I am happy to announce that the entire "Creatures" section is finito!
Now all I have left to do is the other 5 sections in the "Personal Projects" photography section. Still a lot to do. But I've got 1 down! And that's progress. That's what counts!!
I really want to get it all down so I can focus on other projects. I just want to be done with it. I have an obsession with finishing things. Like, can we please!? PLEASE. LET'S FINISH THIS. Like Home Depot. Let's do this! So yes, I'm still chipping away at that.
I want to make a music video. I'm starving for it!! But I have other things that need my attention right now. Hopefully after the first of the year, I'll be able too. I'll keep you posted on that if and when that happens.
I've also added a new "section" to the home page that features "personal stats" about myself. Basically letting first time visitors know what I've done thus far. In both my photography and videography. I quite like how it looks. The stats are low right now, but in time, I'm hoping they go up. Hey, gotta start somewhere right?
In other news, I am going to look at a car Monday morning. (11/13) It's a white, Jeep Liberty. The Jeep is located in Montgomery, Alabama. Which is about an hour and a half from here.
And in short, if I like it, we are leaving with it. Which means, I get to drive it back home. All. the. way. home. Which is nerve racking for me, but also very exciting. It will give me a good hour and a half to bond with my very first car! And learn the new vehicle.
Having my own car is a HUGE deal. It's a very necessary and vital step that needs to happen before my business really takes off. It's not just convenient for me in my day to day life, It's also a great benefit to my business. I can take props with me for photoshoots. Let people ride with me, if they need it. And the biggest thing is I'll be able to travel as I need. Instead of borrowing my mom's car and leaving her stranded somewhere. I'll be able to hop in and drive to a location where I'm filming or photographing at, and not be wondering "how is my mom getting home?"
I think having my own car will give me the convenience I've been wanting. Some peace of mind I've been lacking. And the confidence in knowing that I'll be able to move forward with my business, and not be hindered because of transportation issues.
So all in all, I'm very excited for what's to come.
In the meantime, I have 3 photoshoots coming up. And 2 (as of right now) coming up in December. So some new pictures will be coming at you real soon.
Thanks for checking in!
Come back again.

So, a lot has happened since I last updated this blog.
We did move into a new house. And I did get my internet back. I've been working as much as I can on the site. Trying to get all my content that's on the old site, on to this one. Including some new content that wasn't added to the old one.
I just finished the "personal pets" page and the "miscellaneous" page.
I have "wildlife" left to do, and I'll be done with the entire "creatures" section.
I still have the other sections to code for my personal projects photography section. I'm hoping it goes by faster than it has been while coding the "personal pets" page. It seemed to have taken forever. And I still have 2 pages to add content too in the "photography for clientele" section.
I'm just taking it all, one page at a time. (Sounds like what the title of this entry should be.)
I also FINALLY created a playlist for people to listen too while they browse the site.
So you can now click on that on the front page and check that out. If you want.
In the meantime, I've been booking people for photoshoots which makes me incredibly happy.
It makes me feel like I'm a little bit closer to living my dreams. And don't get me wrong. I feel like I am. I'm just not living it to the fullest capacity that I'd like too. But baby steps. Baby steps. Every little session or piece of work I get to make for someone, takes me a little bit closer to my goals. It makes me feel like I'm heading in the right direction. And I'm doing all I can.
Other than that, I'm busy with my 2nd job. And trying to learn how to balance my time between these 2 jobs. I'm also in the process of trying to get my first car! Super excited about that. But also really needing it. I hope something works out soon. It's getting difficult having to share a car and work around other people's schedules.
If there's anything else worth mentioning, as always, it will be posted here.
Thanks for checking in!
I have just finished uploading all the pictures to the "Insects" page. It's the first page in the "Creatures" section that is done!! It feels so good to get back to making some progress.
Also, we will be moving out in the next few days!!!!! I'm SO EXCITED!!!!!
And I hope unlimited access to internet is just around the corner.
Thanks for reading.
Work on the photography section is now under way!!
I have created a lot of the pages. And I'm currently in the process of updating some of the pages with content. I'll do my best to get that finished as soon as possible.
I'm only working in the "personal projects" section right now, because it's already all organized and ready to go. I hope to get it done very soon.
That's all for now.

Quick update: I have officially finished uploading all the graphics to the "Clientele" section.
So you can now see all the various graphics I've made for my clients.
In other news,... we will be moving into our new house in 2 weeks!!!
I am completely and utterly excited and happy. Soon after, we will have internet. And hopefully progress will begin to move forward and we can get back up to speed.
As far as my part time job goes, it's doing good.
Hoping to start spending the money on things for my business.
Well, that's all.
Thanks for reading!
Have a great week.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel!!!! I SEE IT!!!!
So, first off THANK YOU to all the visitors who have visited my site this week. LOTS of page views. I was pleasantly surprised. Thank you so much beautiful people. I'll do my best to give you cool stuff to look at when you come here.
Moving on now, we are under contract for a house. It's in our desired location. And the seller is actually someone we know. So we're super confident about this purchase. And we're very excited that next month we'll have our own house again.
Which means for me, INTERNET!!!!! Which means for you, NEW CONTENT to look at.
I'll be able to get back to regularly updating this site. I'm terribly excited!!
The closing date is my Dad's birthday, September 5th. After that, we'll get settled in, get the internet hooked up and it's full steam ahead.
I'm so excited and happy and I wanted to share it all with you.
In the mean time, I'm starting a part time job. I start Monday. This will give me some money to put towards my business. I'm super excited for that as well.
If I have any new details to share with you, believe me, I will.
Thank you for visiting the site.
Quick updated. I finally had the chance to add some more of my graphics to the "Clientele" section. It was just the "events" page. But it's better than nothing. I'll try my best to add more soon.
Thanks for checking in.
I am SO pleased to announce that a NEW music video has been added in "Personal Projects". So if you wanna head over there and watch my music video "Kanye" then please do!! And if you already have, then thank you!
The last music video I had made was "Into the Blue". It was something I thought of and envisioned for several months. And when I finally began to execute my plans, the music video took 6 months to make. That's preparation, filming and editing. And 6 months later, boom. Music Video. It was so satisfying when it was finally finished.
But here I am, a year and a half later, and I have not made ANY new music videos. I was beginning to get antsy. So it's Memorial Day weekend, and I made plans to spend the night with my brother. I told him that I was going to film us doing different things and that I was going to turn it into a music video. Just so I could make one. Unscripted. Not much thought went behind it. I just knew I wanted to use the song "Kanye". So this was literally just me documenting our time together, throwing it together with music, adding some effects, and viola!
We would be walking down the street and I would see a wall or a loading dock and say "hey, let's film here. Let's do this. Look at me. Be still." It was a lot of fun. We were constantly laughing. And I hope our fun time shows in the video.
I also made another video called "Kanye - Behind the music". Kind of like a behind the scenes video. But it's behind the music. What the music video would be like if there was no music. So it's literally about what's "behind the music". I'll try to post that soon.
I plan to make a third video, that's kind of like a music video. But it's going to show all the footage I took of us driving down the road. I'm going to use music of some sort. (Not Kanye. Because I want this to be a stand alone video) But I plan to make that and share it soon.
I also updated the logo for my videos. Instead of saying "Ladymusicc Productions", it says "Video Created By Ladymusicc." Then says underneath "Ladymusicc.com". I threw in a cool moving background. You'll see it at the end of the "Kanye" video and future videos.
In the mean time, I'm going to:
I am about to start a new part time job. This will allow me to make some money for my business. I'd like to buy another camera. Mine is older and has it's hiccups. If I were to photograph a wedding, that would be unacceptable. So I really need some new equipment. And I'd like some filters and effects for future videos that I make.
I'm excited for the opportunity to make money that I can put into my business. I hate that I'm losing time to work on projects. But we don't have internet anyways. And honestly, I don't know when we will. Work on my website is like traffic in Atlanta at 5:30. It goes and stops. I do a little work here and there. But for the most part, progress is at a stand still. So this is really the perfect time to have a job. I will continue to work on projects after work. And I will update the site as much as possible. But in the meantime, I'm going to work. Which sounds so weird for me. I haven't had a job in almost 10 years. So it's exciting. But terrifying.
I will post here when I have something new to say.
That is all for now. Thank you so much for reading.
"...'Cause I love how it feels when I'm breaking chains..."
Great song by Imagine Dragons. "Whatever It Takes".
I'm at that point right now. I'll do whatever it takes to get my site done. To get my business going. To catch up on my projects. I need to hustle more. I've got a lot to do.
I have recently made a new music video. (just for fun) Completely unscripted. But I love how it turned out. I'm planning on posting it this weekend.
In the meantime, I've got pictures to organize, edit and upload.
Work is crawling at this point. Like I said, I just have to work harder. Time to hustle.
I want to get some momentum going again. I feel like I'll never get my business off the ground. And I don't like that feeling. I want to know it's going to happen. I'm going to get it off the ground. Have a launch date. Something!!! Time to hustle. That's all I know.
We're still at the temporary house. Still having to come to church to use the internet. But I at least wanted to post something. Things are happening. You just can't see it.
Thanks for reading.
Check back for more updates.
Listening to Lorde - "Green Light" off her new album "Melodrama". You seriously need to look it up and have a listen. It's been my anthem this year.
SO! HUGE setback.
We have moved into a temporary home, so we can look for a permanent home. Our buyers wanted to get in quick. So we had no choice but to get out quick. And the new house we're staying at, does not have internet. This is good and bad.
It's bad because, obviously, I can't work every day on my site like I have been doing.
But it's good because it forces me to work on other projects. Like editing pictures and making videos. Which is MUCH NEEDED.
So, that's where I'm at right now. I plan to come every Saturday to my church to use their internet to update my clients website, my website and my 365 challenge blog.
In the meantime, I will:
It's a major setback. But I've been in this kind of situation before. Where I didn't have internet and I had to just work on what I could. And let me tell ya, it was a very productive time for me.
So I'm dreading the next few months, but at the same time, I'm not. It's very strange. But it's where I'm at right now.
As always, if I do something new to the site, I will post about it here.
That's all for now.
Thank you for reading,
And thanks for visiting my site.
