Hey guys!!  So this semester was my first semester studying photography at the University of Central Florida.  I did a series on black men, photographed in the studio.  I basically wanted to do a figure study showcasing fitness and the male body…with black men because I am so damn attracted to black men.  I really came out of my comfort zone because Im used to photographing concerts and then for portraits, girls.  I absolutely loved doing this series.  It was so much fun and actually made me realize that I would love to pursue fitness and sports photography.  When I say sports photography, I don’t mean photographing a game, but shooting portraits of the athletes.  I want to photograph athletes in the studio and on location whether it be the soccer field, basketball court, track field, football field, baseball/softball field and even at the pool for swimmers.  I love working with people and capturing them in my own style.  I can’t wait to continue and expand this body of work over the summer!  I hope you all enjoy the photos and please share or give feedback!!

check it out!!

Tinkerbell on Flickr.Well, today I had to put my little baby to sleep.  This dog wasn’t even a dog to me, she was my best friend.  I found her when I was seven years old at a little farm where she lived with 3 other dogs, who were not nice to her and who were way bigger than she was.  I brought her home and at first she was incredibly shy and kept to herself but eventually she became my best friend.  She was the sweetest little puppy ever.  She knew when I was sad and she always tired to make me feel better.  She was there whenever Id come home from a day of being bullied at school.  She was there when I hated myself, or I thought I was ugly or fat, but she loved me just the way I was.   She never liked sleeping next to anyone in bed but when I had my surgery and was recovering, she slept right next to me and was there every morning when I woke up.  She was sat next to me when I was terrified of my brother because he was flipping out from being addicted to drugs.  She was there the first time I ever really cried over a boy that didnt like me back.  She kept my dad company when my parents separated.  She outlived all of my Grandparents and my aunt.
I always prayed to god that I would never have to decide her fate.  I always prayed that she would go peacefully in her sleep.  I kept holding on to her because I wasnt ready to let her go.  Then, while she was whining from all the pain, I realized how incredibly selfish I was being by keeping her here another minute.  She didnt deserve to suffer.  Today, making the decision, driving her to the vet, saying goodbye, and letting her go, well, i felt like I lost my one true friend.  Like I was saying goodbye to a piece of myself.  I cant even describe the feeling.  It feels like someone is just pushing on my heart with all their weight.  She was with me for sixteen years.
All I know is that I pray to god she is waiting for me when I enter heaven some day.
