Today my dear friend @amandapearl sent me a post on IG. It's a pic of one of my favorite model/badasses @uglyworldwide
Go follow them both.
Anyway, it's a shot of her for a new campaign and tattooed on her pinky is the word "weirdo." My gf said she needed this tattoo, STAT.
YAS! I think we ALL need this.
The other day, I opened up about what has been going on with my middle muse child. She is on the Autism Spectrum, to what degree we do not know but it's been a struggle. This is putting it mildly. She is super high functioning but has a hard time expressing herself or using verbal words when she becomes overwhelmed.
Enter the mother with the camera who sees things differently than most.
Kennedy loves my camera and she loves to be photographed. She lets me take about 10 "clicks" and then I have to stop. Sometimes it's less, sometimes it's more. But I always remain respectful of her. I practice my work on my children every single day. Today she is home with croup, but she asked to be transformed into a "unicorn" so I did my best. I am no MUA, but I do my best with what I have.
This is my mantra. This is her mantra.

Cheers to the weirdos and those who see the world differently. We can hang.
