What a week... (MASSIVE update)

Wed Apr 2, 2014, 6:30 PM

    First of all, I want to throw a HUGE thank you to everyone's support from the DD (especially SavageFrog and 1pen)!  It's an awesome surprise to come home to! 
It's going to take me some time to respond to everyone, but seriously, thank you. 

    I've been out in the field the past week and unfortunately have to miss out on next week's adventure due to a sprained ankle.  It snowed damn near every day we were out there.  To use the words of my old boss - it was glorious

    Save for uploads, I'm going to be away from the computer for a bit.  Now that spring is here, life is going to be busy at the stable.  If you're into horses and in the Maryland area, we'll be having a small horse training demo and (if I remember correctly) people can come hang out with the beasts near the end of April.  Shedding season means you'll be coming home with your own pony.  ;)

    Speaking of horses, I got invited to photograph for an up-and-coming veteran's recovery program.  Once I can make the stars align to travel to Los Angeles, I'll be documenting their work with the Wounded Warrior Program and their equine-assisted activities.  There's also their first all-female recovery cohort going on in DC that I have the honor to  document.  I cannot wait to see these brave women get a start on their road to recovery!  Having been a female in a combat zone, I know their struggle all too well. 

    Also, if you're in the Sarasota-Bradenton/Tampa area, Manasota Operation Troop Support is displaying some of my combat photos in the Stories of Valor Event on April 12th.  They're selling framed prints (of service member's photography and military-related art) and the profit goes towards them sending some kickass care packages and activities to support service members.

    Aaannddd... I have orders to PCS...down the road again.  I thought it was Top's idea of an early April Fool's joke, but the man wasn't lying - I'll be an instructor of either photo or video (I think we all know which one I prefer ;p) over at the schoolhouse, influencing the minds of new COMCAMs.  I hope I'll be able to encourage at least a few of them to be as passionate about this job as I am.  The military is about to have some crazy kids climbing up things and crawling in the nastiness to get the shot.  Those poor kids don't know what they're getting into.

Yep, you read it right. Female combat photographer/videographer. My job is my life, I'm happiest out in the nastiness with my 'family'.

Other than that, I have no idea what to put here. If you're curious, send me a note!
