Smile Hello from Sealy, Texas

Sealy is about 50 miles west of Houston.
I am 49 years old and have been serious about portrait photography for about 5 or 6 years now. It was in late 2002, early 2003 when I purchased my first DSLR (Nikon D100), some studio lights and a few backdrops.
My daughter was my inspiration. She was born in 1998 and I never brought her to a professional photographer for a portrait. It was my aim to take them myself. On the day she was born the hospital tried to sell my "baby's first portrait" which was no more than a mug shot. I chuckled and said, "that's not her first portrait. I took her first portrait in the delivery room!". In retrospect, I wish I had taken her to a professional as my skills back then were pretty much non-existent. Ok, now I'm rambling.
My Photoshop skills are pretty decent, but I know that there is always room for more knowledge. I love Photoshop and this forum seems like a great place to be. I only wish I had found this forum years ago!
