A Little Q A Little A

I pilfered this off a photog's blog and thought it would be a nice way for any future clients (I know you're out there!) to get to know me a bit.

Plus...I'm bored.

1. What is your name?

2. Where are you from?
I grew up in a little city in Wisconsin called Beloit and I now call Milwaukee home. I adore Milwaukee. It has a big city feel without the big city price or headache.

3. Is photography your full time job?
I wouldn't exactly call it a "job" yet. I kind of fell into it and I'm deciding to make a go of it after some "changes" in my job situation....ha ha. No time like the present! Right now I'm a stay-at-home-mommy and a hobbyist making my way to semi-pro I guess.

4. How did you get into photography?
Kind of by accident. I always loved taking pictures, but my husband got me a digital SLR for Christmas this year and I just fell in love. There was a major sense of satisfaction of turning out beautiful images with my new gift. Turns out I actually had an "eye" for I decided to run with it. I love having a camera in my hand.

5. Did you go to school for photography?
Nope...not yet. I'm finishing up my BS in Sociology right now and I'm hoping to take a photo class or two soon.

6. What is your favorite subject to shoot?
Babies and kids. They are natural hams. I love catching wide eyes and funny expressions.

7. How long have your been photographing?
Not long at all, but I've taken to it. I started getting more serious about it about 3 months ago.

8. Have you learned a lot about photography?
A bit, but I would love to learn more. I love learning a new skill and applying it immediately to see what I get.

9. What's in your camera bag?
Nikon D40X camera
2 Lenses
1 gig memory card
4 gig memory card
Battery and battery charger
Pen and small notebook (for notes)
Business cards

10. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I don't know....things change so quickly with me. My initial plan was to be working full time in social work. I'd still like to do that eventually, because I think social work is incredibly important. But, the love I've developed for photography should probably not be ignored. I'd also like to have one or two more kids and a bigger house.

11. Are you married?
I am. It'll be 2 years in July

12. Who photographed your wedding?
The amazing Patrick and Tracy O' Connell from Expressive Photography out of Mequon. They are excellent.

13. As a bride, what is one piece of advice you would give a new bride?
Invest in your photography, it's the only thing you really have left at the end of the day.

14. How did you come up with your company name?
It's kind of an "inside joke" in a way. My name starts with A, so that applies. I went with "Type A" because it's a personality type that centers around perfectionism and strong concentration/control. I wanted it to be reflected that I strive for perfection. Also, I thought it was kind of funny, because I'm a definite "Type A" person.

15. What color is your hair?
Ugly blonde and brown. I'm getting it done this week. It NEEDS it.

16. What is your favorite drink?
Mountain Dew.

17. Do you have a favorite TV show?
I have many favorites. The mainstays are Scrubs, The Office, 30 Rock, and Jeopardy. Scrubs is ending forever this week and I am incredibly sad.

18. Do you have any kids?
Yes, my frequent model and muse Betty

20. What else can you tell us that not many people know about you?
Eh, I'm kind of an open book so I don't harbor many secrets. I served Johnny Cash a slushie once. That's pretty exciting.
