Putting Down Roots

verna-12

I am so grateful to be living in Tampa. Putting down roots here with Jason has been rewarding in so many ways. Having both our families here, friends, making connections with work. All good things. If you stay in one place long enough and try to do right by people, you reap what you sow.  […]

Practice and making perfect

So Joe and Lauren got married: We were joking about how it was the social event of the season, but it really was. I got to come in for the assist with Lauren’s wedding photog and friend Janie from Life Writing Photography and shoot some details from the reception. I kept my camera on snooze […]

Happy to be working

I wanted to write here today because I needed to, it had been a few weeks, I’ve had some work, and I wanted to write my thoughts about that. I was prepared to write about the zone system, how tough certain shots were at the wedding I assisted on recently (bright sun on the groom’s […]

This image has absolutely nothing to do with my current work, and that’s because my current work has mostly involved taking very classy and lovely photos […]

  Here are some of my favorites from Thanksgiving yesterday. Of course I wish that all of my family could get together more often, but the fact that we can count on each other on important days like Thanksgiving proves how thankful we are for each other without having to really say it. I’m always […]

Thanksgiving prep!

baking-3

About six months ago we requested today off because we knew we’d be doing some baking, and I decided to use today’s goods for some photo ops. Last year, I was still working for Starbucks and didn’t get home from work until almost midnight. Somehow we managed to churn out 3 pumpkin cheesecakes (recipe here) […]

At about 1 a.m. this morning my boyfriend says that he thinks my morning shift got picked up for today. I checked it immediately to find out that this was true, and it was basically like Christmas came early. I know it’s just a Wednesday, and I know there wasn’t anything special happening, but I […]
