    Winter Spell

    While I was driving today, I heard Christmas music on the radio and I was truly confused. Then it dawned on me…it’s the first week of December. I just now started working on holiday recipes and I haven’t gotten any presents for my family yet. Definitely need to get it together. … Like I do each month, I’m going to share some photos from November. It’s been bitter cold, so I didn’t take as many as normal. Enjoy! Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you had a good November and I hope you will have an even better December. Camera Gear: Camera | Lens | Phone Advertisements

    Saying Farewell to Autumn

    Bye Bye Fall. It has already started snowing where I live, so I think it is safe to say that my Autumn experience is over. It’s been a good time, but I am excited for winter. I thought I would share some fall photos as my way of saying farewell.     I hope you enjoyed these photos. I’m going to miss these fall sunsets. Tell me in the comments something you will miss about Autumn. I recently invested in a 50 mm lens and I am pleased with it so far. I will post my review soon. Most of these photos were taken with my canon eos rebel sl2. Have a…

    October in Review

    “I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ~ L.M Montgomery | Ann of Green Gables. I had an amazing October! Nothing super special happened, I just enjoyed doing the typical autumnal activities. Going to the pumpkin patch, relaxing, eating pumpkin spice everything – you get the gist. This is my October in review, I hope you enjoy! I hope you like the photos. I didn’t take very many this month because I was busy with school/work and also some personal things. I took these with my phone and also my camera. It’s definitely a moody time of year and that shows! I tried to capture the essence…

    So You Started a Blog…

    Literally everyone and their mom is “building a brand”. Which is great, I love seeing people sharing their passions on social media. But scrolling through blogs and Instagram, I see some things that make me cringe. Not in a bad way, it just brings back memories from my early blogging days. We spend a lot of time putting out content, but we don’t spend time talking about meaningful content and how to go about that. … I am by no means an influencer. This is just my advice that’s based on my experiences with creating content. So you started a blog…what’s next and what should you do? Find your niche.…

    Food Photography in September

    It’s that time again! Welcome to the September edition of my monthly vegan food porn series. I’m starting to get the hang of this food photography thing. Definitely far from a professional level, but you have to start somewhere. I’ve been more consistent with my props and backgrounds and I feel like this has improved my results. I also do minimal edits.  I adjust the color in certain areas and then I slightly adjust the saturation and contrast. Then, I apply a filter that isn’t too dramatic. Some of the more simplistic photos, I took on my phone and it’s just me holding the bowl/plate. I like to have a…

    Autumn’s Beginning

    Standing in the middle of a field on a cloudy and windy day, I realized that summer is over. … I’m not one to typically do the fall aesthetic thing on my blog. but I did do a shoot recently and the photos look like a transition from summer to autumn. If that makes sense. The sunflowers are still out, but the landscape is turning darker. The photos definitely turned out moody. Okay, on to what you came here for. …   … I hope you enjoyed the autumn-ish photos! I have some posts planned, but if you have any ideas let me know. Side note: I have been wanting to…

    Rural Aesthetic

    It’s nearly fall and the sunflowers are just now blooming! I definitely loved sunflowers before it was cool, just saying. Anyway, on to what you actually came here for. I call these photos…”Rural Aesthetic”. I spent more than an hour standing in a field in the middle of nowhere and I think it was worth it. I got my daily dose of vitamin D, I took these pictures, and I was alone in nature (which is one of my favorite things). “Nor rural sights alone, but rural sounds, exhilarate the spirit, and restore the tone of languid nature.” – William Cowper. Thanks for visiting my blog! *Just so you know:…

    August Captures

    August was the month of golden light.  Luckily, I was at the right place at the right time and my photos turned out illuminated. To some of you I might sound arrogant, but I am just explaining my work and taking pride in my passions. I digress… These are just some of the photos I took in August. You might think I titled this “lock and key” to be obscure and deep, but it’s really because I took a cool picture of a lock. Not everything is a hidden message with me. The sunsets this month were one of a kind. I thoroughly enjoyed the month of August (up until…

    Ethereal // iPhone Photography

    ETHEREAL ~ of or relating to the regions beyond earth. Celestial, heavenly, unworldly, and spiritual. I’ve been really inspired by this concept and it has manifested in my photography. I mostly share the photos I have taken with my camera, but I like how some of my recent iPhone photos turned out and they (in my mind) fit the ethereal aesthetic. A little bit ago, I wrote a post about taking quality photos with a smart phone. Well…I somehow accidentally deleted that and it’s not even in my trash folder. So think of this as round 2. Please enjoy my photos and tips! The best camera you can have is…

    I Want to be Great

    We all want to, right? We all want greatness and we all want to be successful. But what happens when you get too caught up in it? Perfectionism in combination with impatience can be debilitating at times. I am usually driven and this is partly because I strive for flawlessness. Not flawlessness in a beauty sense, but I hate mistakes and they easily upset me. On the other hand, focusing on goals and aspirations typically gives me more energy. I enjoy hard work and achieving goals I set. The pros, for the most part, outweigh the cons. What happens when they don’t? At times, it can seem like too much.…
