Early Morning Thunder

 It’s something I’ve always dreamed of, being kissed in a warm summer rain. Down in the depths of me I’m a hopeless romantic, I don’t think any amount of pain or hurt can change that. My brain has the power to romanticize any and all situations, which can be quite […]

Washington County Fair

County Fairs sure are different from State Fairs. I like them better. They feel more summery, more comfortable than the big ‘ole State Fair.  Wandering around by myself shooting everything that caught my eye (and the stuff I’m paid to) I felt nostalgic for something that I’d never experienced.

Studio Lighting Class

This term I’m in a studio lighting photography class, and I’m loving it. I already knew a fairly decent amount about lighting going into the class, so most of what I’ve learned is detail focused, but so necessary to get that spot on lighting setup! My favorite assignment so far […]

Present for the Ag fields

Three weeks ago Matt and I went for a little adventure out in our school’s Ag fields. It was a happy, warm, sunny day and I really wanted to go outside and do something, so naturally I headed to the Ag fields. Matt tagged along because who can resist walkin’ […]
