• week 14 | pennsylvania

    let's be real. at this point, i'm only numbering the blog posts for chronological purposes. this is not the 14th week of the year. the summer has gotten away from me. i can make lots of excuses. i have been swamped with work and life and it's hot and i haven't been shooting as much. i don't know how this is going to look going forward, but i still want to keep shooting (obviously) and posting, so you'll just have to bear with me.

    these images were taken during a family trip to pennsylvania during the beginning of the summer. photographing around my family will always be one of my favorite things to do. i realize more and more how inspired i am by stories and how deep my desire is to have my photographs tell a story and be apart of a greater story. these towns are full of history and stories; family history and the new memories i am creating while walking through and seeing them with my own eyes. 

  • week 13...sort of.

    well, if you've been keeping up i am very, very behind. life hasn't gotten the best of me the past few weeks and i've been shooting less and not posting at all. 

    nevertheless, i've returned! here are some shots from the past few weeks. so things i see with my phone and same with camera. enjoy, and thanks for continuing to follow along on my irregularly scheduled posts!

  • week 10 | plant portraits, victories etc

    i think i'm finally caught up. and i think i might've skipped a week in the process. sorry? oh well, i'm making the rules here i guess.

    today was a good day. i am learning to count victories (and celebrate them!!), focus on what i can control, and create healthy boundries in the pursuit of being and becoming myself. 

    my dad helped me plant some things. i love my new plants. it's so exciting to watch them grow and realize i haven't killed them yet! my basil plant in my favorite because i planted it in a large can that had tomatoes in it that i used to make homemade sauce for the first time. my dad drilled some holes in it and it's turned out amazingly! looking to my left out my window into my backyard i can see my basil has already grown exponentially. time to make some more pizzas and pasta sauce, i suppose!

    it's still spring and creation is singin'
