Welcome, welcome! As many of you know, I have been doing photography for almost two years now and they have been the best two years of my life! I have met so many wonderful people and (sometimes) smiling children. It warms my heart to know that my photos have changed so many lives.
For quite a long time, I've considered starting a blog but never really committed to it until now. But why now? (We'll get into that later.) If you haven't read 'my story' under About Me, I encourage you to stop what you're doing, go read it and come back.
I'll wait. Click here.
Now that you have a better understanding of who I am... I'll get straight to the Why and the Why Now. My 'why' is simple. While every photographer's 'why' is typically to share their passion with their readers, mine is a little more complex. Of course, sharing my work with you is a guarantee, I feel that I have a story to tell. A story that others can relate to and see that you are not alone! And why now, you ask? 2020 was ROUGH and I mean, ROUGH AS HELL!!! (There will be cussing in this blog, it's just who I am, unapologetically.) So, I have decided that 2021 is going to be The Year, Our Year, My Year! I have begun to work on myself, emotionally and mentally, and if I can change just one individual's outlook on life, young, old, black, white, skinny, 'morbidly obese,' I have done my part in society to make this shithole a better place!
What will you read about? You will read about love after divorce, you'll read about the struggle to lose weight, you'll read about a child's reaction to a parent's addiction, you'll read about a mother's love, women's empowerment and so, so much more. This blog will be about so much more than my passion for photography, it will be about me, living unapologetically, in a world that isn't very forgiving.
As you read along to the posts, I encourage you to comment with your thoughts, your feelings, whether or not you can relate. I encourage you to ask questions, let me know what you'd like to read about next time. Through this blog, you will truly learn about the woman behind the camera and I hope that this blog will comfort you and show that you are not alone.
Signed, Unapologetically, D.
