Sorry I've been absent so much the last several months. I'm currently working to catch up on returning comments, critiques, etc, so I want to say a huge thanks to everyone for being so patient.
At the end of August 2012, I broke out in shingles (on my face of all places!) during a modeling trip to LA. I had to cancel all of my scheduled shoots and book an emergency flight home. The recovery was very slow, and I was unable to do any modeling while my face was healing. I was discouraged at how slowly it was healing, and rather depressed that I had to give up modeling for what felt like forever. I tried to stay off of DA and Model Mayhem to focus on other things since I couldn't model anyway.
At the beginning of December, my face was finally healed to a point where I could model again, so I took a trip to Maryland to shoot with some of my favorite photographers. I felt rusty and out of shape, but the trip was an overall success, and I'm finally starting to feel like I'm getting back on track. I have several shoots planned for the next month, so I should hopefully be posting more images soon!
Thank you all for the kind words, and support. It means so much to me!
