Portrait of my best friend who died. Her name was Jenanne and she died in March of 2016.
The day I discovered that my best friend died. I realized that life is precious. Her passing inspired me to start my portrait studio
I was shocked to hear that she died
the day I discovered that my best friend died
It was Friday night when I got the call that my best friend died. It was 2016 and I just got off work. On my way home I returned the missed call from my best friend, but instead, her mom took the call.
What I heard next changed my life forever: My best friend died in the middle of the night and she barely had time to finish writing a letter. At the time we didn’t know the reason for her passing. She was healthy as far as we knew. We didn’t think she had a reason for suicide but not knowing what happened really scared me. We found out later that she passed from a brain aneurysm. I was shocked. This was the last thing I expected to hear.
I realized that Life is precious
don't wait to tell them you love them
I realized something very important. I realized how precious life is. Jenanne’s frame will always be empty in my home because I didn’t take the time.
You see, I thought she would be here for another 40 or 50 years. I thought she and I would be two old grannies one day, best friends forever. Never did I realize she would die at such a young age of 35.
So now that she is gone, the next thought occurred to me. What if that was me? What if I was the one who died? Is this it? Is this all I will ever accomplish? I knew I need to do more with my life. For the first time, I realized that life is precious.
Her passing inspired me to start my portrait studio
dont wait to live your life
Yes, I was sad. But I also realized that her passing can be a source of inspiration.
After some deep thinking and soul-searching, I realized what I want to do in life. I want to start a portrait studio and use my portrait photography skills to help others.
I help my clients in two ways:
1. I empower and inspire them to live the life of their dreams
2. I give them the freedom to exist in photos

I LOVE YOU
