Ohhhh my goodness, it's been forever since I've posted anything! And well, a lot has happened since then... Two of the best are that I've presented my BFA Exhibition, and I got to go to Florida for Thanksgiving break! It was a much needed break that couldnt have come at a more perfect time.

I rode on a train from Norman, OK to Dallas. It was my first time on a train, but thanks to the new friend I made, it definitly wont be my last. Her name is Ms. Cynthia and we instantly clicked. I felt like she had been a friend of mine for a while and this was us using every second we could to reconnect. We discovered that we had the same train back, and thought it'd be great to find eachother and sit together again. I was getting a little discouraged when I didnt find her in the Ft Worth train station, but I found her as we were boarding and I couldnt have been happier. She continued to tel me all about her life, including a fun lunch group she goes out with, her photographer husband & family, and the various volunteering positions she's held throughout her life. She was inspiring and very easy to get along with. I saw no judgement in her eyes and loved me for who I was, even though she just met me.

I even got her address to hopefully send her a Christmas card and visit her in the near future :)

More Florida photos to come later!

BFA Photoshoot: Day 1, Behind the Scenes

The stresses of organizing & executing a photoshoot (especially ones that determine if you graduate after 5 years of being in college) are pretty crazy. Amongst all of the great photos I got today, these are a couple "behind the scenes" or funny photos I shot.
Hopefully seeing these photos will lighten any stress you have, like it did for me :)

Sammi & Kirsten acting goofy! :D

A wonderful photo of my friend Matt.

Friend photos!!!! :)

Bunnies, Eggs & Homemade Headbands

Wow, it has been a WHILE! I've been busy with so many things, its nice to get a chance to post something :)

Today I had the privilege of taking Easter/4 month photos of Temperance Ann. Lemme just tell you right now.... She's ADORABLE! A very happy baby who watched Tangled with us after our session, and ya know what? I think she actually enjoyed it! Smart child, getting started early on Disney movies. It helps that she has parents with good movie taste :) But then again, its Tangled. I mean, I don't think I've met anyone who doesnt like that movie! So without further adieu, here she is, Ms. Temperance Ann!
