Here's a casual blog of my shoots, outtakes, adventures, and probably what I ate for lunch.

  • Do you ever feel that you sometimes don't experience enough real life if you're constantly taking pictures of it? Like maybe you'd experience it more if you didn't have the camera in front of your face? Or does this not happen to you?

    Asked by nutterjack

    Interesting question! I don’t ever feel like that, mainly because I don’t bring my camera everywhere I go. Honestly, I only use it when I have a legit shoot, that brick is wayyyy too heavy and valuable to bring on daily adventures. I shoot with my phone otherwise, but only when I see the beauty in something! Tons of my life isn’t documented. Going out to dinner with the boys, laughing, spilling soy sauce everywhere, trips to the mall, telling my Mom & Auntie about my day on the porch, heart to hearts and laughs with my friends… I experience it all. And for the things I DO stop to photograph, it’s for a reason! My heart and soul is photography, and a lot of the time I wouldn’t remember that little moment if I didn’t have a picture of it. And I create adventures when I go shoot - I have the fondest memories from all my shoots, even WITH the camera up to my face for at least some of the time. So for me, I definitely don’t feel like I’m missing out with any form of camera in front of my face :) I’m experiencing even more.

    Probably the only person I’d wake up to shoot with at 6am. And the only person I would give a piggyback through a soaking wet field of thorns. And shoot topless so she could sit on my shirt. Love this princess. #xoxoxo #fairytale #magicmorning
