I am a Combat Documentation Production Specialist, fancy talk for Photographer and Videographer in the US Army, and I love every minute of it! It's exciting and takes me everywhere you can possibly imagine!
I am a mother to two awesome (and sometimes evil) tiny people, the eldest called Ninjajbaby and the youngest called Demonchild!

I guess I've a Gypsy Soul. I move a lot, but I'm from and currently live in Red Bluff, CA. A tiny farmer and rancher town in (waaay) Northern California.
I started having a real interest in photography in the fourth grade, back in 1998-1999. I ran around everywhere with disposable cameras, usually having at least three on me until I got my very first camera, a film camera, a Canon AE-1 that I still have and use.
I started being extremely serious about it freshman year of high school, 2003-2004.

My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 10, 2014, 2:31 PM

I was shipped out to Basic Training for the US Army on September 3, 2008.  I had turned 19 twelve days before I was flown from a tiny farming town in Northern California to South Carolina.  I had never felt humidity before then, and crikey did it suck.  I didn't care, I was doing what I had to do to become a professional photographer, and the Army gave me a job as a Combat Photographer.

This is the Sundial Bridge in Redding, California.  Just 30 minutes north on the 5 from my little rodeo town, Red Bluff.  It just celebrated it's 10 year anniversary about two months ago.

Band of Brothers by CombatCamera09

This account that I'm currently using was created January 11, 2009.  I was in AIT and had starting my camera training, and I wanted some place to put my photos and get inspiration from others.  I didn't go out of my way to talk to people, I have, and still do have, a really hard time initiating conversations with people.  So I quietly stalked around looking at peoples pictures and being incredibly jealous because I wanted to be good like so many people on here were.

Pokemon by PriSuicun
This is the first photograph I ever faved. It took me an hour of staring at my screen to finally talk myself in to clicking the fave button.  I was intimidated to do it.

In 2012, my unit decided to send me to photograph a military funeral in Sacramento Ca. That decision changed me, who I was, who I am, and who I will be, all from the sheer sense of mortality when you are standing by a coffin of a soldier who was only a few months older than you.

As I continue to grow and learn, I want to say thanks to DA and my friends on here.  Y'all support me when I reach out, bounce photography ideas with each other, I've even been taught a thing or two on here.

I still am a US Army photographer, and soon I'll be a wildland firefighter, so be expecting some hopefully exciting pictures from me.  Thanks y'all. :hug:

Welcome to my journal! I love to do features and sometimes vent about my life to my friends here on DeviantArt! Don't be afraid to start a conversation with me or just leave a comment!
I'll eventually find a use for this little box down here.
