With a little over 3 weeks left in this challenge, I’m starting to reflect on what it’s been like so far. If I could go back in time, I probably still would have chosen blogging as my thing. Have I enjoyed it? Not particularly. It hasn’t been awful but it still doesn’t feel quite like

At the end of July, I hosted a gallery for my 100 paintings! It was humbling and left my floored. I ended up selling 71 of the 100 pieces and I’m still floored. I thought I’d share some photos that other people posted of their visit or their paintings back home. My sister and I also […]

I did it! I completed #the100dayproject! And now, I have 100 paintings. And I’m happier. If you want to hear all about my experience, check out Elise’s podcast. Elise took the project on and shared 100 pep talks on her Instagram. So many days they seemed to speak directly to me! We got together and

[An epic Bloody Mary, a visit from the Newsom duo, a visit back home, a portrait of Meghan, studio vibes and Wilson the pup] I’m back to shooting film (I believe this was a roll of Kodak Ektar…my favorite!) but now I have to wait a full week for each roll to get developed. It […]

I go shopping every year on my birthday. I buy a lot of clothes. The next year, I hate all my clothes and I repeat. It’s a bad habit and it stopped this year! It went down like this: Adam: You should buy new AG jeans this year for your birthday! Me: Oh yeah! That’d […]

I was shooting non-stop last month for our Death to Stock trip. I got tired of lugging my DSLR around and haven’t really touched it in a few weeks besides full day client shoots. It makes me sad and am thinking about buying a smaller camera for everyday life with friends, family and at our studio. [&hell

…you shoot with artificial light. This is the first year that I started shooting with studio lights. I started incorporating them into product photography to get the sharp look I was trying to achieve. Then November hit and the temps in Ohio dropped to 8 degrees and I realized that if I want to push [&hel

I was considered an artist and a painter most of my childhood (into my teens). In college and up until this year, I was called a designer. The other day Adam called me a photographer and I kind of freaked out. I’m not sure if any of you can relate but it’s been a transition […]

I only blogged once last week because it was THE WEEK OF PHOTOSHOOTS! It was pretty rad but (as an introvert) I’m excited for a pretty chill week this week! Up above you can see some behind the scene looks from the shoots: 12-hour photo and video shoot for Ecco Domani on Tuesday. I project […]

I’ve been shooting a lot lately and thought I’d share some of my most recent projects! From top to bottom: Pluma Jewelry, House of Earnest, Danielle Evans of Food Typography for The Guardian, Death to the Stock Photo, Simi Botic, Alex White and Pluma Jewelry again! PS: If you’re in the Columb

  I recently had a photo session with Jessica on the first day of fall. The shoot, for me, was very different than those I’ve shot in the past. I actually spent time thinking about it beforehand. Just like designing – I’m always pushing myself to sketch things out first. To think about it

I’ve been pretty busy lately. Mostly juggling the business side of things with creative work. I’ve had a lot of photoshoots and have been learning a lot. I decided to host a pop-up shoot at a local park and charged $30 for a 15 minute shoot with people and their dogs! I used all of […]
