Pardon me. I don’t know if we have been properly introduced. Let me introduce myself through my logo:
Pink= I am surrounded by boys in my house and I need to add some femininity in my world.
Paint brush stroke= Photography is definitely an art form and I enjoy creating beauty in form, composition, movement, textures, lighting and colors.
Gold= My personal style is a classic timeless look. Jackie O. is definitely one of my style icons. However, I always dreamed of being a Solid Gold dancer. These two go together well, right?
The box= I do create structure, but I am willing to go beyond the normal with my art. I want to break through what may be traditional, and see the beauty in the everyday. Moments matter to me and I see that it is not in the posed photos that make your heart melt. I want to capture pure emotions. This means going outside of the box, standing on one leg, climbing wild trails, giggling until tears, breaking down some barriers until the photos show the raw, pure joy!
My name= Yes, I am Sheila E. My middle name is Elizabeth and I am happy to say that I dance, all the time. In the car, the kitchen, down the sidewalk- anywhere. Dancing is in my blood and it embarrasses my boys, but I think that this is one of my jobs as a parent.
Photography= This, too, is in my blood. My father (who passed almost a decade ago) was a photographer and I got to witness the joy and beauty in this craft through his eyes. I feel blessed to have found my passion and carry on my dad’s joy. Thanks for letting me share this passion with you!
So now that we have been properly introduced, I hope that you get a sense of why I am a photographer. Hopefully you will gather that my main objective is to slow down time. I have found that photography has the beautiful gift of embracing a moment so that you can always go back to it and relive the experience. We are all spinning on the beautiful blue planet for such a short time. In cherishing simple moments, life becomes rich. It would be an absolute honor to slow down time for you.
