family.

I love this journey, thank you Dad!
