today i have finished the last of the month's photo shoots. this relief is dampened slightly by the fact that there's still loads to do for the auction and for the exhibit on saturday! so i am feeling more than a little frazzled, and i know i'm not being as patient or good to myself (or people around me) as i should be. and sure proof that you get what you need, when you need it... this song just came on my radio: "i am not a robot" by marina & the diamonds.

you've been hanging with the unloved kids, who you never really liked and you never trusted, but you are so magnetic, you pick up all the pins, never committing to anything you don't pick up the phone when it ring, ring, rings, don't be so pathetic,

just open up and sing i'm vulnerable, i'm vulnerable I am not a robot

so! in the spirit of taking myself less seriously, i will now take a deep breath and share these model shots i took of thihi. i photographed her friend faith last year, and hopefully i'll be able to do a shoot with both of them sometime this spring. i took these on one of the nicer days a few weeks ago. she's beautiful and very nice, and has an envy-worthy wardrobe.

and now i will take a justly deserved break from editing on the computer. i do it every day at work, and when i make work outside of work, it is a bad bad situation. time to catch up on my reading, cooking, and film photography! thanks for reading (if you are), and please don't forget to check out our Help Haiti Benefit Auction! Exhibit on Saturday, auction open till March 9.
