Just a quick shout out to all the mommies and soon to be mommies out there!
I just happened to remember that I still had this blog. I’m pretty sure I haven’t blogged in MONTHS. Between my day job and my tiny photography business I am a little preoccupied. I’m trying to prioritize the important things in my life.Time is of the essence and it can not be wasted on stupid shit. So I have been working my fingers to the bone and tryng to stay focused on my goals. I will admit my ADD sometimes will get in the way but I do my best with it. I have these huge ideas in my head that I hope to one day see pan out.
I can’t spend a lot time on this blog but I will post a few photos to show you what I have been doing. You can also check out my website as well.
Well I know it’s been awhile since I made a post. A lot fo things have happened and life has just been busy wit a dash of unexpected surprises. But all is good and I just wanted to post a few shots of some of my recent work. The heat is killing me already and it’s barely June! This summer is going to be sick hot and I am not looking forward to it. I’m house sitting for five days so I’m taking the time to catch up on some things. This blog being one of them

Boudoir Photography is my favorite. It’s the one that I can basically just let loose and be me when I shoot. I can push that fine line as much as I want. Challenge my self and my client. Create an intimate moment that will last you and your loved one a lifetime. If all goes well then one day boudoir will be all I shoot. It’s a Goal I plan on meeting face to face. Heres my email if your interested in a shoot. JessicaMartinezDuh@gmail.com
I started a 365 project on 01.01.11 and so far I have kept up with it pretty well. I’m trying to take the photos that day, instead of using old photos. I think that’s really the challenge to me. Not actually posting a photo a day because I already was doing that. They just were not part of a project. So this year I challenged myself to do it this way and not CHEAT. I already wanted to cheat twice and I’m only 22 days into the project
I follow other people on Flickr who are doing 365 projects. That’s what got me to do mine this year. Flickr is addicting it’s worse than chocolate. Well almost worse but the point is Flickr is an awesome site for photography lovers. If that’s you then you might wanna check it out if you haven’t yet. But if you slightly cool then you probably already did! I’m going to bring you up to date on my 365 because I’m pretty proud of some of these images. Who knows you may just love them. alright here goes it. Ok so somehow my boudoir sample pics and pics of Clarisa are in the slideshow too….BOO! But I don’t have time to fix it so first you will see my Boudoir pics which is like 6 of them. Then pics of Clarisa and then my 365 photos after her. Blah the slideshow WAS a good idea when I thought of it lol
So that is my 365 up until yesterday. I haven’t taken my photo for today just yet. I have been cleaning my room and editing photos all morning. This year I promised my self I would be more organized this year in every aspect of my life. I have to be or my damn future is doomed to hell. All my big plans for this year are starting to take shape slowly but surely. Come March I will be starting on my personal projects as planned. Just need a few more things go as far as equipment. I have so many ideas and not enough damn time to do them. But you know what it’s time to forget about time and just get it done.
NExt weekend a friend and I are going to San Antonio for The Art Slam. My friend Alan will have some of his work in it. I can’t wait to actually meet him in person. The one good thing about Flickr is the people you meet. I’m ready to get away from here. I’m ready to not think about fort worth for a whole 48 hours. I can’t breathe right here lately. A mini vacation will do the trick. Hopefully.
I left some photos of my daughter for last. She has grown up soooooo much it’s just insane. She is my perfect model and she secretly loves it. Being in front of a camera that is. I have been pointing one at her for at least two years now. When I find new locations to use she is my model to test at the locations. So here are a few of her and a new spot I was told about by a friend.
I have tons more photos there just enough time to post them all. hopefully soon I will be getting my website for my photography business. It’s been two years I think it’s time to step it up and throw myself out there. But for now I must nap. Tonight should be fun. After my cousins jewelry party I’m going to The Comicpalooza in Dallas. Can we say awesome fun? YUP!
See this smile it’s real. I kid you not!
I’m in love with the fact that my life is just what it is. I’m in love more at this moment more than I ever been before in my whole entire life. The fact that people I encounter show me more and more ways to fall in love with them. For so long I didn’t see that from people. It was like an Unloving Ugly Era of crap. I’m glad to see that era is finally over because I was getting tired of seeing its pretty ugly little face. When you see so much of the ugly in people you tend to accidentally block out the beautiful parts about them if there are any. People tend to keep layering that wall with bricks until it’s so impossible to climb. I’m one of those people. I was one of those people. I think I had to go through that to see how much I was missing by doing it. I lived and I learned. I understand it all and accept it’s entirety. I guess you could say it’s all a part of growing as an individual. So many people go on the search for their meaning in life. So many people travel far and wide in search of what was right in front of their face this entire time. The search is on and it’s never-ending. So why have you stopped? What happened to you?
Love is a tricky SOB. If you give too much then you’re a sucka. If you give to little then your cold as ice. Everyone wants that physical love. What happened to that mental love? The Love Mentality when being told I Love You was simply enough. In an ideal life it would be 50\50 or something close. The happy balance between all that. If you have never experienced Love then I must say you are missing out. I know what love is and I know the beautiful damage it can do. Scars from the past. That beauty makes me who I’m suppose to be. There are no wounds because they no longer hurt. They no longer cause me pain or grief. My ninja band-aids held it together best 6 bucks I ever spent. If you have experienced love then you know exactly what I’m talking about. Probably in other words of some sort.
I think my hearts on defrost. It’s strange I will admit. After a few years of an arctic blast this warmth doesn’t feel so bad.
I’m in Love with the simple complexity of everything that is life.
Here’s a few things I’m in Love with now
I just had to show this shot of todays sunset. I promise to blog more this month. Work is work and getting out late is no bueno. So to start this weekend off right I will post my shot that I took today for my 365v project. I started on 01.01.11. So far so good but it’s only been a week! Hope everyones week was awesome and may your weekend be uber fantastic
Today has been an okay Monday, surprisingly. There are a lot of useless reason why today was the opposite of awesome. Mondays are my DAY OFF…typically at least. When the holidays creep their head out all my Mondays OFF disappear. Usually we are off the last two weeks of the year. Obviously that didn’t happen this year. I just love waking up at the ass crack of dawn..SIKE! Although the 4.5 hour surgery we performed today went really smoothly I still would have rather been at home in my pj’s editing photos lookin’ a complete hot mess. To top off it being a Monday off I also forgot every single one of my CDs in my room last night. I drove to work minus the music. It was horrible. On my way home I said to hell with it and turned the whack ass radio on expecting to be disappointed I wasn’t. Once the commercial was done Pardon Me by Incubus came on.
Now here’s a little Jessica101…….I love Inucbus. You just have no IDEA. When you go through certain things in your life certain music you lean to for comfort. The times when you feel the need to escape from the world. All those times when it felt like the whole damn world is against you. The days when you were singleded out for being you and not like them. Being ridiculed for thinking outside of the box. All those times where other humans made you feel 3 inches tall. That time when you almost gave in. When you almost gave up.
Music is where I run.
Incubus is where I hide.
Today was just shy of AMAZING. I couldn’t have asked for a better Monday and it’s not even over yet.
