What do you like most about Gallery Blocks™?
I love Gallery Blocks™ because they are something new and different to offer to our clients. This is not a product that our client can go and pick up at Cost Co! These pieces are custom designed with our client in mind.
How are you selling Gallery Blocks™ to your customers?
We sell by making suggestions on design and display.
How are you packaging the Gallery Blocks™ you sell?
The Gallery Blocks™ work nicely in a sturdy fabric bag for delivery.
Where are you from?
I grew up in Waco, Texas but have lived in Iowa on and off since 1997. Wow. Sounds like a long time ago! I've been in Winterset, Iowa - a tiny town of about 5,500 for almost 11 years (give or take a stint or two in Colorado).
What is your favorite thing about being a pro-photographer?
I love the interaction with people and especially young families. I love getting to watch kids grow up!
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Raising my kids.
Any funny stories to share?
There are stories to tell from every session! Recently though, one of my favorite little people came to a session that I did shooting an ad. I included her mommy in the ad and it was so cute to hear her directing the shoot!! It dawned on me how much these kids are always listening and watching as I heard her repeat some of the same things I might say! (She's 3!)
What is your favorite food?
I'm a vegetarian and lean towards vegan, so my favorite foods aren't the norm! lol I do think everything tastes better with avacado! Yumm!!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I always thought I'd be a teacher or a writer. I still love both!
