To all the photographers I have shot with, have a shoot lined up with, or will ever shoot with... Thank you. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your vision. Perhaps we only got a few great images or perhaps they were all phenominal. Either way we had some laughs, some learning and growth together. We told stories in some of the pictures we took. We captured time. We tried new things and even though some of them didn't work out it did not matter because we had fun. You painted portraits with your creativity behind the lens. You gave me moments I can never forget. You did not see the person in the photo you saw the real me. You made me feel beautiful. You told me my size did not matter because I had a fantastic personality. Some of you took me into your homes and introduced me to your families. Some of you whom are currently to far away offered me a bed and free meals if I ever made it out your way. You are truly generous people. The services you have provided for free have come with one cost you stole my heart forever. I am blessed to have known everyone of you. You have surprised me offered me money when I walked in with no exspectation other then helping you tell a story. Being a part of your story was enough for me. You are my friends. You help me to see all perspectives. You are the artist of life. What a fantastic thing to capture. Thank everyone of you for being all these things to me and for that I am truly grateful.  -Kelsey

This is a beautiful and moving thing to say. What a darling you are. I can only hope that I will one day have the honor of shooting with someone that has such an open and expressive heart.

My corresponding sentiments exactly.

I sense the same feelings towards those who model for me.

It is a shared sensibility, that when it succeeds on any artistic level, brings an equivalent joy to both.

Please, always be the person you are.

Come what may, designs torn asunder or the culmination of your dreams.

Please don’t let it change you, ever.

Sle I am waiting for you. Thank you to everyone who embraced who I am and realizes hearts can go into this process and it does not make it weird. As far as the pregnancy question. I do it for the sake of creating. Sometimes talents are odd but it does not mean they can't be beautiful. I have a child and I am a very maternal person. So maturnity is not something I feel odd dipicting.

I can fold myself up, into what a photographer named the box. I'm not saying anything bad about the OP. I'm just curious how you would pull it of, especially for an implied nude or nude shoot for example.

Don't you have someplace else you could go?

Kelsey never modeled for me, most likely never will. But it just feels good to know she has such appreciation and satisfaction, and such a sense of accomplishment to share. Not just complaining, unreal expectations and a demand for fulfillment without commitment.

Confirms to me that I also must be doing something right as a part of this community. I just haven't had the pleasure yet to have worked with a person who expresses it so well and honestly.

Aww. I think you are awesome. If I ever make it to your area I would love to work with you. And that guy can say whatever he wants he has that freedom. I may have to read it but I don't have to care. smile it is people like those of you who responded with your kindness and hearts that keep me going. For every ugly thing said there are 10 nice things said. If I wake up in the morning then I already have a reason to be grateful for and people who don't they need to sit back a see that some people don't get that luxury. *i can't spell*
