(First off, to accompany this post and to commemorate my 38th birthday, I took some self portraits at the studio while trying out some new lighting techniques, to practice and learn.  Why?  Because I’m a photographer and this is a photography blog.  At first I thought, well this is weird, I guess I could have…

You still have a couple of years, but I can tell you that your 40s will be amazing. There is this wonderful freedom being 40 brings. You are doing great things that will have an even greater impact. : )

For my Day 14 post (btw, I am skipping Day 13 because 13 is unlucky and that means I won’t be behind, yay!), I want to talk about quotes.  I can sit and read inspiring quotes for hours and they will flip my whole mood around.   They can change my perspective on a situation or…
