Teenage Garage Sale

Seeing that It's only been one year since my teenage years ended, this list is pretty much what I'm still into today. I don't think I could part with any of them quite yet but I will probably look back on this in a few years and wish I did a garage sale, for real.

1) My collection of 30 CDs. I don't even have a CD player anymore so these are just collecting dust in my droor... but they have pretty pretty covers.

2) My joker posters.

3) All 7 Harry Potter books as well as the box they were shipped in for the midnight sale of "Deathly Hallows" with a borders poster that says "Midnight July 21, 2007".

4) My Alcatraz poster with 16 of it's inmates. My visit to Alcatraz was the pivotal point in my life that began my fascination with criminal minds, for better or for worse.

5) My Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVDs.

6) My Zoobles toys. They're the most adorable things ever. Don't judge.

7) My collection of 50 perfumes/lotions (mostly from bath and body works). I've recently stopped this obsession but started one with nail polish. Lord help me.

I started photography in 2005 as more of an experiment rather than a dream.  From there, my mediocre portraits blossomed into what I do today. My skills in Photoshop and lighting advanced greatly over the years as did my passion for the art. I have had the privilege to meet wonderful people and witness incredible talent through this experience which has motivated me to continue. I hope to inspire and encourage others who share the same passion and am delighted to be able to share my work with the world.
