    Yes I know grammar and writing is important, that is why my site was composed nicely, I have always struggled with this. However, I did not steal the wording from another photographer. I buy things from many sites like email templates, and website templates. The info on my investment page was something I purchased from Etsy. I realize that most of you will still look down on me for that. I will rework my website and not include anything that I have purchased.

    At the end of the day im a great person with an amazing family, loving husband, and two beautiful kids. I also proudly wipe my own ass with a high school education 🙂  I don’t think im as much of an idiot as you think ebi, but your allowed your own opinion. Thank you for pointing out all my grammar errors, how else will i learn right? Never was my strong point.

    Just so everyone knows none of the advice was wasted on the original poster I read everything and had taken it to heart. I’m sorry if i got upset, came off like a bitch or like none of the advice mattered to me because it did. I was most upset to feel like people were not judging my photos but how much i cared for photography or how bad i wonted it. To this day i still do a hell of allot more free work then paid work because i enjoy photography. I take every opportunity to shoot, and learn. I really was putting my heart, and soul into every photo i had taken. So yes it was hard to hear the criticism. I can defiantly see allot of what i was doing wrong then, myself, and everyone around me has seen the improvements my work has made. So im sorry IHF if your not impressed but thank you for sharing my new site, I would love for everyone to see the work im doing now. See im not out to impress anyone at this point just doing what i love to do. The best thing about photography is that it does not conform. Each individual is free to produce the photos they wont, the photos that speak to them. I have been lucky enough to be mentored by one of the greats of photography, someone i got a chance to meet in middle school. While he was visiting area schools to teach the basics. He is now the only critic i I care for. I got many emails after i posted my links form people saying this is not the best place to go for critic, i would agree. It so easy these days for people to sit behind there keyboards and say anything. Im thankful for the good advice i did get from this site most of it going directly to my inbox including the advice from MBC .  I typed this and all of my previous messages out on my phone so i wall apologize for all my grammar mistakes and bad spelling. Truth is i don’t care if you judge me on that anyway 🙂

    I defiantly did listen. He was vary nice he was being constructive, I Thank him for that. I just always get the feeling that photographers act as if they were in the womb snapping away, born professionals. MBCham did not seem like that at all but the comment came across that way. The comments about photography being an after thought in my life. What age was he when he had his first camera and knew he was going to be a photographer? Let me guess 5? Seems like that’s the deal with most the pros. Not matter what time i thought of it, i do have a passion and if that does not come across in my work im fine with it. Maybe my passion is to be different. Sorry you don’t see any RR tracks or burned down barns in my shots. I will run right out tomorrow and find a red brick wall to shoot in front of.

    If i would stop getting hate mail i would be more then happy to repost my website. Im vary proud of my work. Its my art its what i love to do. Looking at the “Images” i have created brings a smile to my face. It seems the only issue anyone has is not with my photos them self but the fact that i charge money.

    Here is a link to a photo the right is mine the left is another photographers im not trying to be hateful but if people are going to pay for her work why would it be so bad to pay for mine? In your eyes you might think there getting shit on ether way, But lets say the person cant afford what the pros charge. Should they not have photos of there big day? Or should they choose the best possible photographer in there price range? I cant afford a  Rolls-Royce but im surly not taking the bus. I got a Toyota and i don’t expect it to have the same features but i do expect it to run.

    I did not for a second think with this crowd i would hear any thing close to “Your Great”. Funny thing is on this page its hard to find a website linked to there work. I may not be the best but surly not the worst. I  thought MBChamberlain comment was ok. Somethings he said were not even worth writing. So what if photography was an  after-thought in my life. Im only 24 how much of an after thought could it be? Was every professional photographer born with a camera in there hand? Of course growing up i wonted to be things like a super hero or president lol. I was only aloud to hold my fathers camera a few times growing up and when i did he would tell me to be careful, Because the camera costed more then it did to birth me. (He was vary protective of his gear). It was not till i actually got a camera better then a point and shot that i found how much i did enjoy it, Mostly because there was so much more i could do with it. I do actually know most of the techniques on his list and i do use them to the best of my ability, minus the gear i don’t have that would be need  to use some techniques. I have found it hard to get out of doing the selective coloring. I did it a few times and now im asked for it by everyone and some times i try to tell people no or i dont do it, and im asked over and over again and made to feel like i have to do what they wont.  Also hard not to give someone a CD when 3 other people within miles do give a CD. I wont my link removed but i cant. I removed my site because of the multiple daily emails and hate mail. If you have enough time to send me a two page hate mail then you are not a good photographer because your surely not busy with clients. Im sorry if my photos are just  lack luster images. Keep your eye out for them in a few years at least you will be able to tell them apart. 😉 What im getting at is nothing anyone tells me on here is going to change my mind. I fully enjoy every minute spent behind my camera and will continue to do so for a long long time.

    Im  not trying to judge anyone’s work for what it is, Im only trying to prove to my husband that im not the only person who does not like covering a baby in candy corn and that he is soooooo wrong when he tells me that i should do stuff like that. He thinks this is what people wanna see. Maybe it is?

    Im not asking about the photo its self. Im not saying anything bad about it. I just wondering how many like the use of candy corn? My husband caught me looking at it and said i was not that creative to think of using candy corn. I will agree with him im a vary simple photographer. I like the people to be the focus not the props. Anyway we got into an argument and about it and he wonted me to ask other people if they would use it as a prop. I have seen allot of the photographers work and she is vary good so its not that i think the photo is bad i just don’t like the candy corn used as a prop. My opinion, sorry. So im just wondering if i really am to plain or if this is to much?

    No i just found this site. Never asked for anyone’s review of my work before ether. I get allot of complements from people i have shot for or friends and family. But i was thinking it would be nice to get a review for a real photographer. I did read a few post after i had already posted this and it made we wanna take it back… I could not figure out how to delete. I have to ask why you asked that?
