12 days later, the recovery process

So it has been exactly 12 days post op. and I’m starting to feel human again. Just as you should feel after surgery, I went through a totally helpless phase, leading into a sort of pathetic looking phase, to the emotional one, then to the ‘getting back on my feet’ stage, following with the (kinda) self dependent phase, to now.

Today mark the day of almost normalcy stage, the kinda part is relating to the fact that I still really kinda can’t do my laundry still. I can’t really shuffle through everything and separate my colors and whites. It’s realistically to hard to do all that with my arms and carry the wight of a full laundry basket. Besides that I got in my car went to the Paper Store to pick up a cute little wintery gift for my nurse that took care of me and dropped it off at the hospital. I made an omelet when I got back and cleaned up a little bit around the house. But let me back up a little bit…… Continue reading

The grass is always greener…

Let’s not pretend that you all haven’t noticed… because a majority of you have and most of you out of that group have even pointed it: I have really big boobs. Yes not what you were thinking. Aside from seeing as a professional photographer for a second, see me as a regular person; a friend of yours. I have finally made a choice to change that card that I have been dealt after a lot of deliberation. I have decided to change my fate labled as a woman with large breasts. There really is so much more to me than that and I am ready to exhibit that to people. I am also more than ready to receive to relief in my back for all of the weight that it has held up for many years now. Thank you, Back, for doing your part. It’s now your turn for a well deserved break.

To catch you up to speed on my reality, as a aged teen i had decided around 18 or 19 that having larger breasts and walking around for the rest of my life that this was something that wasn’t for me. As the saying goes you always want what you can’t have. When you have perfect curls you want pin straight hair. Its just how life goes…. the grass is always greener.

Hey everyone that was catching up on Annette. Just wanted to let you know she isn’t gone but we did go on vaca for a week or so and it was really hard to keep up with the posting, but don’t worry every day was captured…. but some were more boring than others.

Heres the image taken right before leaving for vaca…. and she wore her hair like that for 2 or 3 days (I think) so sorry about the lack of hair styling.

So I really wanted this one to be the “winner” for the day, however it bothers my slightly that its not as crisp as the others because I’m so slightly hanging out of the focal range that I set my camera to be at…yet I still really love this one. I’m calling it day number 14.

These next two were my back up plans, but I wasn’t sure about the top because it kinda fit the couch almost too much…. However they do have quite the classy feel 😉 Screen shot 2013-08-15 at 3.00.57 PM Screen shot 2013-08-15 at 3.01.24 PM   And this image is the perfect reason why its difficult to have your best friend cracking jokes while your trying to be serious !

And this is totally the reason why photographers love the short moments before sunset, the “sucker-lighting” (as my past mentor, Lexi, had put it). AAAAAAHHHHH-mazinggg! Screen shot 2013-08-15 at 2.43.52 PM

Vulnerability is a very powerful emotion. Some people try to avoid it, others let it get the best of them, I usually try to remain in a state of openness. It is a very difficult to let all your protective walls down.

Yesterdays portrait was not explained, yet because I feel like it stands on its own. I challenge you all to continue the rest of the day living openly and staying vulnerable. Being truthful to what you want and need in love is the only way to really get to where you want to be.
