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!
Today I graduated from Clemson University with a BS in Biology in two and a half years. I have had a surprisingly great time here at Clemson, and I am hoping to continue my education here in Plant and Environmental Sciences. However, it is now time for a gap semester because apparently, I did not plan too well for after college if my first plan did not work. So in the mean time, I am going to keep doing my photographer thing and find a job (hopefully) with some relation to plants or art (maybe both!). Wish me luck!

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!
