Those in my day to day life are well aware of the awesome change I recently underwent. I didn’t think to reference any of it here because it’s sort of personal in nature as well as completely unrelated to my photography.
But then I found a loophole in my logic:
✩ ✩ ✩
a. It’s relevant to everyday celebrations, the philosophy.
b. It’s relevant to potential clients being confused about who the heck just showed up at their door.

It’s summer and it’s hot. Not only is it summer and hot, but I tired of my long locks some time ago. All that hair was usually tied in a messy bun, hidden under a hat, or the source of frustration in my Get Ready and Go Out the Door in 5 Minutes methodology.
Last week, I finally got around to addressing the heat-producing, frustration-brewing mane with a scissor-wielding accomplice and got myself a little trim.
I donated 17” of hair to Locks of Love, a wonderful nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from any diagnosis that results in permanent hair loss.
The organization strives to bring a little bit of normalcy into the lives of kids who get teased and embarrassed by their loss of hair.

I’m pretty thrilled with the resulting cut and the instant air conditioning. I enjoy not considering my hair for longer than a minute a day, so I can dedicate my attention and time to things that matter, like perfecting my bubble solution, and, of course, taking your picture.
