It is so important to show your family and friends how much you care for them... those people that are their for you day in and day out. They are the ones that should be most important in life. I take a lot of things for granted, but my ability to breathe and walk are definitely not being taken advantage of. I sprained my ankle and strained some ligaments and muscles in my foot in addition to getting burn marks and lacerations up and down my arm, chest and shoulder area. I am one lucky person. I don't know what I did to deserve a second chance but whatever I did, I am thankful I did it.
I think it's kind of cliche to mention what I do throughout this incident I went through, but it is so important to make those memories with your loved ones. And of course having those moments photographed would be ever better! ;) But honestly, whether it be from me or another photographer, please do yourself a favor and make those memories last. You never know when the last time is you will see your family. Even if you are heavy, hate the way you look, your hair color is hideous, etc... whatever the case may be, don't make anymore excuses. The last time my family took family portraits was in April of 2013. It's definitely time for an update. I probably wont ever lose the extra 60lbs I have on my body, so why wait longer?
Hug your family and be grateful for the blessings you have in your life. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to be a part of making memories last for people. I hope I get to do this for years and years to come. <3 font="" nbsp="">3>
For now I am just trying to relax, heal and take each day as it comes. Going through something like that makes your whole perspective on life change.

My bumper that was 30 feet from my car. At this moment, it is still at the corner of Van Buren and Barton Rd. The police didn't pick it up or remove it.
