Portraits {Ken}


“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! 
That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas;
 this new book is newly opened, has just begun!
 Look, it is the first page! 
And it is a beautiful one!”

I love reconnecting with friends who live far away. Ken is one of my friends who I got to know online before we actually met in person. We hit it off right away, perhaps because we think alike about so many things. Although she spends most of the year in Oman because of her work, her vacations are filled with reunions and catching up with her friends. We've been talking about doing a portrait shoot and this vacation was the perfect time to do it, although with the few hours we had, I felt like another shoot is really a must! (LOL!) Despite the almost hurried way we did this shoot it was a great way to reconnect and catch. Plus, I got to see some of the beautiful pieces of Mideastern jewelry and dresses that she was selling. 


We have always talked about dreams and passions and following your own path in life. Ken is surely on her way. Although she works as a nurse, she finds time to pursue her other passions, like fashion and staying fit, which in my opinion, is such a great way to live a life. You are not your work or your profession or your hobby. We are so much more than that. Part of living a full life is enjoying life after work, having other things that fulfill you and make your heart full aside from making a living. Friends like her remind me of that, especially when we finally get together and have these conversations.
