Oh, I don’t even know what to write here. I could take various approaches.


There’s the serious approach: “Welcome to my blogsite. I’m Candace Porter, owner of Barknut Images. I have a degree in Photography from Columbia College Chicago…..” and so on, that would be the serious, professional approach.


Then there’s the 10 things to know about me approach: “I love chocolate. I listen to Salsa, Bachata, Merengue and many other “worldly” types of music, but I don’t speak the languages. My current fave guilty pleasure is Hot Cocoa with Cinnamon…..”


There is also the Here’s a bit about my Family: “I have a beautiful growing family, my Fiancé Oscar and I are getting married May 20, 2011, and we have our crazy little kids, Coconut a German Shorthaired Pointer and Cat(or Kitty when she’s being sweet) a tough transplant from New Orleans.”


Oh, how about the My Favorites approach: “Tom Petty and Frank Sinatra are two of my top most favorite performers. I’ve seen Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 5 different states somewhere around 10 different times(I’ve lost count). My favorite movie is too hard to narrow down. For a long long time it was Dazed and Confused, but it’s difficult to narrow in on just one favorite, as there are so many different genres out there. Food? Chocolate, sweets, and Italian food….”


And of course the deep soulful approach: “To me, Photography is about capturing a moment in time, but also art. My goal with my pet photography is to capture the essence of your pet in a medium that will last, and that you can share with friends and family for years to come. I strive to capture the details of your pet and the fleeting moments, not only as a photograph, but as a piece of art. The same is how I approach all my photographic adventures. It’s the details that are most easily forgotten, but the details are what brings you back to those moments quickest and deepest.”


There are many ways I could explain “Me” to you, as you can see, however follow along, and you’ll learn a lot more than any “About Me” could tell you! Of course, if there’s anything you’d like to know, drop me a line at barknutimages @ hotmail [dot] com!

    “A well-known corporation.” And it’s also unspeakable… no wonder you were uninspired 😉

    Well, it takes me awhile to catch on. I just got on and realized that is the name of your studio. I love it and you definitely have a way with words – your dad is like that. I’m not. This is so interesting. I’m so happy that you’re doing this.
