Today over on the blog I did a little piece on "5 photography workshops I would love to attend (and you might, too!). A couple of them I've been to before, and give some insight, and three of them I haven't been by I'm dying to go! If you've got a sec — here's the link: http://kel.by/1jS2jSK
I absolutely LOVE to learn new stuff, and if I get a chance to sit in another photographer's class, or spend a day in their workshop, I jump at the chance. Here are five (in no particular order) that are coming up that I would really love to attend (and I'm hoping to get to at least a few of ...

I admit it. I only watch the beautiful game every 4 years. This championship game was special. 24 years ago I was in Germany when Germany defeated Argentina 1-0. That party trumped Boris Becker and Steffi Graf winning Wimbledon (and they both lived nearby). It trumped the Oktoberfest. That spirit of national pride and being invited to join in the reverie was amazing.
Today I watched the victory with folks from the town I called "home", Heidelberg. My family was with me and enjoyed ....well after the goal - the win.
What a great game!

"With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day."

lifestyle and action photographer. artist. business owner. student of life. NAPP member! cheerleading coach. mom. wife. BUSY. Loving every minute of it!
Introduction
I'm a mom, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. I have traveled the world and am grateful for that opportunity thanks to the US Government and my Dad taking us overseas.  I feel passionately about my family and friendships. I enjoy scrapbooking and photography and have been a business owner for a year now. It's still start-up and I'm learning a ton and I love it! I'm also a volunteer cheerleading coach for our local Pop Warner association. In my past life, I was in Human Resources. Loved that job because I love meeting people and I think this is what makes me most successful in my photography endeavors.
