Pride is a sin, I know. My great-grandmother reminded me of that all the time. Anytime I get ready to feel the tiniest bit proud of something, I shrink back and say, “No, it’s okay if I don’t say anything.” This year has been ridiculously absurd and strange, like some alternate reality or prequel to … More Successes and Accomplishments Amid the Absurdity of 2020
One of my absolute favorite pastimes is trolling photography credit card scammers. For those of you who don’t know, photographers and other small business owners/vendors get approached by scammers who request an event be photographed. Seems legit until they insist on paying with a credit card AND let you know that you can “do them … More Genevieve’s Gambit
…rolling right into Dumbfounded December. Just like that, I turned around and the month has passed me by… Hello. Been a minute. My regular depression and quarantine depression hooked up with my seasonal depression and it’s been a bit of a spiral. In the spirit of using my sense of humor to mask inner turmoil, … More Neurotic November…
Celebrating the “little victories” in life is something I hear others talk about but have never really done myself. Acknowledging even the tiniest of accomplishments can raise your serotonin levels (and as we well know, I need that in my life). So, I’m going to recognize some of my small wins in what is a … More Little Wins
It’s always fun to decorate for the holidays, and Halloween kitsch is some of our favorite stuff to put out and about. I had a bit of font and Photoshop fun and created some open source freebies for you. You can check them out below and/or download from my Dropbox here: Halloween Freebies! They’re made … More Fun (Free) Halloween Printables
Being “off work” so much has allowed me to focus on creative endeavors outside of portrait work. I’ve taught some courses and am even preparing to launch some tutorials on my YouTube page. Since portraits are straggling here, I’m diversifying. 😉 And of course it’s given me a ton of time to realize that my … More Clearing My Mind (and Office)
Currently, it’s pleasant outside. There’s a light breeze and some cloud cover, but nothing that looks ominous. Nothing that would indicate that two storms are bearing down on the Gulf of Mexico. Marco should make landfall late tonight and Laura at the next day. We will probably get a lot of rain, which is scary … More And now we wait.
There are a few frustrations in my life that gnaw at me. One is the fact that I cannot keep up with blogging consistently. I can write and teach courses on photography. I can create 40 pieces of self-portraiture in 40 days. I can organize exhibits, virtual and in-person. I can even create and compile … More I’m a terrible blogger
Has it been nearly two months since I have written for you here? It has. And I apologize. Actually, I don’t. It’s been busy and weird. Probably for you too. So, I think it’s time I reintroduce myself. I’ll do so in the format of “random questions” (though the questions aren’t really random, but carefully … More Hello, again. It’s me.
