Senior Photography - Kaiya

Kaiya is a senior that took advantage of a June special I had going on! YES! I do senior pictures. Only on location outdoors or at a place of your choice. I do not use a studio for these. Anyhow, I had a blast going around with her and picking different locations and using someone elses horse! Some stranger let us use Star, a beautiful HUGE-GINORMOUS horse. hahah Enjoy!

I am proud to announce that for every booking you send to me, I will donate a portion of the shoot money to Big Brothers Big Sisters! I am a part of the charity. I have a little sister right now! Her name is Lexi and she is fantastic!
I will be doing a photoshoot with her soon, shot by my niece Haley with my awesome camera~
Anywho. I am sure that this charity is a good one, and it is very helpful to youngsters that need guidance to step in the right direction!
So please... Send me people, send me bookings.

My Meeting....

So I know I have been keeping everybody waiting that does not keep up with me outside the groups. I had my meeting with Kelly and It went, in my eyes, better than expected. I am so excited to get started and cant understand why God will not just put someone on our doorstep to buy both houses. ARG>
Anywho... I figured I would let you guys know we are set to go forward with our surrogate as soon as those houses free up! Thanks!

Ring in 2009 with a bang...

Is this a year for renewal? I dont know, you tell me. So far we have had a pretty good year. I get to meet Kelly, my surrogate on the 31st of January! BIG YAY! I cant wait to meet her. I feel like she has been in my life for years. We get along great and have similar interests. We are both kids at heart and love board games. haha. I will kick your butt in Monopoly! haha... When we meet in person, I am so afraid I will have nothing to say!

We have a meeting tomorrow. Someone might buy my Grandmas house. It is a bittersweet feeling. Getting rid of a house you grew up in. So many memories. Great memories. I almost do not want to let it go. I get so attached. I guess I feel like I am going to forget everything that happened in that house. The late night readings from grandpa to put me to sleep. Grandma fixing her famous grilled cheeses for lunch, her famous chuckroast for dinner. Grandpa always read me "Goofy the Gardner".

"I paid the price of my friends advice and worked the jobs I did not like, but now I am working even harder. To be who I am, Goofy the Gardner." I know it sounds cheesy, but I tear up everytime I think of it.

My grandma & grandpa put so many good days and nights together at that house. Everytime I walk around in it, I get goosebumps, like they are there. Watching over me. I wish I got that feeling at my house. I want her spirit to be with me.

SO>>>I need prayers. We just got a call on the Cincinnati house today also. Could 2009 be our year?????? I hope so...
So far everything is running smooth..

Today is Horrible!

Well. For someone else. There was a woman that gave birth today to a baby without a heartbeat at 14 weeks. I could not imagine this happening! I am in tears as I write this for her. There is nothing worse than going into a patients room to draw blood, with a little sign on their door with teardrops on it. That means they lost their baby. Very rarely do we see this, but it gives me the most gut wrenching feeling EVER> worse than a code, and someone my age passing. I feel like I should jump in and help and talk to her, but I cannot help her situation. I am one little person on the earth, and no matter how much I would try to be positive and strong for her, I realize that I cannot make her day better, I cannot make her forget, and I cannot heal her tears. So people... This is what really sucks about my job. I have to see dying people everyday. I have to see the worst of things. I think I am going back to two days a week. I cant handle this emotional rollercoaster. You know that you are not supposed to develop a bond with the patients, but I do. I find myself way too compassionate about the patients and actually have a forever growing bond with some of them and their families! I find myself pulling my hair wondering if I should have ever gone to their funerals. I know in the end I should not have. I did go to one patients visitation... I received phone calls from his wife every now and again. I was in the hospital room when he died to help his wife get through things. I stayed up there for 3-4 hours. I just want to make people feel better. Thats my goal in life. I think I have acheived it many times. I am just waiting for my turn.


My surrogate "K" and I will probably discuss meeting in person. I absolutely love her and her family. I like to keep private about who she is just incase she does not want to be known as my surrogate. I am in the process of getting scrapbook supplies together for me and possibly her. That way we will each have our own book. This would be her first journey. I cant wait to start. I just finished revising the sample contract and will email it to her shortly to revise and make sure things are to her liking. I want both parties happy and want her to be in my childs life FOREVER>
I think we are a great match so far. I have not felt this good about anyone I talked to yet. I feel like I am rushing a little bit, but that is just my personality. I know it is right. Grandma is my ANGEL, she is looking over me and giving me the right time to start my family. Hopefully that time is NOW>

Thanks for tuning in to my installment.

Sorry also for the little negative story...Just had to get it off my chest.
