Back in that humid OHIO sun! Excited to be home with my family for the week to rest, eat good food, and see my people. What’s your favorite thing about going home? Mine is evening walks with my dad, my moms garden fresh food, and cook outs with friends.
Yeahhhh that California sunshine☀️ #cali #oceanlove #sunshine
When clients want to shoot in FULL SUN ☀️ mid day— we get to play!!! Now go with me here for a second… light is like yoga or a sport for me but in photography. In sports there is a usually a ball or object you are passing around with your hands or feet (playing with) to achieve a goal. And in yoga or dance or swimming your body is the object in motion. Now think about the object for photographers- LIGHT or THE SUN! . 🌞 Why I freaking love photography is because there is the ball of hot gas 92.69 million miles ( I looked it up) away that i get to play with essentially in my art. I don’t work with paint or clay, my medium is the SUN. I get to read how the sun is affecting my object and play with how the rays of intensity are hitting my subjects face from different angles. From full sun to defused light to indirect sun to back light etc…This may sound super nerdy but ANYONE other photographer WITH ME on this?! . 🌞 We got to play with the shadows on yesterdays shoot, work their angles, move the objects till they were just right- till I achieved my goal…sorta like sports. Maybe my brain gets this because my art was golf, swimming, gymnastics, and cycling growing up before I ever found the art of photography— but light is my new sport.
I forgot to tell Liz & Sam to bring different shoes to hike Cathedral Rock in 😂 but they really broke in their leather shoes. I think my favorite thing about last night was getting to know this amazing, easy going, hilarious couple up and down these ridiculous red rock mountains we call home. #sedona #sedonaweddingphotographer #sunset
I have this saying I always use to say... we were made for beauty. I picked it up while I was living in the country side of Italy. It was hard to find something “ugly” in Italy. When I came back to Indiana I was craving beauty but found it in the most unusual ways. . 🌿 Beauty sure is these florals on the beach with perfect light but, it’s also dinner on the floor with my best friends surrounded around candles, morning walks when it’s -2 with ice covering the trees, or tears in my art professors eyes expressing how proud he is of us. . 🌿 “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is what they say... what is your beauty? Where do you find it and see it? #weweremadeforbeauty #beach #florals
I got it from my mama...NO really I did. My compassion for kids/people, my creative hands, my green eyes, the way I can read a situation with intuition, my love for reading, and my social/extrovertedness- all thanks to mama Gray. She is so worth being celebrated not just on Mother’s Day but everyday. Who would I be without you? #adaylate #mothersday
They wanted to get eloped in Vegas…but not the typical elopement you are thinking of. I told a few people I had an elopement with a cute couple from Australia and they’re responses were “oh fun like in the Little White Chapel?” or “Is Elvis marrying them?” Not a chance people!! My couples are not the norm. They are the exception. They wanted to get married next to the Red Rocks of Nevada with the sunsetting and mountains smiling on them all around. . 👫 My couples the are love makers and risk takers of the world. They care more about their people than their details. They savor experiences rather than material items. They thrive in the mountains where their dress gets a little dirty and their hair gets wild from the wind. On Fridays they go dancing, Saturdays are for a hike with the dogs, and Sundays are left for family and friends..always. Perfection is not an word in their vocabulary. Her make up might not be perfect, with tears rolling down her face, she laughs till her belly hurts, and smiles because she realizes these sort of moments that create a beautiful life- the messy, real, honest ones. . 👫 Tag 3 people you know who this describes above. These are the rare couples of the world and I want to KNOW THEM!
