photography ~ I’d kill for some company


Self-portrait 11/52

“If you have never lost your sanity, then you have never been in love.”


My week 11 of 52 self portrait.  I decided to partake in this weeks ‘Self Portrait Sunday’ event with ‘The Art of Self Portraiture’ community over on G+, the theme is ‘Love’.


This photo is lyrically inspired by the song ‘In Boxes by Aurora’, I’ve been wanting to do a photo to this song for a few years now. If you haven’t heard it, give it a listen, it’s a bit twisted… I like twisted. 😉

Some of the lyrics:

“Here I am still lonely with the souvenirs
I would kill for some company
I did once have a lover only kept his hands
They can dance and play the songs for me
Play until I sleep”


What’s this image have to do with love?  Well… I’m a fan of hands and the way they can make you feel. I’ve often told my husband that when he dies, or when I kill him… I’m keeping his hands. The man has magic fingers, but even aside from the many sexual pleasures they provide, they offer a sense of intimacy that I’ll never tire of, a closeness that even in silence can be felt with something as simple as putting his hand in mine. Sigh… (let me have my girl moment here).  Hand holding is where it’s at!  So much so that when I had my friend with benefits (when I was single),  hand holding was on my list of no-no’s.  It’s just too….intimate and caring, don’t care about me, just do me! Hee… I clearly have issues!


This….right here:

“Have you ever really held the hand of someone you love? Not just in passing, a loose link between you – but truly clasped, with the pulses of your wrists beating together and your fingers mapping the knuckles and nails like a cartographer learning a country by heart?”
― Jodi Picoult


On a lighter note, his hands belong to me, I’m keeping them…forever!



Like always, all of my images can be seen bigger on Flickr.  If you follow me on Instagram, I’ll be posting the SOOC (straight out of camera) version there, flaws and all.

Q & A… Sort of

I didn’t expect the video to be so long when I started talking.   Next time I’ll be sure to tackle one question at a time, keeping it short and simple.   Feel free to turn this into a drinking game, every time I swear or say “um” you should take a swig of something, you’ll be toasted by the end. I’ll try to be mindful of that next time too. I’m learning as I go.

Self-portrait 10/52


I’ve had this song, ‘Oh Ms. Believer, by Twenty One Pilots’ stuck in my head for the past week. I kind of love it and have been overplaying the fuck out of it.  Felt like I needed an image to go with it.


Happy to say I’ve made it 10 weeks into this self-portrait challenge and haven’t wanted to quit yet, that’s saying a lot. Only 42 more weeks to go!   Damn, that sounds overwhelming when I say it out loud.  I’ll just stop saying it out loud I guess.  Week 10, done!

“Health is not valued till sickness comes.” – Thomas Fuller


Here is my week 9 photo, a fair representation of how I felt earlier this week.  I’m dying, start planning my funeral!  I might be a bit over dramatic sometimes, just a little.   My kids were also sick, they handled it way better than I did.  I’m happy to say that everyone is back to 100%, and last night was a really good night in comparison to the rest of the week. Onward!

photography ~ ‘Airhead’


Self-portrait 8/52


“Sometimes I use big words I don’t fully understand in an effort to make myself seem more photosynthesis”


I don’t really consider myself an airhead,  but today when I Googled “how to spell airhead?” I questioned my own judgement. To be clear though, I really just wanted to confirm that it was one word, not two. It’s one. Unless you are getting a blow job on an airplane, then it’s “air head”, like “road head” in a car. The more you fucking know.

Happy Valentine’s Day


“The thrill of the chase moves in mysterious ways….” Self-Portrait


Hello there…


I must admit, I woke up in a fantastic mood! Feeling a bit frisky today, more so than normal. Can’t say it’s because it’s Valentine’s day though, because… well… so what? It’s just another day, and as much as I love being in love, and in lust, and having loads of sex…. today doesn’t provide any more of those things than a typical day would. Although I’d totally be on board with tons of extra sex today. Just throwing that out there in case my husband reads this. *come home early*


I don’t really think that I’m the romantic type, don’t get me wrong… I wouldn’t turn down a nice quiet night filled with dinner and flowers, but if it doesn’t end in sex I’m probably going to be disappointed. Yes, I’ve been told often that I’m like a guy when it comes to sex, but just because I tell you to get out and grab the money off the dresser when you’re done doing me, doesn’t mean I don’t love you. I’m kidding, I don’t pay… just get out.


Told you, I’m in a fun mood today, in the spirit of Valentine’s day, I’m probably going to send as many distracting text/sext messages to the hubby today, because sending nudes and dirty messages is just part of what keeps marriages alive. I highly recommend you try it, just make sure you’re sending them to the right person… trust me on this one… double check because the last thing your mom wants to see is a photo of your junk, so I’ve been told. Sorry mom.


What about you all, any big plans today? Did you even know it was Valentine’s day, do you care?


If you are struggling with what to say to that special man in your life, I find that this works:


And remember…





Like usual…. All of my photography can be seen bigger on Flickr, you know… in case you need to see me life size.  We both know Photoshop is my friend, so I try to keep the flaws to a minimum over there, but here’s a before and after, because… I’m not flawless in real life.

‘Comic Book’ – Self Portrait 6/52


At the beginning of the year I had asked some of my followers to help out by lending me some photography themes and ideas to use for my 52 week photo project.  I received some good stuff filled with inspiration. One of the words given to me was “Comic Book”, so I decided to roll with it.  If I’m being completely honest though…. this was not the photo I had planned for the week. What I wanted to do didn’t work out and required more set up than I had time for, out of sheer laziness of not wanting to carry my light and camera back downstairs ( I know! LAZY!) I decided to shoot something in this hallway instead. But you know what? I kind of love it!  It also reminded me to keep it simple stupid, this was quick and easy to do, just like I like it!

and…since I’m being honest, I have a confession to make: I don’t like comic books…or Graphic Novels. There, I said it!  Don’t get me wrong, the artwork is pretty cool, but I just can’t pick one up and read it, I have zero interest or desire.

As I was typing that out I was thinking “I’ve never read a comic book in my life”, but then I remembered that when I was younger I would look through ‘Heavy Metal’ comic books (still, never read them),  they were inappropriate and had nudey pics in them, there was also the movie, ‘Heavy Metal’, based on the comics, I remember watching that more times than I probably should have.  Maybe I just need to find more comic books with sex?  But then again… porn is just so much easier. Yeah… I’ll stick with porn. 😀

My list of Must-do’s when taking a sexy photo.


‘Ricochet’ Self-Portrait

One of the many things I love about photography, self-portraits in particular, is that you can tell any story you want about yourself.  It’s as simple as a costume change, makeup, pose, hair, etc.  Me? I thoroughly enjoy getting all dolled up and letting my sexy side show.  I thought about just posting the above photograph and leaving it at that, because… damn… I look fucking good. Right? I’m so modest. lol

But I don’t always look like this, it takes work to look sexy in an image.

I thought I’d share some of my ‘must do’s’, ways I like to convey sex appeal in my self-portraits:


Step 1: Finger in the mouth. People love fingers in the mouth, and anything that draws attention to the lips.


Step 2: Sexy eyes. Eye contact is important!


Step 3: Push tits together…because, well…who doesn’t like cleavage? It’s like saying, “Look! Another place to put your dick.”

If you’ve learned anything, I hope it’s that you realized—the sexiest thing you can do is just be your damn self. Even if you look like an idiot most of the time, like I usually do. Trying to keep it real. Enjoy!

What’s the Frequency?


Benzedrine ~ Self-Portrait

Like most of you know, I’ve been avoiding as much news and online garbage since November.  Well… recently I’ve been reminded as to why.  I caught myself trying to decipher a few news stories that conflicted with each other.  After reading pages upon pages, trying to figure out the actual facts, I started to go a bit crazy.  What happened to true journalism? I’d love to just get the story and decide for myself how I feel about it, without everyone trying to shove their own views onto me.  I get it, William Tager, I fucking get it!

“Show me your kitties!”

I love my kitties! Not many people have seen my kitties, although many have asked to.  Believe it or not, I keep my kitties inside more often than not.  They are very pretty kitties though, just the right size, soft, not too firm, the kind that feel really, really good when they rub up against you. I would know, because I’m always touching my kitties, always! But they are mine, so I can….and I do!

I understand that some people want to see as many kitties as possible. I’m kind of with you there, I too, am fascinated with kitties. Just know, you’ve already seen about as much of my kitties as you will ever see. However, because I’m the type of person that cares about you, and knows that you have needs, I’m going to share something with you….. there is this thing called ‘Google’, maybe you’ve heard of it? You can look at kitties all day long if you learn how to use it. Big ones, small ones, some the size of your head! For real, go try it!

If you are a kitty fan like me, here’s a little kitty ditty you’ll probably enjoy.  Whether you like country music or not, the lyrics alone are worth listening to.
