So, this morning my boyfriend’s bird jumped on top on my cereal bowl this morning and sang me a sing. Is my life a Disney movie yet?

People are often seen through barriers, yet our minds eye fills in the gaps of these barriers without our noticing. This project is meant to not only force viewers to recognize that these barriers exist, but see what information we can gain about people recognizing barriers but also embracing some of them as well.

Dreaming of dancing in the rain.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

I thought this video was a very simple video showing how beautiful women can be with simple confidence. I love photographing beautiful people but what I’ve noticed more than anything is that many times even the most beautiful girls and guys are incredibly insecure on the inside for one reason or another. A lot of these reasons come from unrealistic body expectations. Videos like this give me hope for those people.

After I took this picture a lady walked by an asked if we wanted a picture of the three of us. I just looked at her like …. Uhhh I’m not the mom, I just thought they were cute. #photographerproblems #teacherproblems (at spring grove, illinois)

my life has been so busy I can’t even blog. 

I generally don’t like to take pictures of couples unless I know my photos will last more than a couple years. That’s my secret to taking all the great photographs of couples and my friends. That’s all it really takes. When I meet a couple that really cares for each other, then I trust my self to take better photographs because I want them to be hung on a wall in a few years.
