Went to Washington Courthouse to shoot in an abandoned State Children's Home.
Walking through the house and seeing all the craftsmanship that was still in tact 100 years later was impressive.. Knowing why the house was there made me question the innocent lives that passed through those doors.
Sometimes I think we take for granted when someone really loves us or cares enough for our well being to take care of us; when they could have made other choices.
Thanks to Ron and Rachel for coming to play..

My friend DJ was shooting Kori Danielle today and I snuck over and snapped these with my little point and shoot camera..
She is such a lovely person.. Has a great laugh and a really inviting disposition.. She looks like one of those romance novel women.. Like the wind should be blowing wherever she is.. I almost expected her to have a horse nearby..
I am glad that I got the chance to meet her.. and make her laugh..
If I was half as talented as she is at her age, I would have probably been completly full of myself.. but she isnt.. She is funny and smart and creative and not afraid to take a dare..
She is an amazing photographer and a self portrait model.. I decided to take her out of her comfort zone and hopefully provide an experience that would shed some light where she may not have looked before..
We spent the day shooting and talking shop and she tried really hard not to get grossed out by fish heads and chicken feet.. I hope the experience was worth the nausea for her..

My Grandmother was and IS always a driving force in my life.. She would tell me that I was ALWAYS enough, just being me.. I didn't need to prove anything to anyone else or live up to anyone else's idea of what or who I should be.. I just had to be happy with me and be accountable for my decisions.
Part of what many perceive as arrogance, is my Grandmother coming through in me.. Giving me the strength and resolve to be ME and stand firm in that.. No "best foot forward" nonsense but standing firm on both feet.
I am sure Lilian Mims is watching me, and proud of the legacy she has left behind..
