Fun Facts About Lisa------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-- I enjoy puns of all kinds. With shoulder-shakes.
-- Pet peeve- people sucking their teeth and making that God-awful sound in public. Egh.
-- Coffee. More please.  I also love all kinds of wine and have an education and background working with vino. Craft beer too.

-- I still collect shoes, though. I mean...
-- I am a creative soul with a variety of interests in addition to photography-- drawing, painting, writing, ceramics, mixed media... I want to learn encaustic next!
-- I write a blog ( www.hangingonbysillystring.com ). It comes out every other Monday, because Mondays are hard. It is essential to be silly, laugh at yourself, and be confident enough to be able to do that. I started it when going through a hard time in my life. Mostly, it's embarrassing stories about myself. It's a reminder to lighten up, not give a sh** about what others think, and to remember the bigger picture. Life is good.
-- I am also writing a book. Stay tuned.
-- My influences in fine art photography: Uta Barth, Mary Ellen Mark, Robert Frank, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sally Mann, the Impressionist painters, among many others...
-- Sports and activities! Volleyball, softball, Zumba, dance, hiking, walking by any water source or the woods...
-- I lived in Maui for three years
-- I play air guitar and sing, while driving, really well.
-- I was a part of a Creative and Performing Arts program in high school, where half of my day was all creative. Theatre, directing, writing, art history, dance..
-- My mom ran a day-care out of our house while growing up. She is the baby-whisperer. I learned everything about kiddos early. There is definitely trust and a connection with me, which is essential to documentary family photography.  
-- I have friends all over the world because of my traveling. I love them all and keep them close to my heart. I have definitely been blessed with my circle and different chapters in my life.
-- My family is amazing and we are very close. I do not know what I would do without these goofs. My nephews and niece are the cutest and most lovable little buggers ever. I want to squeeze them right now.
