A Little About Me

Hello, it’s so nice to meet you! My name is Renee and I’m a photographer, graphic designer, blogger, event planner, and product tester/reviewer that is currently expanding my brand/business but I also work a serious 9-5 full-time job. Not to mention I am feeling a strong pull towards being a Female Empowerment Life-Affirming Coach.

As a photographer,  I’ve taken some great shots of people, still life, landscape, and action packed sports. I love taking pictures and seeing my clients’ faces as they lay eyes on the images I produce for them. What a feeling that is! Since I love taking pictures so much, I’d love to take YOU’RE picture!  I am also working on some free download checklists that you as a client can download to help you in scheduling that photo session with your chosen photographer. There are so many options and sometimes our clients have a serious case of overwhelm in trying to make a decision on the smallest thing such as outfit color choices. For my fellow photogs, there’s going to something special for you as well; coming soon.

I’m also a self taught in graphic design. There is just something about creating a stunning graphic from beginning to end and sharing with the world what you’ve deemed in your heart as a true work of art. It’s the best mix of my love for photography and writing. I’ve created tons of graphics and will be sharing them with you here on this blog. I promise, you are going to LOVE them and some you will even get for free.

Recently, I’ve dipped my toes into the proverbial water to begin testing products and reviewing them with my audience, YOU! So stay tuned for those posts.

I freelance as an event planner as well. I currently work with our local Pregnancy Help Center in planning their big fundraising events.

On a more personal note: I’m a 30-something mom to a wonderful daughter and wife to the man of my dreams, Chris. I work full time as an associate project manager for a software company with a super long commute, for the past 3 years I’ve moonlighted as a sports writer for the local paper, and was considered the high school girl’s soccer team photographer. Not to mention I’m also the chapter leader and founder for Chicktime Carthage. I’m busy more often than not and sometimes feel like I can’t keep up with family and friends. Sorry, you know I love you all!

Some of my favorite things are volunteering, photography/graphic design, people watching, reading, and TV binge watching. Truthfully, on my personal areas I’m a great goal-setter but can be terrible with the follow through. I have big dreams that I am finally seeing put into action. I love God and running is my therapy.
