While doing my own search for a photographer for my annual family photos, I realize that so many photographers put very little on their websites about themselves. I find this so odd, because in my opinion, the person behind the camera is just as important, if not more important than their portfolio... so I decided to write a little something about me over the next little while. Every second Tuesday, I will write a little tidbit, naming the blog posts, tidbit Tuesday. This week's Tidbit is all about my childhood!
I was born and raised here in Saskatoon, growing up on the westside (Avenue I North, to be exact), where I looked forward to summer and playing with all the neighbor kids. I remember following my brother and his friends around a lot (he is 4 years older than me), and always picked fights because me, and my best friend, loved to wrestle with him. Until we would end up hurt and crying to my mom who always have him crap for beating us up. Luckily my brother and I have a much better relationship as adults, and now that we have both started families of our own, we get along great.
It's funny because my earliest childhood memory happens to be me getting my photo taken, when I was 3 years old. My brother and I in our PJ's standing in front of the sterio and my parents telling us to get closer together and smile! I'm not sure if I just remember it because I have the photo evidence, but I love that my first memory is of me being in front of the camera. I will have to go and dig that photo up one day, but until then, here is an oldie of my brothers kids a couple of years ago. It's amazing how much changes in just 2 years! They are so big now!
