It hailed on my car on the way to TN. So eating away my sorrows with bbq so can’t say I’m too sad
there is something about being able to create beauty with your hands & I’m thankful for @lishmariephoto for capturing the beauty that I get to make each day. For #fridayintroductions tell me what you’re proud to create
I'm in the thick of wedding season and heart is relaxed and full. I've been shooting so many tiny weddings this summer, and they are my absolute favorite. The couples are calm and completely focused on one another...it really makes my job a joy.
Oh, and here's a happy sunflower from one of my favorite wedding venues... The Barn at Wagon Wheel Farm. Happy Friday!
Y'AAAAAAALLLLLL! GUESS WHAT I JUST DIDDDDD!!!!
Ok I won't make you guess. I just bought a ticket to attend @hustleandflowofficial in LA in October!!! Ahhhhhh!!! I am WIGGIN because a) I'm SO excited, I've been meaning to commit to this for a couple months but have been afraid to make the leap, but also b) YIKEZ there goes 1/4 of my bank account lol.
BUT I can't be too concerned about the money because this workshop will pay for itself and then some in the long run AND I get another chance to visit my dear SoCal.
For anyone who doesn't know, Hustle and Flow is a workshop for photographers that teaches ONLY the business side. Which is seriously just what I need. I've been learning a lot about the artistic side of photography, and I find it pretty fun and easy to learn, plus I already had a baseline education there. However, when it comes to business, I know jack shit and I need someone to kick my ass into gear. Specifically, the Hons, who I adore and admire.
Cheers to taking my business to the next level!!
SO going to road trip down to Florida and I had wanted to go to Lauren Daigle’s concert but it was out of the way in Peoria and I was thinking how am I going to fit it in. I guess I could stop there before heading to Florida but then thought it’d be a bad idea since I’d then have to drive all the way by myself. But then just yesterday, I saw she had a tour open up and it’s at Rosemont and it’s way closer and then bam, I bought tickets so I’m going and thats all. that’s my story lol * @karileemadden
Prime Day, all I got was stuff that wasn’t even part of prime day. Like a 16 large ice cube maker and a replacement for my Kershaw that I lost. Just a regular day of shopping for useless stuff ♂️
You wouldn’t believe (or maybe you would) how many people I photograph are like “Im ok with using this building if the name of the building doesn’t show in the photos” Amen folks.....Amen. #Chicagoans who know the #City knows what building this is, its a shame I can’t avoid it but its so damn classy looking :)
Running thru some old pics from a year ago and found this with my collab with @rachael.simone and @mannyortizphoto_ for his Canon 5d4 vs a7rii video. I had both those cameras and now they’re long gone. I’m all Sony camera bodies now on another note, I’ve been up since 530a watching National Geographic. What’s wrong with me
I’m currently in Nashville!!! I had such a fun session yesterday (sneaks to come soon) and now I am on my way to have some coffee with friends and then attend the @hustleandflowofficial workshop!!! GUYS! I am so excited!!!!!! Happy Tuesday!
Hey Chicago, I have a secret, and I can't wait to share it with you!
Happy MONDAY! This weekend was a rollercoaster, let me tell you! But now I have some amazing goals!
We played in 100 degree weather on TURF!...TURF! Little black rubber pellets everywhere, making your feet feel like hot iron. The comedy of watching people sit on the ground with their feet in the air during breaks is unparalleled.
On top of that, it was a new team and new experience for me. We hadn't played in a tournament yet, and learning where I was needed or not needed is a hard learning curve.
Then I left my credit card at a brewery, my book at the hotel and my emotions all over the floor. WOOF.
But after this weekend, I was excited to get back to work, excited to ask for frisbee feedback and excited to get to a slight cooler Chicago. SO Monday is off to a good start!
