Sometimes the weather does not permit you to comfortably photograph outside.
Sometimes you find yourself snowed-in at a photography studio. 
Sometimes your model has a hard time staying focused.

I've been quiet.

I have been busy. I have been hurting. I have been healing.

I have been living.

Sometimes life takes you where you never want to go, but you must let it take you there. 2012 started like any typical year and ended in a flurry of undesirable events. As summer shifted into fall and fall turned into winter, I found myself wishing time would speed up and launch me into the new year. Love was not good to me and death knocked on my door, but I survived.

I have cauterized 2012 and my enthusiasm for something new has taken hold.

Although I am glad to say goodbye to the past twelve months, a constant beauty was always present in music. Here are a few of my favorite songs from 2012:

I am a little late with my birthday post . . . my birthday was over a week ago but I felt wrong not posting something about growing up. I'll keep it short and sweet, here is to being one year older.

There is nothing better than the happiness that spring brings along with its budding leaves, green grass, and blossoms. All I want to do is spend time outside and soak up the warmth and color!

Also, I just discovered this amazing band! Their album has been on repeat for the last week. Enjoy!

Crossing my Fingers

Sometimes a girl just needs to be photographed for no particular reason . . . here's to hoping I win a free photoshoot from a wonderful local photographer!

I got a dangerous Christmas gift this year . . . a remote trigger for my camera. For those of you that may not understand what a remote trigger indicates . . . well . . . I now don't need to wait for a model to try out my photography ideas because I can take a photo from in front of the camera! I can be my own model!

I will try not to post an overwhelming amount of self-portraits but I can't make any promises. :)

I am so haunted by the pure love and sadness contained in one little song about a bee.

"Spider and Gioma"

And what have you all to give if you need to kill to live

She knew there was only one place she could go

She left her new city never to see it again

Saying something about how only a queen can kill a queen

In her old city she knelt

And the new queen asked her how her people felt

I will lay my people down

I will lay my people down

I will lay my people down

I will lay my people down...
