Chrysta Rae

If you are looking for the PHOTOGRAPHY SCAVENGER HUNT girl... you found her!!  The 2014 SPRING FLING round of the Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt is currently underway. 
Information about the next photography scavenger hunt sign up will be announced on day 10 or reveals from this round. (around the end of May)

I am an interior photographer for a living. Highlighting beauty in everyday homes is a challenge, and my new passion.

There are 2 people in every picture: the subject, and the photographer.  I am a rookie in this world, and the more I find other photographers, the more I realize I have SO much to learn. But I love it... I LOVE it and hope and pray I find a comfy place in this community of inspiring people.

IF YOU HAVE A CHILD WHO STRUGGLES IN SCHOOL
______________________________________________________

Meet Grayden
He's 9.
He's a dork, loveable, goofy, fun, silly, athletic, energetic, adorable, wonderful, kind, sweet, thoughtful, and charming.

He is Canadian - so yes, yes he plays hockey. 
And not "just" hockey… he is in the top 15 kids out of HUNDREDS in his age group and is currently playing AAA hockey.  
Yeah...
He's pretty much got it all. 

OH wait… see… 'Cept just…. well there's this one thing.

School.

Yep.
So since kindergarten we knew there was something…
just not triggering for him.
He couldn't read,
he couldn't recognize letters, numbers...
he struggled in every area of it all.
(he did make 6 trillion friends, however)

He's currently in Grade 4, reading at a beginner Grade 2 level IF that.

I shot a house today, that I found… listed by another realtor.

I think hiring a professional photographer next time…
may be worth it.
