He Looks How I Feel


We’re home from being gone four weeks and finally settling back into the regular hum of life. I suppose I could pretend the laundry was done and put away, or, heck, even pretend I’VE UNPACKED MY BAG, but why front? My biggest accomplishment in the past two days was putting on yoga pants and getting the mail…baby steps, Internet, baby steps.

Polo and I have mostly taken refuge under a blanket, talking only when necessary. And by necessary I mean turning to my suitcase and asking, Why haven’t you unpacked yourself?!?

Today we’re going to LA to see the premiere of Hunger Games…and if I go in something nicer than yoga pants, I’m going to high-five myself.

    You deserve to lay low and chill for at least a week! I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s thankful to have met you- you totally rocked it out. PS: I’m seeing Hunger Games Sunday to feel like a teenager all over again Stoked.

    Four weeks is a long time. I couldn’t imagine the life on the road like that. Wedding season is kicking off so I know there is more travel to come. Looking forward to seeing a season of great pictures.

    ME. TOO! I have been waking up super early due to the time difference and all, but yesterday it was a whole lot of Jersey Shore catching up and trying to remember where everything is in this house. Feels strange being home, doesn’t it? I bet Polo Bear is happy!!!

    My Christmas decorations still haven’t taken themselves down…..I hope your suitcase doesn’t follow their example!! However if it does I have found that finding a nice corner to put it in keeps it quiet for a few days/months. Welcome home!!! :O)

    You’ve been working your butt off, so you deserve to live in yoga pants for {long} a while! 🙂

    Crawl back under those blankies, Jasmine, and just breathe … doctors orders. (uh – actually i’m not a doctor but know what it feels like to be that exhausted). Cozy blanket, squishy pillow, and fuzzy socks = Aaaahhhhhhh …

    You may feel spent, exhausted, and light-headed, but the way you made thousands of photographers feel is worth it, I hope. I think I speak for many of us when I say, "Thank you" for your words, your advice, and your inspiration. I’m honored to have met you.

    Sorry this is off the mood here. I had a question. I noticed that Polo is like smooth satin white and usually merges with the background light? do you ever face challenge to seperate him from the background and avoid merging him. I sometimes face similar problem when photographing my pet cat and He is super white on his face and abdomen and has super black back and shooting him b/w because whichever i shoot (over or underexpose) it merges with the background some or the other way .

    Thank you so much for doing this!! The night was truly amazing!! I can’t beging to tell you how The FIX has chaged my way of thinking not only in my business but also my life. There are so many times during the week that I go back to points you made. I must be rubbing off on my family -the other day my daughter said- "what would Jasmine do?" -LOL. Just wanted to say thank you for all the hours and hard work you, JD and Polo put into this and know that you have touched so many people in such a positive way. xo
