Kayla the Swamp Queen has a decree.
If you video/photograph/record/snap/tic toc/what the fuck ever y'all genZ kids doing these days.... if you utilize any of these methods on people just living their lives without consent as a joke for your social media... ya gahbage. Ok maybe not that far but please be aware it's a common form of bullying and harassment. Being racist rude shits? Record them. Yelling at Starbucks employees? Record them. Cops? Shit don't stop recording them. I am NOT saying don't hold people accountable for their shit. However. **
I have been the victim of being used as a joke on the internet for simply existing and it's not fun. Instances I am aware of: walking through Lowes. Eating in public. Waiting in line at grocery store. At the gym on the treadmill. You start to become anxious. Are people taking pictures of me now? Every phone up in a certain position triggers panic. You never get used to it. Even confronting those who do it, you never get the ability to overcome it. **
Just. Don't do it. We are all wacky anxious goofballs in a skin bag. Let us all be skin bags in piece.
This scratchy terrifyingly uncomfortable and I'll fitting dress is something I tried on at goodwill.
Hey guys, I’ve been friends with some of you for years and years now. As many of you know I have been working to becoming a better photographer after each shoot. The support from everyone is amazing. I pay attention to every comment and they replay in my mind when I’m doubting myself. The random messages I get make my day. So unfortunately it’s kinda hard to get taken seriously without a huge following. I don’t wanna go the fake followers route. So this is me extending an olive branch. Or this is me humbly asking for help. If you guys happen to enjoy my work, please keep me in mind when you think of someone that would also do the same. Tag your friends that would look great in front of my camera and or anyone that’s in need of a photographer that’s passionate. No gimmicks, no bs stories. I just want to capture snapshots of beautiful moments. You know that uncontrollable smile she makes when you tell her the corniest joke? That’s what I wanna capture. That look she gave you right after you proposed. Big smile and she’s just staring at you with your arms around her. That’s where I wanna be. Anyways enough with my ramblings. Please think of me when it involves capturing you and your loved ones special moments.
