Charlene Precious' Profile

About

I take pictures because it’s an obsession, a compulsion, an addiction, a need to create, to document, and to express. It satisfies my creative cravings. It magnifies the beauty in the simplest, most ordinary things and gets me wound up over them. It’s the joy in knowing that I just created a fine photograph and then often not knowing exactly how I did it at all and hoping that I can do it again and again.

Picture My World (formerly known as A Photo A Day), began on December 26, 2009 and has evolved from just a fun Facebook and Flickr photo album into a precious photo journal told with words and photographs. Picture My World then paved the path to opening my Etsy Shop in May of 2011. As a self-taught photographer with a knack for design, I was able to turn my photography into nostalgic art perfect for home decorating, gift giving, and e-greeting. Today I have the luxury of sharing the sentiments of my photographs and connect with fine art lovers all over the world and this brings me more joy than I ever imagined. It made me realize that I wanted to touch lives with my photography even in just a small way.

Truly, I am so grateful and so happy to have the opportunity to share my work and my world with you, so thank you so much for stopping by! I hope for one of two things: that something catches your eye or that you leave this shop with a smile. :) And whenever you have a moment of boredom, I invite you to tag along my photographic journey at charleneprecious.com/blog! :)

With love,
Charlene Precious
