Truth: I am really attached to my hair. I don’t mean just literally, that much is obvious, but it’s who I am. My hair is such a big part of my personal identity – it’s how I feel… me. Photo by: Kimberly Reid Photography

I can’t believe I never posted these, but it must have been fate as tomorrow is this beautiful lady’s birthday and I can think of no better way to celebrate her than showering her with compliments in this post. I have nothing but infinite fabulous things to say about her, so let’s begin.

    Gorgeous! What a super sweet birthday message!ReplyCancel

Last month I saw an awesome post about how Sue Bryce got her very first camera returned to her as a gift from the woman who had bought it. This post sent me on a mental hunt to find out what had happened to my own first camera. Of course, during this journey down memory lane…

    This is awesome! My first camera is right next door, in the hands of an amazing 16 year old with a natural eye for composition. Loved this 🙂ReplyCancel

      Allison, that’s a truly beautiful story! I love how you’ve passed on your camera… and likely supported the next generation of photographers!ReplyCancel

  • BethMarch 16, 2016 - 11:20 am

    This is great! My first camera I “bought” myself from saving up stamps in the little booklet at the grocery store…I was 9…it was hot pink plastic and surprisingly lasted me through high school. It’s somewhere on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico after a night out on our Senior trip. Those images are probably best left unseen 😉ReplyCancel

      Love this! I love hearing where first cameras came from… especially from my fellow photographers!ReplyCancel

  • RebeccaMarch 16, 2016 - 3:43 pm

    Oh this is such a sweet blog post! Loved reading it and learning about your journey. I swear, photography must be in the blood! Funny how we creatives follow similar paths (even if we don’t know it!)ReplyCancel

    Neat! What a great post! My first film camera, my parents gave me/ My first digital was a $99 kodak. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Mary Beth MillerMarch 31, 2016 - 4:57 pm

    That’s so awesome! Would love to see the winning photo! My very 1st film slr (canon ae-1) which was given to me by my dad (who died 16 yrs ago) recently made its way back to me! I gave it to my teenaged niece like 15 years ago! My 1st dslr was gifted to a girl in Sweden!ReplyCancel

There are only two times I can remember Pogo ever needing me. She was the most independent creature I ever knew, and looking back now, I can see just how alike we were. They say that dogs resemble their owners, and while Pogo and I didn’t share any physical characteristics, emotionally we were almost one in the same….
