Hi I'm Beth!
I know a lot of people who read this blog already know me but for those who are new, here's a little about me.
My photography background
I got my first DSLR camera in March, 2016. My sister and I saved every penny we could for several years to buy a used, entry level camera. Although I only had a cheap point and shoot previously, I had loved photography for several years. I was so excited to finally have a "real" camera! At the beginning I had no idea how to use it. My uncle (who is also a photographer) taught me a few things but very little of it stuck right away. Although I used it frequently it took me several months and many YouTube videos to learn what settings to adjust when and how. Once I finally figured out how to work it there was no stopping me! By fall I was comfortable enough to be able to take my sister's senior pictures. I was so proud of myself for doing my first "real" shoot! I have come a long way since then, gotten a new camera and continue to learn as I gain experience and take online courses.
These are a few of my favorite things...
Ask anyone in my family and they will tell you I'm an absolute classical music nerd! My parents are both music lovers so I have been singing and playing piano and violin since I was little. I have more recently started learning viola and clarinet as well. Music has always been one of by biggest passions. Even though I have chosen photography as my career I will never leave my love for music behind!
Another thing I am obsessed with is coffee! I don't remember when I first tasted it but I wasn't allowed to drink it regularly until a year and a half ago. Boy, let me tell you, that was a happy day! I like trying new recipes for specialty coffee drinks, especially if they include whipped cream. I also enjoy trying out new cute coffee shops.
No post about my favorite things would be complete without talking about my adorable pets! I've had many pets throughout the years but these are the ones I have now. On the top left are my cats Panther (black) and Hiedy (light calico). Hiedy is the sweetest cat I have ever had. She loves people and is never too shy to ask a stranger for attention. Panther loves belly rubs and laying around getting chubby ;) Snickers (bottom left) can be a little yappy at times but her loyalty and cuteness makes up for it. Last but not least is Bella (on the right), the newest addition to our family. She loves being pet and protecting me from dangerous things like Snickers. She is a total attention hog.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my obsessions! What are you favorite things? Tell me in the comments!
