What kind of camera do you have?

Why are you gluten free?
September 2010 I had thought about going gluten free (because of frequent stomach aches) for a while but really didn’t want to.(My Mom and youngest sister were already gf) We went out to dinner with some friends and I was miserable most of the time. That was the turning point! I was sick of having stomach aches all the time and being on the edge of feeling good. So ever since I have been gluten free and loving it. Its not really that hard after you get over it and it is totally worth it! One of the worst things is people who don’t think that it is a valid allergy, I have been made fun of for being gf so I don’t usually tell people. No delicious taste of gluten is worth the aftermath. Gluten sensitivity is a real allergy! I have had my genes tested and I do in fast have 2 gluten sensitive genes which means I’m going to be gluten free for life. and I’m perfectly happy that way!
How long have you had your DSLR camera?
I bought it at the very end of March 2011, and got in in the mail at the begining of April. It was love at first sight, and those 2 hours of battery charging time seemed really long.
When did you become interested in photography?
I have liked taking pictures for a long time, but I didn’t really decide that I loved photography until a couple months before I bought my DSLR, Even then I didn’t think that photography might be something i would want to pursue as a business. That all changed about 4 or 5 months ago. Now I have a passion for photography and I there is no better feeling then holding my camera up to my face and framing out the perfect shot.
Do you enjoy being homeschooled?
Yes, I love it and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
What is your hair routine?
I follow the curly girl method, outlined in the Curly Girl handbook by Lorriane Massey. Basically I don’t use shampoo, but only conditioner and gel. To get your curly hair to look the best you first need a hair cut that caters to your curly style. One of my friends older sister cuts my hair ,I have also had a great experience at a curly hair salon. When you shower: wet your hair and then finger comb a generous amount of conditioner from the middle of the shaft to the ends and then scrunch. allow some water to run through your hair but not much you want most of the conditioner to stay in. flip your head upside down and scrunch out the water then scrunch in about a quarter sized amount of gel. with your head still upside down using either a microfiber towel or a tee shirt scrunch your hair gently then scrunch in more gel. I also use 2 prong clips at my roots while my hair is drying. Its quite the hair-do ;)
