Every since I was kid I LOVE the Camerađź“·! ! Whether it's behind it taking pictures or in front of it. I don't really have a portfolio of pictures to show on Instagram but you can see alot of pictures on my Facebook of my daughter that I take. I even take pictures at my MOPS Group here in Houstin, TX at Foundry Methodist Church. I feel MOPS has help save my life and me being a first time Mom and wife. Taking pictures is always an outlet and a positive one. I am now taking pictures for my church (The Word of God Christian Fellowship Church) & I'm Thankful to God I can use my love and passion of picturing taking to Glorify God. If I can be a blessing to help this organization that has blessed my soul, I would be soooooooo very honored! I can help, I'm a stay at home wife and mother with a passion to work and a background in teaching. I have obtained a Business Administrative degree in 2004 from Sam Houston State University and a Masters degrees in Educational Leadership & Coun

Kayla, I can completely understand the need to put to use what you've learned in school to see the world differently through a camera lens. I hope you added your name to the survey above because we'll be using that list to contact mom photographers for special projects!

If I can capture a glimpse of the joy and beauty found in God's handiwork, I consider my photo a success. My preferred method is the sneak attack, so I can preserve honest and spontaneous moments. My 4 year-old twins feature prominently, usually immersed in puddle jumping, frog catching, worm hunting activities. They help me notice the rare and wondrous aspects of ordinary subjects, too. What better studio can be found than His marvelous creation?

Thanks, I just filled it out! My only public photos are on Facebook. Check any album that doesn't feature me to see my work:) You may have to friend me! My studio work predates the profile. I also published via The Mommy Network for their newsletters when I was on staff.

I'm a stepmom to a 17yr old, soon to be High School Graduate in a few days, and a mommy to a 5yr old, both boys. I have always had a camera in my hand snapping pics of everything from animals to plants, flowers and people. I remember the first time I held a camera (6yrs old) it was love at first click! My boys and my husband are my main subjects. I love capturing them in their natural settings- smiling, laughing, crying, playing, etc. I also enjoy taking photos of other things- whether it's a wedding, sweet 16's, new born babies or beautiful landscape. I am in awe of God's wonderful creations and I absolutely love being behind the camera capturing those moments and freezing them forever in time, to love and cherish, forever.

I am a mother of one and he is such a mover that when I am able to catch moments through the lens I am able to see that memory over and over again. I photograph pretty much everything, but my true love is birth photography. I see God in everything that I see, but to witness something as amazing as childbirth, it just takes my breath away to see the work that God put into designing each babe in His perfect image. I just love what I do!

I love taking pictures,as a mom of 5 boys I cant always remember everything. So I always take pictures it triggers my memory. And its something I can always save. I took classes in Highschool and then as an adult took classes at our local Jr.College. Pictures are truly worth a 1000 words.
