My name is Kristen. I'm 28 and have 3 kids (ages 9, 6, and 21 months). My husband and I opened our own photography business a couple of years ago and business has been booming this year! We mostly do weddings, but we also do senior & family portraits. My husband is really into nature and commercial photography, but I am more of a people photographer (if that makes sense! LOL!)
I first got interested in photography in high school. One of my first jobs was working in a local portrait studio. I had a wonderful studio manager who had over 30 years of experience and she was my mentor and I learned so much from her. As I got older I went to college for nursing but I still continued to work part-time in local photo studios. Then I met my husband almost 5 years ago and he was a photographer so we decided to join forces and start up a business and we absolutely LOVE it!
Right now we are pretty busy with wedding season (we are also ttc baby #4), but in my spare time I enjoy messing around with Photoshop. I used to be really into scrapbooking, but with 3 kids I just don't have the time anymore
Anyway, I just thought I'd introduce myself. I got an invite to join this board and I didn't know it existed so thanks for inviting me!
Hey Kristen, I'm so glad you decided to join us! I know it's easy here at JM to fall into a "rut" and not venture out to any other boards, I do the same thing.
I've got 3 kiddos too so I feel your pain on being busy...but I hope you jump in and join us whenever you have a spare moment. We've got contests & challenges going on so feel free to get in on those too.
