My name is Lisa Christine Preece
I’m from a small city in Ontario, Canada
I am 21 years old [March 16th, 1988] and I’m the youngest of two.
My sister, Amanda, is 24 years old, and she’s proudly making her way to being one incredible policewoman.
I started photography in the winter of 2006 just for fun.
But I got seriously into it in the spring of 2007.
No, I have never gone to school for it, and I’m not sure if I even will.
If I do go to school, I would most likely take some business courses.
I want to one day have my own studio.
If it were to be in my house, that woud be even better.
I love working from home.
I learn alot of what I know off of youtube, and reading books on photography.
My biggest inspiration is Norma Jean Baker [AKA: Marilyn Monroe]
My favourite fashion era’s are definately between the 30s and the 70s.
I have 3 pets.
-A pup that is a year and a half named Jaydee [shes a mix of collie, lab and shephard]
-A black cat [with a white tip on her tail] named Faith. She’s about 17 pounds, and hates everybody.
-A white longhaired cat with orange spots named Marilyn. Shes cuddly but timid with new faces.
My camera is practically attatched to me.
I shoot with a Nikon D80 and the only lens I own right now is an 18-135mm
I baught it in April of 2008, and I’m still learning new things about it.
It’s a challange sometimes, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I have a boyfriend.
His name is Adam. We’ve been together since September 1st, 2007.
I have known him since grade school, but was way too shy to talk to him because I had the BIGGEST crush on him.
He still gives me butterflies.
My parents are still together. They are soul mates and I love them so so much.
I’ve lived in three houses. All of which were named after trees
Forest, Maple, Aspen.
But then again…A LOT of streets in my town are named after trees.
It’s kind of weird.
I don’t have alot of friends.
But I have ones that care.
I would take a bullet for them.
My oldest friends are Shelby, Kallyn and Jenny.
I’ve known Shelby since I was 3 years old. We met when I moved into my house on Maple St.
I’ve known Kallyn since I was in Junior Kindergarten. Her parents used to babysit my sister and I. She lived just 7 houses down.
I’ve known Jenny since 2nd grade. She’s basically my little sister.
My best friends are Jenny, Katie, Ash, Thea and Adam.
I met Katie in highschool, and we’ve been really close ever since.
She recently moved out to British Columbia, but she’s still, and always will be, one of my very best friends. I miss her everyday.
Ash and Thea are twins, and they are both such amazing girls. Ash has a beautiful son named Dallas who is 2 years old and he is just as full of life as she is. Thea is one of the most hilarious people I’ve ever met.
My favourite colours are chocolate brown and pink. [those are even the colours of my room! my walls are chocolate brown, and my ceiling is pale pink. I also have a light grey carpet with a white duvet on my queen size bed. I call it my neopolitan room]
My lucky number is 21. I don’t know why.
My favourite shows are:
-Degrassi [the new ones and old ones]
-All the top model shows [america, canada, australia, britain…etc]
-Two and a Half Men
-16 and Pregnant/Teen Mom
-The Secret Life Of The American Teenager
-Saved by the Bell
My favourite movies are:
-Into The Wild [AMAZING movie***]
-A Walk To Remember
My favourite books are:
-Norma Jean: My Secret Life With Marilyn Monroe
-A Walk To Remember
-Catcher In The Rye
I HATE people who judge others based on their looks.
Personality is everything.
I don’t like posers, or other artists who try and steal someones glory.
I don’t like when people laugh at others physical imperfections.
I have an eye problem.
I was born without a muscle in my right eye.
I’ve had three surgeries on it.
Yes I realize I’m different. Thank you for always pointing it out.
What do you want me to do about it?
I have big dreams, and I’ll always continue to achieve them.
Nobody will get in my way.
You can try and destroy my spirits…but you’ll get nowhere.
The negative just feeds my motivation to do it even more.
My name is Lisa, and I’m a Photographer.
