Getting Back to Normal


I took a little time off from the whole photography biz so that I could be with my mother. She became very ill and I felt the need to dedicate my time and energies to her and my dad. She decided that she was much too tired to continue her battle with chronic rheumatoid arthritis and ended her battle on May 14, 2008 after being in so much pain for the past 20+ years. It still hurts even now knowing that she's not around anymore, but I'm okay. I know that I will see her again thanks to the wonderful promises that were given to us in the bible that I very much believe in. She's simply napping and will be awaken soon.

The photo above is one that I know that she would not have minded showing to the world. I know my brother will be really ticked that he's not on here. He'll get over it. lolol Don't you just love the rounded corners of the photo? Thanks to Katie Higginbotham for creating that photoshop action and sharing it with me.

So now, I'm trying to get back on the boat. I'm ready to get back into doing what I loved doing and what my mom was so proud of me for doing. I've made a couple of little changes. Do you like? I think it's kinda funky. Most of you know I'm not normal. lololol I got it from here.

I am once again taking on new clients. I still appreciate your referrals and will continue to accept them as they come. Be on the lookout for a brand new promotion never before given by me. It will be fun. Hopefully, you'll be able to see lots of new faces here (hint hint).

Until then...
Have you had your portrait created today?

Betty!!
OMG!! I haven't been to check out your blog in ages and now I read about your loss. I am truly sorry and wish I could have been there for you. Your mother is in the same place as my dad.
I hope we can continue to be in touch like before.
I miss you.
