Hi there! I am so glad your here….My name is Charlene, and I have held a few job titles and am lots of things to lots of people in my life but I can can now say proudly I am a wife, daughter, granddaughter, mother, and sister to the most amazing people in the world. But for me, and just for me…I am a photographer and I have a crazy love for, underwater photography, maternity, labor & delivery, story telling with children, and glamour photography! Really, I just want to tell your story, or help you create a story for the day. I don’t want to just be there for a bit, I want to be there to tell your whole story!
So a little about my story and where I am and how I got here.
As a child I always wanted to be able to draw, however the picture in my head never matched up to what ended up on the paper. Soon after being done dealing with my frustrations, my mother gave me my first camera – and so my love for photography was born. I love looking back at all the old pictures and seeing how far I have come. I am grateful my mother and great grandmother were generous when it came to getting tall that film developed! Well if you combine that with the 10 books I have started writing and a unknown number of books I have read, it leads me to want to tell your story.
For me the most rewarding part of photography for me is seeing your confidence levels skyrocket in the blink of an eye. I think we all need to see our selves as other’s do! Each soul is so beautiful and you deserve to see your beauty as other’s do!
My most favorite things to say are….Mean people suck…Life is way to short …Cool Beans…and AwesomeSauce…
I really believe with all my heart that…
1. Everyone deserves to be treated with RESPECT. I believe it is a right given until proven that you do NOT deserve it.
2. God only gives you what you can handle and that when you are ready for it he will just let you have it…even if you think you are not ready, he knows you are!
3. When you are on your right path in life the devil will put thing in your way to make it harder, keep pushing through!
4. That life was preplanned before we born, and that the paths we choose will all bring us to the same place in the end!
