So... as of January 2016... I am starting my official photography BUSINESS!!!

I've had a couple of paid event shoots, which went well... even though corporate events aren't my thing.
I have an upcoming corporate shoot for headshots of the upper management.

I have 2 sessions booked for next weekend!

I really think I am going to focus on child photography... perhaps lifestyle as well. And I want to find out how to volunteer to help with children who are overcoming traumatic experiences... maybe open up the world of photography to them!!!

Anyways, here's to a successful 2016 and many many more years!

I'll post some of my recent work on my profile. (ETA: Check out collection titled: Kiana & Alex Session)

And if anyone is interested in checking out my page on fb: Facebook Page
Or my website (which I am working on constantly): Website

People like you keep the world moving forward.
I'm too chicken to take a plunge.

How exciting! !!!

I took the plunge myself these last few months ago and have been enjoying every moment of it!

I combined my crafts with my photos and its working out quite well! Been doing crafts over 20yrs on and off and included a few weddings with the crafts (won't do the photography weddings haha)

Working on new paid projects right now but for the most part don't give up amd don't let the naysayers get to ya!

Have fun and congratulations

Congrats Denielle!

Just remember that when doing corporate headshots, a laser sight will up your kill ratio ;-)

Thank you all so much!
I am quite excited (and nervous).

But I've joined a ton of photography support groups on Facebook that have really helped with the business side of it.

And since I can't really work a normal 9-5 job with Dallas still needing lots of care and surgeries, I am determined to turn my passion into profit!

Oh, and I'll have a new photo of him to share with you all when I get home!!!
