I recently realized I have a thing about taking photos of beer glasses. They can be full, or completely empty, or somewhere in between.
Do you have any quirky trends in your work? Either way, cheers to your week!
This is a repost from two years ago. We are once again in Greagle, with the exact same menu. The only thing that has changed is the kids- how did they get so big?!
I am sharing today to inspire your 4th of July menus! Enjoy
As the family becomes settled in the Pacific Northwest, my photography business is also doing the same. I am excited to announce a new space on the internet. My portfolio and a new blog are up! Please have a look around and follow along if you like what you see. This space will soon be password protected and primarily for close friends and family.
Click on over to Focus In Photography! I am so excited for this new start!
Yummiest cupcakes for a 40th
I never realized how much I had been missing a creative community until last year.
On Sunday evening, I went to a gathering under the guise of “off camera flash workshop” and was hit with such generosity and friendship. I was humbled. I hadn’t realized that so many of my fellow Facebook friends had been following along and that I had made an impact on them. I mean, look at me, I am kinda cra-cra.
But you guys, they brought a GIANT cake, bacon wrapped something or others and then we went out and played with off camera flash. It was pretty awesome.
Thanks again to my Reno Photografriends. You all have no idea how much I have learned from each of you. I feel honored to be a part of your gang and to be allowed to stay despite my zip code change next week.
Big news, big changes. Andy was offered a job in Tacoma, Washington. That’s two states away. We thought about it, mulled it over. Pros and cons, and all of the above. We have actually been thinking about some sort of a move for a long time. And decided it was one of those, “if not now then when”, moments and he accepted the offer.
Packing the house, selling off things that we don’t want to lug two states away and gifting other things. I have packed a bag of clothes for the kids and threw the rest of their things into boxes with labels. I have done the same for my things. I have filled up several garbage bags with random what is this? stuff that have amassed in the past year and a half. Pack and purge, pack and purge.
We will be renting an apartment for about six months until we can get our heads wrapped around the neighborhoods of Tacoma. Eventually, we will purchase a house if everything seems to be settling in the way we want it to.
The idea of having a big going away part was tempting, but honestly, we knew we wouldn’t get to see and talk to everyone in a way we wanted so we are each doing our best to meet up with friends and family before we are north bound.
It’s scary and exciting, but mostly exciting. I can’t wait to show you a new city, a new state for that matter through my lens. Here’s to adventures!!
I woke up super early this morning. I tossed on some clothes, brushed my teeth and headed out the door with my gear in hand. My first stop at Starbucks met me with dark windows. You know it’s early when they haven’t turned on the lights yet.
I headed north and found my way to the second coffee shop. Extra hot latte in hand, I made my way up to the windy meeting spot that we had all agreed to the day before. I was the first one there, but was soon joined by three other cars. We unloaded and realized that we couldn’t get to the part of the park we wanted because of locked gates.
A quick change of plans and we piled back into our cars and headed to one of the parking garages in downtown. We shot as long as we could stand with the cold wind and then decided it was time to head over to breakfast.
I love that I have local photography friends that will dork out over ISO and shutter speeds. Who talk shit to each other about Nikon or Canon and who are all willing to teach and learn from one another. Thanks for waking up early gang! that was a fun morning.
Mad love for the Yashica that we found while exploring American Flats with the Photowalkers of Reno.
Now head over to see what Adriana has going down for her five favorites this month.
I have been fortunate enough to find a great group of photographers here in Reno. A few weeks back, four of us hiked in 3 miles to see a frozen waterfall. There were so many laughs, a few falls (ice and mud and backpacks full of photo gear really don’t play nicely together). The trip was so fun that we started plotting a second adventure.
On Sunday we drove up to Virginia City and grabbed a quick bite to eat and then kicked up some dust and caravanned into a spot known as American Flats. Oh, and did I mention that part of the goal for the day was to get some killer bubble photos? I will let the images do the talking. Thanks again to a great group of people willing to be silly and awesome at their craft.
