Back to the beginning...back to the start...I comeback to the city where I was born and raised to see family and do some photo shoots. My trip this time was definitely only for me, my definition of a mini-vacation. I got probably the best hotel in Racine. Instead of doing any fancy restaurant I went to some of the best small business owned diners. Got some of the best Tacos and Pizza in the United States. I even went to Madison, WI. A place I don't really care to go to! Yea, I had some paid work in terms of shoots which were really fun. I shot with my childhood friend's daughter for her high school senior yearbook photos. I also got some fun creative shoots with the young lady as well.
Her name is Pandora, the makeup artist and hairstylist is April. April is my bestfriend and I got to shoot with her as well while there.
I also got to shoot with Genna Bee, who just moved to Wisconsin from New Jersey. It was awesome seeing her again and she made me breakfast!!
The trip back to Wisconsin gave me some time to relax. I love having a bit of alone time from everyday life. Is it selfish? I don't think so. I still shot, I still planned shoots, but just for a few days I had to no real responsibilities.
As for now I am already working on my next project. Working on 2 books before the end of the year. One is a follow up to my first book, "Stripped Dreams". Also, I will be planning a exhibit showing. More details to follow on this.
Ya stay tuned...I'm going to go to swing from my chandelier now.
