WINNERS of March monthly contest-CREATIVE LIGHTING
Hey guys,
Unfortunately I have some bad news. Despite having talked everything out with the company who wanted to sponsor the competition, they have not replied to numerous emails since. If they do come through and send me the discount codes I'll make sure they get to the winners but I have a feeling they won't.
I'm sorry to disappoint, I was really looking forward to having something more to offer you but it's unfortunately out of my hands, I hope you understand.
Anyway, here are our lovely winners:
:iconMarieStars:
:iconDavidGrieninger:
:iconBTrerice:
And our runners up:
:iconwillow-yanagi:
:iconducky-overlord:
:iconAleckJo:
Congratulations and sorry it didn't go to plan.

The Prince
The third installment of my Beautiful Anxiety series. This particular crown is my most recent creation. I wanted to make something that could be a little more unisex, while still keeping the flower crown aspect.

This crown came about after a particularly hard day, April 14th. I had been in a sort of funk throughout the day, then I had an anxiety attack in the middle of CVS. Why? Don't know, just happened. The fact that it happened in public compounded the issue. I would rather vomit in public, at least then I could have the excuse of some sort of stomach flu. You can't always explain why you're hyperventilating and tearing up in the middle of CVS. So I came home and zoned out for a bit and this flower crown came about.

Adam ended up being the perfect model for this. I love when a guy has no issue wearing makeup and it helps he's a fan of my work lol.

The Goddess
My second photo in my Beautiful Anxiety series.
It's kind of a funny story as to how I met this particular model. On March 31st a friend of mine posted an article that focused on featuring plus sized cosplayers. While filing through the images I stopped at one in particular, a gorgeous plus sized version of Maleficent. Well, color me surprised, the next day I find out that the image I had stopped at, belonged to a local cosplayer in Phoenix. I sent her a message asking if she would be interested in participating in the project and she gave an enthusiastic yes. Sometimes fate has a funny way of working things out.

Spring Will Come Again
So, I haven't really shared this much, but I have been pretty broken on the inside for the past month and a half. My father passed away unexpectedly on Feb 10, 2017. My dad has always been a pillar of strength for me and I feel so utterly lost without my best friend. I cannot tell you the number of times I've thought, "I can't wait to tell dad about this, I'll call him later," only to come to the crushing realization that I can no longer do that. As a result of his passing, I had not picked up my camera for well over a month until March 18th for a wedding.

I have been making a series of flower crowns as a sort of art therapy. It helps me keep my mind busy and I can create something beautiful. My friend Vanessa came over last night to do some promotional photography for an upcoming show she's putting on. (Those will be posted a little later) She was kind enough to pose for me after we had the promo photos out of the way. I finally feel as if I'm starting to heave myself out of this hole and am getting my groove back. I'm sure there will still be some dark times in my future, but I know that spring will come again.

This photo will also be part of a photographic series called "Beautiful Anxiety"

Model: Vanessa Ferrales
MUA/Photography/Styling: Holly Shoemaker (me)

I have also decided to submit this to the CRPhotography monthly contest.

Gus and Cindy
Photographed a wedding this past weekend. Gus and Cindy are such an amazing couple and I'm so happy that I was able to photograph their wedding. Cindy is a long time fan of my photography, she's also presently going through chemo. They are without a doubt one of the most beautiful couples I have ever had the pleasure of photographing.

Interests
Hey everyone. I haven't really posted a journal in quite some time so I figured I would do so now. In the event you are wondering if I'm still doing pixel art the answer to that would be not really. In my previous journal post I mentioned that my fiancee and I were in a pretty nasty car accident back in June. Since then I have found that I cannot sit for long periods of time which kind of puts a damper on doing pixel art as I am not the type of person who can work on something for 10 minutes then take a break.  I may at some point resume pixel art, but for now it is not in the cards.

Photography has proven to be very therapeutic and editing is something that I can take a break from... mainly because my eyes threaten to pop out of my head if I stare at the screen for too long. I am also going to massage therapy, whether it is actually doing any good I'm not sure, but I seem to feel better for the few days following having it done. Car accidents are an interesting thing. I now get these pin point headaches. I think the medical term is Nummular headaches, it is a coin shaped headache that feels like a bruise. Mine occur on the back of my head where the base of my skull and neck meet. I also tend to get hurt easier... then again that could just be because I'm getting older and have had arthritis for some time now lol. Just yesterday I took Eric's plate so that I could wash it in the sink, turned and barely bumped into the oven. Suddenly I feel this shot of pain in my right hip and since then I have been getting a pins and needles tingling in my lower back, I probably jut pinched a nerve. So ibuprofen and trying to take it easy until Sunday when I have my next massage therapy.

Well now that I have gotten that out of the way on to other things! Eric proposed on Sept 28, we are in the beginning stages of planning our wedding and are both super excited. My sister in law just gave birth to my very first little nephew just over three weeks ago and I was able to travel from Phoenix to Mississippi to take newborn photos which will more than likely be up before the end of the week. Other than that it is just general life stuff. Oh! Is anyone else a fan of Puddles Pity Party??? I'm so super stoked, I will get to see him Jan 5! *flails* Eric and I are actually going to ask what it would take/cost to have him preform at the wedding reception.

Anyways I'm going to scoot off of here for now. Hope everyone is doing well. Stay stellar!
