CM.13 started out as HappiBird, my initial attempt at blogging, photography and words. The idea came to mind when I was thinking about getting another tattoo… something to remind me that life is good, even when it’s hard. And that it is sometimes. This has all led me to rediscover my inner “artist” (which I say rather tongue-in-cheek).
My grandmother was an artist and sculptor. She was quite a talented, strong, and beautiful lady. Maybe I got a little of this artist bug from her. Her husband, my Grand Dad, gave me my first real camera, an old Canon AE-1 when I was 16. I have hung onto that camera and it is, my grandfather is, the reason I started shooting again a couple years back. I gave myself the chance to fall in-love: photography and I well we make sense.
So my goal now – to let go of the “I should be doings” and get back on that path of “I love what I am doings!” There is so much I love in my life and so much of doing what I must do. That is to change… something big is on the horizon. I can feel it.
What else? I am a Mom with two kids I love more than words convey. I have an amazing family I adore. My two crazy pugs make me feel as fuzzy inside as they look outside. I really like my (day) job – I look forward to going to work each day. How many people can say that? I am happy being the me that is me. What more could a girl want?
CM.13 is my life through pictures and words. My portfolio site is up at http://www.cmthirteen.com. Take a visit. And if you are interested in acquiring a print, let me know. As my photography evolves, this blog will remain and I thank you for reading and looking.
