    This Month in Food Photography: July

    It’s that time again! Time for me to share my food photos, because I’m that person. I used to eat food, but now I just take pictures of it. Just joking, I still eat my food (30 minutes later). People seem to enjoy these posts, so I am continuing this series! Since I’ve settled into my new place I have kept a fairly consistent layout/background, in the past I was all over the place. It’s definitely not perfect, but I am liking how my photos turn out most of the time.   Here are all my food photos from July! I typically do a darker background and minimal props. I…

    The Best So Far…

    “It won’t get much better than this”. It’s great to those moments that stop you in your tracks. You fall silent because you don’t want to ruin perfection. You start to realize that life is full of growth and change, hardships and good days, and everything in between. “We all tend to see our bodies as ‘frozen sculptures’ – A sold, fixed, material object – when in reality our bodies are more like rivers, constantly changing, flowing patterns of intelligence.” ~ Dr. Neal Houston. This doesn’t necessarily mean our physical bodies. We are not stagnant in life even when we feel stuck. I guess what I mean by all of…

    This Month in Food Photography: June (V)

    Who doesn’t love food porn? Part of my blog (most of my blog) is about sharing the vegan lifestyle. A lot of this includes food, but I realized I haven’t shared my recent food photos. I moved to a new place, so I am still figuring out the lighting situation. Also, I have been figuring out backgrounds that I like. These are not perfect, but I am pleased with them and hopefully you are too. Pin This ⇓♥ If you want the recipes, you can check out my instagram or you can comment or email. As you can probably tell, I prefer breakfast photos. This is because there are typically more…

    FOREST

    So…I was going to write a poem about forests because I was really inspired by the photos I took. But I am no poet and I wouldn’t do “the forest” justice. I guess you should just use your imagination as you enjoy these photos.     I shot these photos in the woods where I used to run cross country. If you are curious, it’s in Missouri. Being back there brought back so many positive memories. I truly felt connected to nature in these moments. It had just rained the night before so everything was lush. Most of these photos are pretty basic looking, but they hold more sentimental value…

    Summer Goals

    My semester is officially over and I am looking forward to my summer break. On the rare occasion that I have free time, I like to write down my intentions or goals at that moment. Here is what I wrote down for my “summer goals”: Have fun! This is an obvious one, but I often need to remind myself to not take things so seriously. Take day trips. I don’t have any trips planned, but I would still like to go on smaller trips or spontaneous road trips. Post once a day on my vegan Instagram account. I typically post every two days, but it’s becoming more serious now so I am…

    The End // APRIL

    “Nothing lasts forever. Forever is a lie. All we have is what’s between hello and goodbye.” ~ U k n o w n. This quote is how my April went. It was fleeting, but oh so great! Every time a new month starts, I like to review the previous month. If you read my blog regularly, then you know I post all my photos from each month. Here we go again. Enjoy my photos from the month of April. NATURE…. It is just now starting to look like spring where I live. As you can probably tell, most things were still “dead”. It was a harsh winter and it’s pretty…

    AUTOPILOT

    When you just can’t deal… I gave up my control. I’ve let life just happen. I’ve sat back and allowed co-pilots to steer me. This sounds great, right? Just sitting back and relaxing. Let me tell you, it hasn’t been great. For the past few weeks, I have done the minimum. I go to school, I go to work, I sleep, I eat, and I repeat this process every day. I’m doing the minimum, but I still feel like there’s not enough time in the day. There was a time when I wanted to do everything. And I basically did ‘do everything’. I over programmed myself. I became so involved…

    Food Photography: March Compilation

    You could say that one of my hobbies is food photography. I guess that makes me a hipster. Anyway, I am constantly learning about what makes a good “food photo”. On my blog–I typically share vegan, lifestyle, or nature related posts. But, I rarely share about the topic of food photography. I thought I would share recent food photos and some advice I’ve learned. For those of you that are interested, here are my food photos from last month: As you can see, there is still room for improvement. However, I have learned a good amount about the subject. Lighting is always important in photography, but even more so in…

    March Captures

    “It was one of those March days when he sun shines hot and the wind blown cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” ~ Great Expectations. March was fine, but now it is April AKA my birth month! This is part 2 of my March Captures. Look at Part 1 Here. I’m just going to jump right in. Here are my photos from the month of March. You might notice that there isn’t very much color, that is because nothing has bloomed yet where I live. Sorry if you like vibrancy. I hope you enjoy these photos. Tell me about your March in the…

    February Captures

    “In winter, you feel the bone structure of the landscape.” ~ Andrew Wyeth. I’m back again with another monthly round up of my pictures. I don’t have as many nature photos because February was brutally cold. All of these were taken in Kansas, in case you were wondering. NATURE… I really focused on detail in the month of February. I wanted to capture small moments that sparked something in me. My other love. FOOD… You might have seen some of these pictures in my previous post. I clearly was obsessed with breakfast food in February. I hope you all enjoyed the photos! Thanks for visiting my blog. February wasn’t the…
