Lets see... what about me...

I am a single mommy who, like most mommies, is obsessed with my daughter. She is the reason I spend so much money on this darn Nikon D50... that I still have yet to figure out.

I am in the military and station in California, which is where I am from. I have been in the military for about 4 years, and REALLY want to get out after these last 2.

I LOVE photography, but im really no good at it. I would love to get good at it, but I just never have the time to sit down and "study" this camera. Oh well.... maybe someday.

3 Nov - Recently had a few pictures stolen... and am NOT liking that one bit! Just about all of my pictures and for Friends and Family view... until I figure something else out.

    "Takes very, very good pics! She's a sweety, who'll answer your questions about photography, and will direct you to a great book! Not like those who won't help out a newbie! It's obvious that she's a great mother, who adores her daughter (as you can tell in her pictures and captions)! It is my pleasure to call Melani my flickr friend! Hopefully, our paths will cross one day!"

    "I am truly happy to have met Melani here on flickr. It if my only hopes that one day our paths will cross outside of flickr. The love and joy she has through her photography for her daughter is wonderful. Her photography expresses what a mother and daughter should be like. Her daughter is beautiful. While I am waiting for our paths to cross, I will use flickr as a way to continue to watch her grow as a photographer. Thanks for being a friend Melani : )"

    "We not only share the same name but a mutual love of photography. Melani is such a warm person- who always has an encouraging word and is so open with her photography. I feel blessed to have a glimpse into her world with her beautiful little girl. I am a better photographer for knowing her and seeing the life she reveals in her pictures."

    "On flickr I have met many great people but there are some who I can call truly a friend and that can be found in Melani. To see in her photos how she loves her daughter is truly an inspiration. I hope you will come to know this wonderful person through her stream and become her friend."
