Hi my name is Maria Jimenez. I have lived in New Braunfels most of my life. I am a mom of 3 amazing kids who keep me very busy. I was a stay at home mom for a few years so kids are definitely something my life revolves around. When I am not chasing around my little ones you can find me behind a camera lens somewhere doing what I love most and that’s photography. I have been a photographer for about 3 years now. I started out as a newborn photographer and now families have asked me to photograph their little ones as they continue to grow up. It’s been an awesome experience. I am so excited for this new chapter in my life and also very happy to see and work with your little ones for years to come
Hi, my name is Sharon Brewington. My family moved from Colorado Springs, Colorado to New Braunfels, Texas 10 months ago. I am originally from Sylvester Georgia where I was born and raised. I have been in Early Childhood Education for 24 years. I attended Pike Peak community college and have taken a couple of Early Childhood classes. I enjoy early childcare because it allows me the opportunity to assist with molding young children’s mind and helping to guide the future leaders of America.
