fall is here!

fall is here!

Something changed in the wind overnight. We woke up this morning and could feel the crispness in the air. Our original goal was to go hike Humpback Rock at sunrise, but who were we kidding? We hit that snooze button faster than you can say, "where's my coffee?" Around 8 o'clock we stirred and got […]

It's been a while since I have posted and for that, I apologize. Life has been a little crazy recently - I ended my position at a local restaurant and am now working for a local photographer in hopes of absorbing and learning everything & anything. Needless to say, I've been a little stressed. Stressed […]

my love affair

I must confess. I've been having an affair. With my iPhone. Phew. There, I said it. My poor little DSLR must hate me. But it's just too bulky for me to take everywhere! My iPhone is sleek and adaptable. It has allowed me to just capture moments and memories without having to fiddle with the […]

local, seasonal, delicious

This past Saturday was the last Charlottesville City Farmers' Market that I will attend for the year. From April until December, I did not miss a Saturday (aside from the time I was in Guatemala). I experienced an entire season of local, organic produce and meats. This is what I've learned in the last 8 […]

August 29, Day 241

I spent a lot of walking around town today! I've been making an effort to use my car less and less and since I haven't been having the best of luck trying to find a small-framed bike, I'm using my legs instead. After spending my morning at a local coffee shop, I went on a […]

Days 211 – 219

Alright, confession time: I'm definitely going through a blogging lull. It's an incredibly busy time right now (including my first time shooting at a wedding, mastering kale, working too many doubles, double-under whip burns, driving like a mad woman around Virginia, and barely getting enough sleep) so I hope I'll be inspired to blog/write more […]

Days 190, 191

Spent Saturday morning being very Charlottesville-y: walked to yoga (in my Vibrams), headed to the Farmer's Market (bought lots of local stuff), and walked home (still in my Vibrams). Yadda yadda yadda. Yes, I'm a nouveau-hippie. (This just made me laugh - "NO WHINING")Well-known fact: when the train comes through Charlottesville - everything must come […]

Day 165 – 6.14.2011

I got some really exciting news today! I sent in a photo to the Whole Foods Charlottesville Food Photography Contest and found out my photo is a finalist! It's been an inspirational couple of days - this surge of creative energy has been oozing out of me. I've been taking photos, playing around with the […]
