me & my ladder*

me & my ladder at a photo gig, taken by boho boy

i needed a ladder,
to look down at my subjects.
that angle is so flattering and whimsical.
like angels are looking down on my beauties,
and i capture this connection.

i didn't want a medal ladder.
a typical home store one.
i wanted something unique.
so i imagined it and waited for it to come.

my husband moved to a new school.
he found a ladder in the art room garbage.
it was petite...just like me.
it was splashed with paint.
someone painted "step ladder", on the steps.
my husband phoned me;
"I have a surprise for you."

he brought it home,
my face lit up.
my ladder found me.
i wished it into being.
now i take it with me everywhere,
to look down on my beauties,
and capture what the angels see.

she said i had six angels,
watching over me.
one of them brought this ladder to me.

"and capture what the angels see", that line gave me the chills.

That one line is the perfect descrition of your work. You should put that on every single marketing piece that you do! You have a way with beauty - with seeing it in all things and somehow, remarkably, catching it on film. If you are simply catching what the angels see while standing on your little ladder, then you must be an angel as well. - Tanaya

Who knew one was a ladder angel? More than likely an angel of manifestation.

Loving you.
