So many many (I’m not going to give my age away) years ago, before professional photography, kids, the army, and new York….. I did hair and nails and I really loved doing nails 🙂 I’ve started seeing the nail wrap coming back to fix broken nails…., but how many of you know that there was also a more stylish way to do nail wraps besides just gluing a silk wrap to your nail??

That “Copycat Photographer” ~ Central Texas Fine Arts Photographer

This has happened to me many times, I have now realized it’s just not worth being mad and I will HAPPILY tell whoever wants to know, how I created an image, what tools and props I used, and what PS work I did to an image. All you have to do is ask. 🙂 share and grow.

So after a great amount of thought, tears, and debate I have decided to close my doors for now.

  I will continue to blog, share photos that I take,  and I will never stop photographing what I love,  I just won’t be taking on clients for at least a year if not more. 


So time to celebrate new things to come!  And rejoice in what the Lord has given us!
