I've been tagged by Steven Kang

There are several photographers that have been exchanging comments on each others website and I have been honored by many of them with their comments. I appreciate them so much. This morning I was tagged by Steven Kang Photography. http://stevenkangphotography.blogspot.com/



THE RULES:

1. Post these rules before you give you the facts.

2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.

3. At the end of your post, choose (tag) someone and list their name (linking to their page.

4. Leave them a comment on their blog letting them know they've been tagged!



So here I go:



1. I am married for twenty years with three children, Nicholas, Nathan, (actually Nathaniel) and Christopher. Yes they had a hard time learning how to spell those long names in Kindergarden.

2. I am a wedding photographer, I guess you figured that one out, but I really really didn't want to do weddings at all at first. I would get too nervous thinking about it, but now that is all I do.

3. I am a workaholic. You will never find me sitting with nothing to do. If I watch movies, I am working and glancing.

4. I have two brothers and two sisters. One brother and One sister were adopted, and I wouldn't change that for the world. They have enriched our lives.

5. My middle name is May, my dad told me once that he named me that because I was supposed to be born in May but was born in June, but they had already decided on the name and Laura May sounded better than Laura June.

6. My maiden name was Doucet, so yes I am from Cajun Country. But I love my name Laura Kelley, that my husband gave me.

7. I was totally inspired by a photographers work named Samvel Sevada. His lighting and his images are breathtaking. The colors that he had in these few images below was breathtaking to me. I strive to have that ability to paint the canvas as he did here. http://laurakelleyphotography.com/4.JPG

8. The people I would love to see again is my grandmother and grandfather. They have both passed away, but they were such adorable people. They raised their kids to be precious, humble, and love other people. You never walk in the room with my dad, and my aunts and uncles without their being a warm and kind greeting and a smile on their face. My grandmother was very cajun but very wise. She knew about what mattered in the world and saw through all the clutter. We had wonderful talks. My grandfather once told me I looked just like his sister, and being with me made him feel like he was with the young sister again. That stuck with me for this long. I miss them both so much. I hope that I have turned out just like them. They are honorable people.

Okay, that is my story. Now I have to tag someone right? I will tag someone I met this week. She has a nickname Alabama, from me. Tawnya Hood is her real name. She looks just like Sweet home alabama girl. And I loved her the first moments we talked. I told her not to tell me she didn't have a southern accent, it would spoil it for me. http://beautyoflife.wordpress.com/ is her blog.
Oh and why not another......http://www.aliciacaine.blogspot.com/ Alicia Caine is a fantastic childrens photographer that is branching out to be a wedding photographer. Her children portraits are really gorgeous so I know she will do amazing. So I think she should also be tagged....

Thanks Steven, I learned something about myself actually. I talk too much.
