places I love: New Jersey

places I love: New Jersey

Typically when I say "I love New Jersey" people assume I'm talking about the shore. While I have nothing against the Jersey Shore, I'm referring to the other side of the state. Just this past week I was able to spend some time around Frenchtown, where Chris's family resides, where things are green, beautiful, and […]

Sunday Inspiration: umbrellas

Sunday Inspiration: umbrellas

I saw these images a few days ago and they stuck with me so I wanted to share them with you. What I love about them is that although ¬†umbrellas are typically used during dark and stormy weather, this installation in Portugal is a playful contrast. Apparently they were part of an exhibit for an […]

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 […]

a girl’s best friend

I didn't grow up with pets and my first "pets" were beetles (not kidding). I had fish when I was little but the poor things never lasted very long. It wasn't until high school that my parents finally allowed me to get a cat (and now he's replaced me in the family tree). Animals don't […]

it’s a new year!

I hit the big TWO-FOUR last week so I'm officially a big girl. Here's an update on what I've been up to! Food - I really don't like the word "diet" but the way I eat is mostly paleo. I'm avoiding dairy whenever possible because I'm lactose-intolerant and it gives me acne (and feeling like […]

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 206, 208, 209

Do you ever have those days when you've got a thousand thoughts/ideas running through your head but can't fully grasp a single one? That's kind of how this week has been thus far. Quite frankly, I'm blaming it on coffee. Spent Monday night at a coworker's Good-bye get-together at a local bar. It really says […]

Day 205 – 7.24.2011

Some relief from the heat today! A small rainstorm rushed through and left puddles everywhere. Sidenote: I've also been playing around with Aperture all day so please forgive the post-processing flaws, it's the only way I'll learn.   I've mentioned before that I try to get one item from the Farmer's Market that I've never […]

Day 182 – 7.1.2011

I am DETERMINED to get over my fear of photographing people I don't know. I forced myself to linger around the Downtown Mall and shoot since there were lots of people walking around. After seeing my friend Kyle perform The Anatomy of Frank's solo act, I ventured towards the Pavillion for some good solid crowd […]

Day 180 – 6.29.2011

I've had a lot of free time recently but it feels like I'm always rushing around. Ever since I was young, I've thrived on structure - everything must be scheduled. That's what I'm almost never late to anything. But lately, it's been making me a little crazy. With so much time to do what I […]
