Michelle and Gabe // Chapel Dulcinea

Something that I haven’t shared… I got hand surgery yesterday. Well, it was my left middle finger, but my whole hand hurts so it might as well been hand surgery. LOL anyway, it happened a couple weeks ago and I’ve been struggling to find ways to cope with the evolution of the injury. I spent a week in a cast that was sooooo depressing. I couldn’t handle anything with my left hand LOL I struggle to dress myself, I couldn’t even tie my shoes and putting a sleeve on my very hot coffee cup from Panera? Yeah, I needed a strangers help for that one. But, I got the surgery yesterday and after spending eight hours at the hospital, I have some new temporary pieces of metal in my hand. I think this makes me one step closer to being bionic, so watch out. Don’t make me angry or something like that 😉

This year has thrown some curveballs, that’s for sure. I’m still maintaining optimism and gratitude though. I even just mapped out my planned young adult novel that I really want to do this year. I wanted it to be polyamory based, as an education for the reader who may be into poly or interested in the topic. Is been hard, with the car accident I was in in December and now with a hand out of commission… But I’m determined to do the things I want to do in life. I keep remind myself that some people have it harder and have done more. That’s not the healthiest way of viewing things, but it sure is helpful in getting me out of my funk sometimes.

Speaking of gratitude, I got these amazing clients Michelle and Gabe, who were just so happy! They live in Denver, so I had not met them before their wedding day. I’m excited to go to Denver this July for a wedding, and do their engagement session then. Or rather, a day after session or whatever they want 🙂 I have a lot of clients from Denver recently, so I’m actually considering expanding there this year. I was just there for baptism with a longtime client, and kind of took a gander around. It’s a great location, even if parking and drivers are insane.

Anyway, Michelle and Gabe had this amazing wedding at Chapel Dulcinea. it was definitely a challenge, since their ceremony was at nighttime. The chapel is not known for its ambient light at night, which makes it very difficult for a lot of photographers. I enjoyed the challenge though, as usual. And these two were so laid-back and easy-going, it was a pleasure.

So here’s hoping for an eventful summer, although by eventful I mean full of work, awesome clients, and writing. No more injuries, please Universe.
