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.
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.
