i put up a quick preview of bree up just a few weeks ago, but seeing as per how TODAY is her actual birthday… and how her mom is a dream client (who shares my love of black and whites, can you tell?) i figured it’s worth putting up another load of favorites. she’s too cute not to share!
much love, and the happiest of birthdays to this very happy little girl!
so for demo day at marble mountain just a few weekends ago i had the chance to work with one of my favorite people (and photographers!) David Howells again while on a shoot for Magine Snowboards. and although the weather was mildly uncooperative, we all still managed to get a few shots and figured i’d post some outtakes.
a huge thanks again to dave for asking myself and jess along, and to the Magine boys for being so good about it too!
another portrait shot for school! phil’s been the easiest so far, so a huge thanks goes out for that! apparently if you tell a guy to sit on a coffee table in front of a window, he’ll laugh at how ridiculous you are, you take a shot of the “your absolutely whacked” smile, and your done 30 seconds later. ain’t no thing.
in other boring news, i finally don’t have a temperature of 40 degrees like i have for the past three days! whew. what a way to forget your name and all other obligations. thankfully the very kind doctor i saw yesterday helped and gave me every medication under the sun for the flu (not exaggerating, i write this while loving glancing at a puffer, antibiotics, nasonex which i have since ditched because unless you enjoy the taste of metal i don’t recommend, and ibuprofen). the funnest of times.
but its back to the homework grind again. this countdown of mine is about to tip into the forties!
this break from school this week is a bit of a saving grace and its helping me get over some bad feedback too. bad is a relative term i guess, it’s not end-of-the-world worthy but i tend to take things to heart sometimes. especially with the end being so close now that any hiccups are going to come across frustrating… but also in the same respect, the end is so close that its comforting enough to help me not let too much of a chip come off my shoulder. just to be a devils advocate i suppose!
disclaimer: if your under the age of 18 (is that when you graduate high school? 22 is feeling really old right now), then when you don’t know, what your teachers won’t tell you, and what the student loans people don’t want you to know so you spend every last penny hanging around for 52 years, and what your profs want to keep blanketed and far over your head… is that university is the farthest thing from real life. on this planet. ever.
really though, finishing is going to be the biggest relief.
(on this planet. EVER.)
do i mention that in every blog post? probably. my redundant apologies! although maybe if your finding this frustrating… unsubscribe until april. that’s when i’m done. which i’ve already mentioned, and will in all likelihood mention another 278 times until then!
this little princess is turning one this week and i’m SO happy her parents asked me out to their beautiful home in pinchgut to do some photos. she was so pleasant, and i got such a kick at her throwing her head back and laughing at her parents and my attempt to keep her attention!
this is just a quick preview, there’s a load more favorites and smash the cake photos to follow! bree… your just too cute.
it might have been (absolutely freezing) out but it sure looked pretty! these guys were troopers letting me drag them to a few places around the city, and i couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. hope you like!
i was lucky enough to meet this little doll’s parents while on the jamaica wedding trip we photographed back in december, so when tonya contacted me afterwards and asked for a family session i had to say yes! she and lee are absolutely hilarious, so i of course jumped at the chance to meet their little head banger. (tonya has a video of emily doing this, not kidding. its hilarious).
another fun fact: lee has the fastest growing hair of any person i’ve ever met. when i met up with them for this shoot at first glance i didn’t know who he was, considering his much darker head of hair compared to very closely shaved head he was sporting in jamaica. truth.
in all honesty though, they were a wicked family to shoot and i’m really happy with how the photos turned out. hope you like!
