My Addiction…

An idea, a spark…
Something that will make people really look…
My mind visualizes the outcome, long before we begin…
The planning, the searching, then the right person walks in…

Talking to them, presenting my ideas…
Hoping that my words can paint the same picture inside their mind…
The excitement and anticipation if they agree…
More planning to do, I can’t fall asleep…

Do I have everything, or can I make do?
Nothing else matters, oh yeah, I must eat…
Batteries are charged, camera is cleaned…
The props are ready, backdrops are steamed…

Heater is plugged in, the studio is toasty…
Wardrobe & Makeup, the SESSION BEGINS!!!
The lighting… The poses…
Talking… Laughing… Having fun…

The planning paid off, everything worked out…
New ideas now come about…
Time stands still, more poses, more shooting…
More having fun…

I’m now at the computer, post processing begins…
Cropping, editing, taking it all in…
I still can’t sleep, so I press on…
Shoulders ache, but I’m still not done…

Exporting and uploading…
Now a new anticipation begins…
Will people love them or hate them…
These photos are like my own kids…

An emotional high comes crashing down…
I’m exhausted and fall asleep on the couch…
I awake and feel empty, the project is done…
But my addiction is strong…
I must do this again…
