If you’ve been to the studio…. well, ever, then you might have met Megan Lopez. She has been working with me the longest of all the makeup artists I call on for my clientele, and she’s seen my studio grow from working out of my apartment to having my own place on the square. […]
Due some unanticipated circumstances, these photos turned out nothing like the model and I had originally planned, but we changed our plans and went with it, and I love them.
A new little fresh baby around the holidays the ultimate Christmas gift. Coming from a religious background, newborn babies around that time of year pull at my heartstrings in a special kind of way. This little one was born a few days ahead of schedule (Christmas Day), and actually interrupted the decorating of their Christmas tree! When I got to their home, the top half of the tree had lights, and the bottom half was bare. It was a happy reminder of reality, the chaos, and the re-prioritized joy that a new life brings.
“As I sat there listening to these mothers, I felt really out of place. One of the women had been coming to the group for about a year, and she just kept talking about how horrible her life was, and going on and on. Some women didn’t want to open up, and others really opened up. But to me, it felt like the women there saw themselves as victims and were [myopic and] unable to see a bigger picture. I didn’t feel that there was any instruction or encouragement [on how to get better], and I ended up feeling even worse when I left. I knew I never wanted to do that again. It shook me awake. I [realized that I] saw myself as a strong person, not as a victim, and I needed to redirect my negative energy into something else. That was the permission I needed to start working again on my business, and to really pour myself into that.”
I didn’t want to be someone who was still struggling a year later, and I decided that wasn’t going to happen.
I am beyond glad to announce that this year, the week before Christmas, I will be taking a very limited number of sittings in…
