Read More About Chian

I did not always want to be a photographer. I have, however, always loved bright and pretty images that make my heart sigh.

My first experience with photography happened when I was little. I was so excited the first time we went to get our family pictures taken.

I still remember the excitement of getting dressed for pictures. Even though I was wearing a sweater that my grandmother had given me that I didn't really like. It was okay because we were finally getting our family photos done and I was filled with absolute joy!

We went to the bank after business hours at our appointed time. There was a dark backdrop, lights set up, and a chair for posing. My parents were awkward, I thought it was just because we had never done this before. I was just thrilled with the joy of it all, the whole experience, and I was the happiest I had been in awhile.

We then went back in to proof the pictures. I remember loving them all, so many poses of my family and I. I remember my mama walking out crying with her arm around me because the prints had been too expensive for us to afford. We had one 8x10 and several wallets of one post. All this time, all the excitement of getting pictures done, and we had one pose.

In retrospect, one photo was better than none, but when I looked back on that one family photo, I remembered all of the things I felt. The joy, the excitement, and the sadness of not being able to go home with them.

For me, that is where my addiction to photographs began. Our family never had anymore photos taken after that, and the photo I do have is faded, dog eared, and wrinkled, but it's the only one I have so it is treasured in my heart.

Now, I love photographs. Not the awkward, forced kind, but photographs that capture who you are, who your family is, and how truly you feel about one another. Photographs that show the love you have for your husband, your wife, your kids.

Photographs that your children can look back on and see the same things, and bring a smile to their faces as they remember that day, and that you got to go home with all of the memories.

That's what I'm about, and that's what I want to share with you! Let me be a part of your day, of your memories, and those fantastic moments that you will cherish for the rest of your life!
