It gets me sometimes

I am the invisible woman.
Blink, and you'll miss me completely.
That reunion? I was there.
Birthday party? Yes, there too.
Lazy day outside at the park? Uh huh, there.
But I stopped sticking my finger in front of my lens a long time ago.
Maybe I should start adding it to the composition.
A fingerprint to say "Rachelle was here."
I am the invisible woman.
It gets me sometimes.
Especially when I know that someday I wont be here.
And it'll be like I never was.

A debt of gratitude to Mom for snatching up my camera today and giving me myself.

Determined, concentrated faces.

Twirling a bit too much.

Bliss, a portrait.
