Love my new home town of Schertz, TX!
Vintage Creek photography has been featured in the September issue of Schertz Magazine! (Click HERE if you want to read the full article) The past few weeks have been so crazy and wonderful. With each new project I meet some of the nicest people.
Sometimes it’s hard to talk about yourself when asked, but It’s not so hard when it involves something that you love. Schertz magazine contacted me because of the underwater editorial shoot we did in July. Meeting with the Schertz magazine staff to talk about my photography business was something straight out of a movie. There I am, sitting at a coffee shop with a reporter, a tape recorder held at the ready. It was picturesque. Chuck McCollough, who wrote the article, was easy to talk to and I could tell he loved his community. Each day I’m learning that Texas pride is not just a cliché, but a way of life. Texans really care about each other and where they live. Just talk to any Texan and you’ll start to feel it too.
The Schertz Family YMCA has been beyond helpful as well. Not only was the swim director, Deseret, willing to go above and beyond to help me in my time of need (try finding a 7ft+ deep white bottom pool last minute), but she also was hilarious! We also had two life guards there all day to keep us safe. I couldn’t let them go home without a souvenir photo.
Every time I get in to the water, I’m challenged in new ways. I’m stressed, I’m hungry, and I’m so very tired. But being in a supportive community and working with such caring people just makes me want to work harder. I don’t want you to have just any underwater photos, I want to give you the BEST underwater photos.
I don’t want you to get the idea that this a solo gig either, it’s really a family effort. Not only do I get amazing support from my husband, I get it from my parents and other relatives as well. Day in and Day out they are there to help with large and small tasks. Not very often do you get to see photo’s of me underwater, so here’s a selfie! My sister in law is an AMAZING assistant and I really can’t do it with out her help. Thanks Becky!
I’m loving my new community and the support they are offering me. I am looking forward to the ways I can share some of that love back. Little by little, Vintage Creek is getting bigger and bigger. All with the help of my new Schertz friends.
Feel free to contact me about any projects you might have in mind.
