Since I was 13 years old, I have smoked cigarettes. They were there for me through every event in my half grown and adult life. Three weeks ago, I quit. For the first time, I am without my life long friend and while I do have more energy and I feel better and even my skin looks better, I still think of my friend every day. But, I am not one without resolve. I am moving forward and part of that is growing my photography business.
I will be having specials monthly and driving my friends and family crazy begging for support.
I will be independent and completely so.
I recently discovered that I do actually enjoy shooting children and babies. I have fallen IN LOVE with custom pet photography. Having two awesome pets helps a lot.
I would love to come back out to Midland to continue my Pump Jack Princess series, too.
I went home to Midland for Christmas and while my family doesn't celebrate, I did some celebrating of my own and some pet photos of my sister and her babies.
I got to see one of my dearest friends whom I haven't seen in about a decade. She has a bright and beautiful soul. We spent until the wee hours of the morning in my mother's crazy room that is jam packed full of antiques and strange artifacts of the past drinking wine and reminiscing about the past. I wish she were closer, but she is in Portland and I'll take her when I can.
My dog, Dasha, the guardian.
Another old friend, Jessica and her son. We also spent into the wee hours of the morning...something about a fake gay club and the rest is hazy. :)
And I also got to spend some time with a new friend, Shelly. We went to High School together but only connected a few months ago here in Dallas. We've grown close and I'm so happy to have found her.
