I Am Not a Kid!!! And the Fall of a Mentor...

I should be working and prepping for the photo shoot I have this afternoon… But I am not. I am having arguments with myself in the shower that I win. I am fighting mad and on the verge of tears for the last solid 24 hours for numerous reasons and I am honestly fed the F*** up with it!
(Climbs atop soapbox the size of Nevada, drops repelling gear at my feet, puts on a skull emblazoned tee shirt, swipes pink hair dye in her hair, puts on heavy eyeliner and red lipstick, lights a cigarette and cracks open a huge can of Monster- slurping a mouthful back hard before grabbing her rhinestone encrusted microphone)
Number one- first and foremost. I am an adult. I am a 35 year old woman who has been standing on her own two feet since the age of 19. Were bad choices made? Of course! It’s called life, people. I also call that my first marriage- it last 6.5 years. However. I have grown and learned from that major mistake to become what I am today. I am a creative person! I am an artist, a photogr…

Sunday I went to yet another fabulous photo shoot put on by the Beauty with Brains group. I took way too many pictures, had way too much fun, and cursed out loud more then once... But it was awesome!!! A turn of the century firehouse turned cultural arts center for the area youth was our location. And ya'll know me... I am a sucker for anything fire department related!!!

I haven't vanished, I promise. The daily job has been beating my free time p pretty badly, And what little time I am not scheduled to work, I am still working- meaning camera attached to face and hands taking gorgeous snaps of beautiful women!!

And everyone knows it is easier and faster to take the pictures then it is to edit them, so guess where else the spare time goes??? That's right- drinking copious amounts of monster, tweaking and playing with photos while my tushie takes the shape of my computer chair. But it is all fun and very worth it in the end.















I have even done a a couple paid gigs to makes the money and give a lovely woman gorgeous pictures for her special guy!!

On top of all that, I have been working on more art, playing with new styles of doodles and water color painting. Maintaining the house duties, had SD Mom in town for a few days, and booking paid gigs for the future left and right. Sunday I have another one of those epic group shoots in K'zoo that I a…
