Just thinking

Sometimes don't you have to hope that things happen for a reason. Maybe there was something you have to do before that thing you want so badly can happen.

SIDE NOTE: Emme is crazy chasing a bug in my room and biting at the air. She is adorable.

I just realized I didn't have a picture up of Brando so here's a little blurb about him and his wonderfulness... I gotta get mushy too. Sorry.

Meet Brandon Sadler. He is all around awesome dude.
This man has one of the best senses of humor. He can make this stick in the mud (me) laugh no matter what the obstacle. Each and every day he finds something to appreciate that I would have overlooked. He is simple and easy going. I couldn't ask for anything better than him.

xo forever.

p.s. made him the fish and he loved it. KNEW IT

I love the Fishes Because they're so Delish

THE BEST Fish Sticks
I found this recipe on, like usual, but it blew my mind. I plan on making them for Brandon when he visits me this week. I think he will love them just as much as I do!

Shannon {of SNS Photography}

This is Shannon. Not only is she kind of my boss, but she is also a really cool person and I'd like her to be a good friend. She lives realistically. She is down to earth but fun loving. She has accomplished some amazing things in her 21 years of life. And as of right now I am aspiring to be like her.
Today we practiced portraits with her AMAAAZZING Canon EOS 5D Mark II. I really need to start understanding the functionality of each setting on my xs before I think bigger. I took the photo to the right plus 100 more. She thinks she's the worst to photograph, but how is that possible when she is so pretty? She's got it all wrong.

packed my life in a box

Seeing that I have to moved out of my current house by the 15th of May,(realistically I'll need to have my stuff somewhere by the 6th) I have been packing like crazy. Today I will try to get the kitchen and the rest of the little stuff done. I have a place I REALLY really really want. I have to wait and see what the bank says. GAH!

I think tonight I will go to cranes roost with my mom, if she agrees, and practice with the flash one last time. I want to write down the settings that I have so I can have notes for the big day. It's 11:07 I better get going.

Hello Spring!!

 I am so happy it is not cold any longer. And I guess coming from a Floridian that seems like a really stupid statement. No Floridian knows cold. 

Meet Natalie: Fun and beautiful. She and I spent one night and one beautiful day at the beach condo her family owns. It was just the vacation getaway I needed. She is one of my favorite people right now. She has so many things on her plate but wakes up with a smile on her face every day. Congrats. At the beach I practiced a bit with my camera so this is what I have...

  Look at this cutie pie

life update

So I started doing some photography work. I am very excited about this because I have always adored photography. Somehow, I got a position as a second shooter for Shannon Smith. I actually showed my parents her website (etc) when they bought me my rebel. Of course I have never taken photography seriously up until this point. Right now I have a Canon Rebel EOS xs. It is a nice camera but it is definitely beginner compared to her camera. I have the lens it came with and I invested in a 50 mm f/1.8. I have two batteries and battery pack (which wasn't essential by any means I just think it makes me look more legit) Two memory cards, and a wireless remote. Oh and recently for fun I bought a fisheye adaptor. Might be useful at weddings? But highly doubt it?So my job is detail shots like on the right (NOT MINE, just an example)

Well along with this job I can't really post any of my photos. and it's not a really it is a can not(period). But that's okay. I have ownership of all my practice photos outside of the job. I am so thankful to work with Shannon she is wonderful. She is young and fun. But what I like the most is she is willing to teach this lost soul.

So thank you Shannon
