I love being a photographer.
Nothing else can convey raw emotion the way a photograph can.

Wow, its been quite a busy last two months! I&#8217;ve been working about 30 hours a week as a teaching assistant and tutoring PhotoShop and LightRoom (so if you need help, hey hey!) I got engaged this past month so its been wedding planning central around here! And I&#8217;ve been taking this class called Lighting Studio which is all you guessed it, in studio!

Here is one of the shots I created to help a little bit with the wedding planning. Reception table time :)

Not an image of mine but this is something I think is VERY relevant to photographers and artists! The only person who can hold you back is you.

t-minus: 2 hours!

Two hours until our class presents their “Final 6”. I can’t believe we’re finally here! I am so proud of all of my fellow peers; they are all so incredibly talented! I will have to take some pictures of the show.. 

The Final 6 is a series in which we have complete creative freedom under three guidelines:
1)They have to be photographs…
2)They must include people
3)They must have a concept and continuity

For my series I did the different emotions in dealing with a person in my past that I lost. I will wait to post them online until after the presentations, but I will give you guys the titles as a little sneak peak ;)
1. Wrath
2. Protection
3. Grieve
4. Growth
5. Peace
6. Freedom.  

Here is a different edit of one of the  photos…

Why I do this

I just came across this quote and I have to say that it is one of the saddest things I have ever heard. 

This is why I am doing what I am doing. I want women to be able to see their own beauty. I want women to stop trying to live up to what others think they are supposed to be. I want women to reach deep inside and find that true wildness and beauty and LOVE who they are. That is my mission.

Week 7.. and oh, so close!

Well it is the last week of school before break here at Brooks, things are still a bit crazy, but beginning to settle down. 

Luckily, this weekend I was given the opportunity to relax, shoot, and meet some amazing fellow photographers. My boyfriend Shaun and I were invited to attend one of Joyce Wilson’s workshops as models and photographers. If you haven’t checked out her work recently, you can see it at Joycewilson.com. Joyce’s work serves as one of my biggest inspirations so getting the chance to shoot with her and model for her was such an amazing experience! 

Here is one of my shots with one of the fellow models, Rachel
