Some find their passion early in life while with others it takes a bit more time. The first camera I bought was a digital point and shoot to document my study abroad in Japan. I knew practically nothing about photography but enjoyed taking pictures nonetheless. It wasn’t until my oldest was born that I began to seriously study photography. One thing led to another and in 2015 my husband gifted me with my first DSLR camera. A year later I decided to start this blog, To Write a Picture, to document my progress. I’ve come a long way from the first picture I snapped on my DSLR but I still have far to go and much to learn. Here you will find personal projects, the stories behind my favorite photos, and photography tips.
