My dad has had a love for photography for as long as I can remember and my parents have a cabinet full of photo albums and boxes of old pictures that I would spend hours (especially during long Minnesota winters) looking through over and over and asking my parents so many questions about them. Then as I got older my dad gifted me my first â€śrealâ€ť camera, the new canon Rebel line, which was film, and I loved it. I took a lot of macro shots and tried to learn as much as I couldâ€¦then life got busy and I put down my camera for a number of years. The birth of my son 3 years ago has really inspired me to pick it back up and document this special time while he is little and inquisitive about everything. I want him to have boxes of memories to look through when he is older!
