I Am Sort Of A Photographer


I’ve been told I have the “eye” for it, which I guess is true but I could write a novel of photographers (many I know) that are such amazing photographers I’m not even anywhere near their league. But the thing is, I love it. I don’t always love dealing with getting paid or clients but I love taking the pictures. I’ve done weddings, maternity, newborns, engagements, portraits, animals and boudoir. My favorite is boudoir and I’ve only done that twice, sadly. It’s hard to convince people to get skimpy for you when you have a camera.

Here is my gallery online, though you can find even more of my pictures on Flickr. You can also find me on Facebook and I have some of my pictures up (these are even for sale) on Pinterest. However I am taking some time off because of my back problems and some other medical issues. I think next spring I will be back and ready to do portrait photography again. For now, it’s about my scenic shots.


I Am A Forever Masshole

I’m on a trip to Omaha Nebraska to shoot a wedding for my cousin as a favor, because I’m too nice for my own good. I’m glad to help out though and it’s great to see family but also I’m an introvert at heart, I have to have time to myself a lot or I fall apart. Right now I’m sitting in my hotel room trying to rest my back before the wedding and watching a sitcom.

I went out into the city earlier to try to get my hair done and it was all a big FAIL. First of all everywhere I drive seems to have speed bumps, which sucks if you are trying to stand up your phone to follow the GPS and every time you hit a bump it falls on the floor. Almost every channel on the radio is country, which I’m not a fan of. The rest seemed to be pop and Jesus stuff. I finally found what appeared to be an 80s channel and that was fine.

I just feel out of my element here and keep wanting to be in my hotel room. The scenery, the long roads you can see off in the distance are fascinating me. I’m ready to get the wedding done, I hope it all goes well. It’s good to get away sometimes I think, it reminds you of how great you have it at home.
