start where you are

2013 got off to a rocky start.  i was feeling physically and emotionally drained.  meanwhile, i had committed to starting a 52 week self-portraiture class for women*, led by two inspiring women.  i expressed my trepidation and they offered words of encouragement and insight, telling me that perhaps this class is just what i needed.  and they were right.  photography, self-portraits nonetheless, are helping me find my way, just like they said.  and, as an added bonus, it is offering my daughter and i a different way to be creative together.  these are from tonight’s whimsical photo shoot.

“okay, mom, one more then dessert.”

then i pulled out the bubbles & coco’s expression is genuine delight & surprise.  this one is my favorite.  not posed, just sheer happiness.  hot damn, i am really loving this photography thing.
