Art Degree: Grad Pics for Ari

Before my friend Ari reached out for me to take her graduation announcement photos, I was worried my photo taking opportunities were drying up.

When it comes to writing, you aren’t supposed to find your style immediately–at least to Strunk and White (more on Elements of Style to come). Practicing correct form and interpreting other’s styles is key to creating your own personal style. This tennis court flower shoot was one of my first photo sessions with my DSLR, and while it may not be completely original, I was proud of how it turned out.

Forget Me Not: A Styled Couple’s Shoot

This was my second styled shoot of this year, allowing me to test out my new (at least it was new to me then) 50mm Canon f/1.4 lens. My model-friend, Dakota brought along a male model to the Tennessee River for this Lana Del Rey, sad-girl inspired shoot. Continue reading “Forget Me Not: A Styled Couple’s Shoot”

My sister wore some of my high waisted flares, my striped mustard navy crop, and my thrifted belt for her 70’s Mama look. (Swapping instead of shopping–hey hey.)

Rose Baby Boutique provided my niece’s boho outfit. Rose Baby is a family owned business that operates through Facebook, giving their customers outfit updates in their newsfeeds if they’re a member of the group. I’m a huge fan of the owners and the cute boho baby looks the small shop offers. If you want to check them out, visit rosebaby.sale/shop. (Also, my niece wore Style #sku7 and Style #sku5.)

If any other mamas or families want a vintage inspired shoot, let me know! I’d love to provide some fun photo memories for you ❤️

Expired Film Roll: 2014-2017
