Trigger warning: Death
No day is promised. Anything can happen and does. When it happens, the best thing we can do is remember the happy moments.
Over the weekend, one of my new boudoir photographer friends, Jenna died from complications from a car accident. We had connected at the boudoir worksop I attended back in November. She was an amazing boudoir photographer from Minnesota and she was eager to learn more. We spent our last night in Dallas -staying up late and talking about pricing, hopes and dreams for the future, and so much more.
The final day of the workshop, I was really nervous about having pictures taken of me and well taking other attendees pictures. While I did not get any of her, we did spend a few moments together, shooting. She had a vision and I wanted to follow her on that vision.
After receiving my pictures a few weeks ago, I was in love with them. One you can find in the about section of this website. I had planned to put a post together and show her when it was published. I was putting it off.
I wish I had not put off this post until after her death. I wish I had gotten a chance to talk to her again and tell her what I had planned to do with them.
I wish she was still around to chat with me about boudoir and to talk about our goals and fears. I was so excited to see us grow together in our businesses.
I will treasure these images and our conversations. But for now my heart is sad.
Don't put it off. Don't have a pile of regrets at the end.
