Tell us about yourself:
I'm a photographer. My work includes weddings, portraits and such but I also do commercial, landscape and garden photography. I'm also an avid gardener.

Beautiful home! Love the tongue & wood interior! Also looks like you're on a nice lake. We have a walk-out basement too. I like how you did your walk-out w/ the cement patio.
