Ladies and Gentlemen, you've seen them separately, but be prepared to see them together! These two have been dating for roughly four years and I have the pleasure of being Matthew's roommate. All of us went to high school together and I have loved watching them grow and discover so many things with each other.
Anjali goes to Brown, so there are very few chances for her to be here with us to do a shoot. But hot dang we did it!
I had the pleasure to work with Grace Adams, an Augusta blogger, over the Christmas break. I actually went to pre-school with Grace and when we asked Instagram what we should do next, her idea wowed us. The makeup artist was Karrie Lykins and I cannot believe the look that we came up with and she created!
These were shot in my dining room with mom's ring light as our main source. Thank goodness for black dining room walls, am I right? Maybe I should be doing fashion photography for a living? lol

I have been dabbling in film photography for a hot minute now. In high school I developed some film, but never really touched it after that. Now, about a year ago, I found an old (working!) Minolta film camera and I have been slowly learning how to use film. It is a little more expensive and no one gives you back negatives unless you send the film off for developing, but it is loads of fun. I like that you don't get to see the photo that you took until you get them back. It makes me remember memories that I had forgotten about because I have to constantly remind myself to take the film in. I take it to Walgreens by the way (it's pretty cheap and good quality and speed). Also, I love using disposable cameras when I am on family adventures and don't need all of the options that come with a real camera!
Let me know if you have film questions or want to see more of my film work!
My roommate, Beymer, has a dog. She turns one year old very soon. We decided to do a Christmas mini session. Here is something to brighten up your Monday.
So, I have this very cute boyfriend who doesn't to be photographed, BUT he is a chef and likes his food to be photographed. Yesterday, I looked at him and told him I wanted to be creative. He said, "I've got spray paint." Yeah, not at 9pm. Then he mentioned dinner and I was like, "yo, food photography." Thankfully he agreed and I got a REALLY GOOD BATCH OF FRENCH TOAST!
Long story short, enjoy some yummy food tonight.
To make this yummy toast, we did: three eggs, dash of milk, cinnamon, and vanilla.
Then he added some homemade jam and pomegranates!
Hailey has been in at least one of my classes since I started college. At some point, we started complaining about biochem and became friends! Her and her man, Andrew, are adorably cute and have been dating for just about three years. I love how happy he makes her and vice versa. Every time I would say, "and KISS!" there was an epic moment awaiting my camera. I loved it and them.
We had a kind of impromptu photoshoot with one of my favorite models, Kelsey Toole. I saw another photo of a girl with striking eyes and glitter on her face, so I decided that I wanted to throw glitter on someone with beautiful eyeballs. Obviously, Kelsey came to mind! I strolled on over to the dollar store and bought spider webs in a bag and two black poster boards. After making a little box with my boards and taking a few pictures, we strung up the webs and BOOM. Enjoy the photos. I even think the non-webbed photos would work for Christmas, so I will post more then!
This is Jake Stokes. He is a smarty guitar player who will rocks your world upon meeting you. I have known him since high school and I have loved seeing him become the man that he is today. Stokes, you are amazeballs and you should keep doing you.
After each one of these people (and more) sent me these kinds of photos and videos of these on facebook, I had to do it. We sat down and carved four pumpkins and a pineapple (which didn't really work as well as we thought) and then rushed to take these before the Chronicle meeting that 3/4 of us needed to attend. The whole thing took about $10 and two hours to accomplish. So if you need a cheap and fun shot, I suggest it!
