{{.Crazy Traffic Accident.}}

Today is turning into a crazier day than I ever imagined it would be.. Driving home from the bank, Jillie & I almost ended up in a bad accident. Headed down rt9 towards worc from westborough, right at the 135 entrance, a tractor trailer decided not to stop at the stop sign. The dump truck that was only 1 car ahead of me stopped, and so did I (and the people behind me). The dump truck did NOT have enough time to stop, and instead of hitting the tractor trailer truck, he slammed on the brakes and cut the wheel, so he hit the jersey barrier instead of the other truck. THANKFULLY, everyone was ok, just shaken. The dump truck smashed the barrier, but no other cars were involved and no injuries. I stayed and so did the guy in front of me. We made sure that the officer taking statements knew it wasn’t the dump truck drivers fault and that he was ok before we left. It was scary though.

I think the other guy who stayed with the driver & I until the police arrived said it best.. “It could have been so much worse, the [dump truck] driver saved lives.”

Thank you, dump truck driver, for your amazing driving skills. I’m so glad you’re alright!!!

{{.Hula Hoop Changing Room & Reading Tent.}}

As an on location photographer, I need a little changing area that I can also fit into my car, and manage myself. I took 2 hula hoops, I cut the hula hoops, and slipped a hula hoop through each seam. Then, I cut the edge seams and used them to tie the coat hangers to the hula hoop in an “x”. My nephews LOVED playing in it.

{{.Little changes that made a BIG difference.}}

Dear clients and friends,

As time had gone on, I’ve changed how things are done at True Life Photography of MA.. I’ve gone from “Lucky Photos”, to “Photography by Jessica White” (there are several), and in June 2012, I created True Life Pics. I was really excited. This was the end of my journey and I was a professional, and I was ready. Little did I know how wrong I was.

I’m begining another chapter. I just spent the first half of this year working out all the kinks. I’ve slowly been building up to this point. I’ve printed new business cards, and reconstructed my pricelist and business module. I’m ready. Really this time. Please allow me to introduce you to ‘True Life Photography of MA’.

Now, I stand here before you, telling you flat out that there is still so much left to do in my journey. I’m still learning. Every day I read tutorials, and I practice, and I read and practice more. It’s a process. It’s never over. I’m ok with that. I actually love learning new things, so every trick I learn, I find new joy in. Every new chapter is not forgetting the old chapter, but enjoying the knowledge from the old chapter, with the promise of a new adventure tomorrow.

With the new name, comes a few changes. First, non VIP client galleries will be available for 2 years, and will be deleted after that. Second, my pricing has changed. I’m sorry that I could no longer give the “getting my portfolio set up” fees that I have been, and I hope you’ll all understand the price changes.

Love, Jess
