My Heart Is Free

Photo/edit: me

Sadly I get my inspiration at night so my table lamp is my light source. I used a Nikon D7000 which I had to return. I was beginning to like it, but I guess my Canon will do 😛 I have been using Tumblr so I forgot about this blog. I did make another one on Blogger so feel free to follow me there too.


Holding Onto Miss Sanity

I wonder when I will actually break?

You avoid me and I want to listen…

I’ve had a tough couple weeks and I’m not sure if it will be better. I had a job, but had to lose it. My patience is wearing thin. I try so hard and it seems to never be enough. I’m exhausted! I tried not to care anymore and it somewhat helps. Then sometimes it just comes flooding back…

I feel angry, hurt, insane, and emotions that I cannot describe. When can I have a vacation?

I need a shoulder to cry on and I don’t trust anyone to do that with. The one person I do trust avoids me…

My love,

I am confused and all I ask is for you to tell me what’s wrong. I will feel better knowing I was there. You say I never listen when I do. You just don’t understand me like I don’t understand you. I am still learning who I really am. I found fears I never knew I had. I remember things I thought was forgotten. Did we lose each other for good? You say it’s not me it’s you. I don’t believe you.  We both changed and I want you back. You blame things that is not meant to be blamed. You take your anger out on those you love.

I’m a fighter and I will stay strong. No matter how far I keep falling I still get back up. I won’t let stupid shit stop what we had. I know you are not weak. You can stay strong too. I am here to help you through the tough times. Let me listen to you…

Cirque De Soleil Makeup Challenge…

Posted in Photography, Self Portraits on February 6, 2011 by faythrose

Here is my Cirque De Soleil theme suggested by my friend Heather.

Cirque De Soleil


Poisoned Kisses

These are inspired by the Dralion Océane which is the sensual goddess of water: Dralion

Dralion is a harmonious blend of Eastern and Western acrobatic prowess.

They came to St. Louis back in January and I didn’t have the pleasure of seeing it. I hope to see them next time though 🙂

I have more images dedicated to this theme on my DeviantART if you would like to check them out:

Makeup Challenge

I’ve asked all of you to give me a theme to work on for my makeup portraits.

Here is Erek Vaehne suggestion as me being the Evil Queen.

Queen Evil

Hail Before Me

You Evil Queen

Hair/Makeup/Photo/Edit: all done by me 🙂

Took about 2 hours to get hair and makeup done. It was my first real attempt to do my hair. It took alot of hairspray 😉 And my hair is with red roots and the rest black. I had my sister dye my hair and she thought this hairdye for dark hair would turn my black red, but instead gave me red roots and a red tint to my black. I started liking it 🙂

May I Be Deadly



Come Away With Me


Posted in As of late..., Photography, Self Portraits on October 4, 2010 by faythrose

Life seems to have its ups and downs. Mine has always been crazy…

I was taking photos for a series I decided to do for myself called Emotion.


Must Be Empty

My past has been harsh. I’ve endured so much and I surprise myself at how I have not given up.


At this point of my life I feel it is the best…

My daughter loves taking pictures. She decided to jump in with my photo session and take over the remote. She’s not bad for a beginner 😛


It’s not a perfect portrait, but I love it 🙂 Next time we’ll have to get her dad in it 😛 He was busy doing other tasks.

Life gets better through time so don’t give up…
