All I've ever been able to say about me is that I am.
I am a high school drop out who went back to college and earned an associates degree in micro-electronics.
I am a single parent of an amazing daughter and aunt to several amazing nieces and even a few nephews.
I am a writer, a photographer, and at times a creative mess.
I am an introverted-extrovert. I am a home-body that loves to travel random places. I enjoy lots of people in limited time frames which is part of the reason I enjoy being an event photographer. I enjoy more one on one (or three-four) groups of friends gathering for relaxing and fun.
It has taken me a long time to learn that life isn't about the destination it is about the journey along the way.
I am someone that loves the internet it allows me to bring the different aspects of myself into some place that almost makes sense.

I am a daughter of an amazing man who has overcome so much in his life. I wish that his life could have been easier but then he wouldn't be the person he is today. He creates jewelry from Oregon Sunstones and is teaching myself and his interested grandchildren how to do so. That is one of the products I work with for photographing and website exposure (all a learning experience for me). HeliopolisRocks (live 02/01/16) you can find us on facebook now.
I have two aspects to my photography work.
One is about you Aperture of You or find me on facebook and is for event photography, headshots, family shots. I want to capture your essence and moments to print. Digital files are great but shouldn't you have your best photograph on your business card or better yet in a printed book or on the wall of your house or office?
The other aspect is for my soul and hopefully it calls to something in you as well. You can find links to sources for prints and cards based on these at I was I am I will be Me or again with the facebook link.
When I started shooting more events and headshots I realized that I needed to rebrand and so some of my older family shoots, maternity shoots, and weddings can be seen on the I was I am I will be me facebook link.
They are always a bit in flux but ideally I would like to get my creative fiction published this year (instead of hiding it away from the world). I want to work on more motivational themed items and I want to help everyone that I can find their community or tribe. I've found a few that I'm really proud to call part of my world this site Community Scene (referal link) is one of them and you can advertise here and grow your reach. This is my referal link another community I've found to be excellent for personal and professional growth is Chicks Connect (referal link) don't let the Chicks name fool you. They welcome a few Roosters in as well when the universe aligns properly.
I'm also working on an affiliate store with Amazon. People have been asking me what books or camera equipment I recommend and since a lot of the world seems to enjoy shopping Amazon why not work with it instead of against it. If you buy something from someones affiliate link it doesn't cost you anymore and lets them earn a few pennies or so on the sale. This one (referal link) is for books and such including adult coloring books. This one (referal link) is for photography and video equipment/props that I find and like. The listings in those will grow and change from time to time especially as I learn more about utilizing it fully.
In the idea of community and tribe and with what I've learned and am still learning from promoting my dad's work I have another idea in the works to promote local artists and creators and those that help the artists and creators by removing the distractions of the mundane.
The advantage of all of this even though it sounds like a lot is that it let's me work around a schedule that works for me. The advantage of figuring out scheduling of social media posts and hopefully getting to the point that maybe I could afford my own assistant or two.
Thank you for taking a moment to get to know me. I would love to learn more about you.
Hi! Welcome to my world. Please introduce yourself.
