The Apartment Chronicles

The Apartment Chronicles

I've been in my new place apartment for about a month now and am finally getting completely settled. So, over the next few months I want to start decorating and making it feel more like my home. One of the things that I love most about this place is the balcony. I couldn't use my patio at my last place because there were always wasps or bees flying everywhere so I'm excited that I have one I can actually use now! It's the perfect size for a small set and I've been looking all over the internet for ideas on how to make it cozy. Here's what I love best and will probably do!

Over the weekend I was cleaning up and ran across my portfolio boxes from college. I'd forgotten just how long I hadn't opened them so I decided to check it out and see what I even still had.

About the time my frustration was through the roof with figuring out just how to stitch the spreads from Photoshop together, I'd gotten InDesign so I didn't worry about it anymore. Until about a week ago.

World Photo Day

World Photo Day

In honor of last Friday being World Photo Day and my Good Decision this past weekend I thought I'd share a post with some of my favorite images from the beautiful weddings I've had the opportunity to photograph! I'll be honest, I didn't even know that there such a thing as World Photo Day but I'm glad there is. Seeing all of the posts, articles, and websites that celebrated the day it reminded me that as wedding photographers we can give a gift that keeps on giving from generation to generation.

A Good Decision

A Good Decision

After thinking a lot more after writing my Thinking Out Loud post, I've made a decision. I'm sticking to wedding photography! So many thoughts have run through my head. Everything from my current doubts to my dreams of triumph. The bottom line is this: I have one life to live and I love photographing weddings so why not do it? I really want to build and run my own business and be able to give couples what they deserve for their wedding photography experience.
