Mornings Made Better With Big G Super Heroes


My history with comic books dates back to 1995, when I met my then boyfriend and future husband.

Confession: I am a Hoarder…A Photo Hoarder That Is

This is the first photo I took with my first dSLR, a Nikon d50.

At first I didn’t know what started my obsession with keeping photos. It started long before I became an actual photographer. No, this problem began around the mid-2000′s decade. When digital imaging started to get better. However we could never afford a decent camera and the Megapixels still weren’t great then. Which means most of the photos I have of my daughter are hard copy. And all of the young photos of my oldest are hard copy, some even scrapbooked. {Read More}
