1. I GRADUATED!! I got my associates’ degree in business management. I worked my butt off in school while also working 30-40 hours a week at Starbucks and now I have a degree. I DID THE THING and I’ll probably go back to school in a couple of years and go for something totally different, but for now I’m putting formal education on the back burner and doing some hands on real life experimental shit :p
2. This year I became a business owner!! In March my friend Allen and I registered as an LLC (limited liability company) in Washington State as photographers. We’re primarily wedding and portrait photographers and it’s our first entrepreneurial endeavor. After going to school for business management I’m really excited to be able to put my education to use while working for myself and doing photography!
3. In the past year I’ve become more financially independent, like paying for my cell phone bill and my car insurance payments each month(something my parents used to cover for me) and I am also able to pay rent on time in full each month with little to no problem so YAY TO THAT!!!!!
banana popsicles: 1 memory I have of you
OUR PHOTOSHOOT!! from my favorite coordinate link, I want to do more shoots with you darling Audra~
“I think it would be nice to be able to wear extravagant hats, and gloves, and all these extravagant clothes and not be on the street and not be mocked for it or questioned why. … If you wear a fantastic hat during the day in the street people say ‘where are you going? why are you dressed like that?’ and it’s maybe the most annoying question in the world. Why do we have to have a reason to dress up or to be glamorous or to have fun? Why do we have to have a reason for it? I hate it when people ask me why. Why not?”—Dita Von Teese (via albinwonderland)
I noticed I’ve gotten some new followers because of some photography I’ve done of shibari/rope bondage, I wanted to put it out there that this is my personal blog and won’t post a lot of BDSM or otherwise NSFW content on this blog. However, I do have a side blog and if anyone is interested in the URL just message me!
