Journal Entry: September 27, 2019
I was very young when I noticed my mother carrying a camera. I recall her mentioning she wanted to convert our hall closet to a darkroom. My grandma would not hear of it. Here we are today. Neither of them were alive when I decided to follow in her footsteps. Only I shoot digital and can view it immediately.
My first Maternity session. I was invited to New Jersey. I borrowed a camera from my friend Martha W. and I also was using a little camera I had. I don't recall the point and shoot.
Expectant mother was on bed rest and I was terrified. I left there feeling wonderful and so glad I went. Things were never the same again for me. A few months later I asked a relative if he could get me a birthday gift that I could learn to love. My faithful Nikon D7000 semi-professional camera. Thank you, Uncle Chuck! also aka like my dad. Who gave me away on my wedding day. He gets to witness what his sister was unable to continue but through me.
That's all she wrote. Now I am shooting with an intimidating but lovely Sony Mirrorless full frame. Sony AR7III 42 megapixels.
