I didn't take any of these photos; I'm fairly certain they are all by my father. I grew up with a camera constantly present, so it's no wonder I've also developed a love of photography. It's fun to look through old photos.
This was the photo I chose for my college graduation announcements... I know. Haha :) My son calls this one "Captain Ma"
This pic pretty much sums up my childhood - digging for worms in the mud. I'm definitely an outdoorsy girl.
I like to think that I've gotten most of my creative talents from my parents - photography from my dad, clothes-making from my mom. Here is one of her hat creations (it may have been a basket, but it worked as a hat, too).
My son looks just like me in this photo. I'm probably the same age here as he is now. Always the at the forefront of fashion - wearing my ballet shoes out in the mud.
