I kind of took it easy this summer, but in September, I finally started getting back in the swing of things.Read More
Glenwood Springs holds a special place in my heart, but sadly, I haven't had the chance to make it up for a visit in a long time. It's only about three hours away, but between work and a million other things, it just didn't happen. Thankfully, I have some awesome friends and boyfriend who humored me and took a weekend off this summer to come adventure!Read More
My mom and I drove to South Dakota for the weekend last month and it was gorgeous! Neither of us had ever been to Mount Rushmore and she really wanted to go, so it was a lot of fun. We didn't really know anything about any of the places around there, but found a bunch of cool spots and pretty drives. I'd love to go back in the spring or later in the fall and adventure some more, but until then, here are my favorites from this trip.
I never get up to the mountains as much as I would like to, so this trip was super special for me. My friend and fellow photographer, Svetlana and I have been dying to get up in the mountains as well, and even though we didn't have a plan or a destination, I'm still really happy with some of these photos!
I hopefully plan on making it up to the mountains at least once a month if not more this year, so plan on seeing much more photos like these in the future!
When my friend Dillon asked me to do photos for his new project, I was both excited and anxious. I wanted to do something outside in the grass, but I didn't really know how to go about doing this shoot without making it look like every other boring promo shoot for a singer-songwriter. I wanted it to be simple and pretty, but also unique and eye-catching, and that's where the prism came in.
I had read about using a prism for cool photo effects before (see this article for tips and tricks, it's really useful) and I've been dying to get the chance to do it ever since, and this shoot seemed like the perfect opportunity. Honestly, I really love how all of these photos turned out. Usually I walk away from a shoot with maybe one or two pictures that I really love, but I was really happy with just about every single one of these photos and I'm super excited to be able to use this technique again.
We took most of these photos off of a hiking trail just outside of Boulder. It had been raining all day and thankfully decided to stop for us for a little bit. The overcast clouds made for the perfect lighting and looked really cool over The Flatirons on the way back to the car, so I had to snap a couple of quick photos.
