create and capture

The beauty of dying mediums will never lose its appeal to me. Letter writing, libraries, mix CDs. I don’t shoot with film often, but boy when I do, I can just feel the magic. The uncertainty of not knowing what moment you captured. The patience until you click the last frame. The surprise of seeing […]

building community and creating art

There are a lot of cool things about this internet age…a lot of unfortunate things to be sure, but a lot of really inspiring content and connection nonetheless. It’s so easy to snap photos, hit publish, stream video to thousands of people in the blink of an eye; all it takes is a half decent camera […]

documenting solo travel

I don’t think it’s any surprise that I love photos – taking them and being in them. All through college I was unofficially designated as the group photographer and carried my camera with me everywhere. This lead to a LOT of photos (for which I know everyone was secretly grateful, even if they did make […]

alice’s adventures in wonderland

I have been wanting to see the Exposition Park Rose Garden since spring – and what better opportunity to visit than an Alice inspired shoot amongst the roses? I think by now the whole universe knows how dear Alice is to my heart, so I was pretty jazzed about this shoot. I also tend to be the one behind […]

instagram spotlight

It’s no secret around here that I love Instagram. Like. love. it. It’s my favorite phone app and really the only reason I wanted a smart phone (I’m only half joking). Anyway, I follow a lot of people on Instagram. There are so many accounts I follow that inspire me in a million ways, but […]

europe on film

I finally got my film developed from our Europe trip – only a couple of rolls as I mostly used my phone (no DSLR this trip). I used a new film I was able to get on Amazon Now, so whether it’s the quality of the film or user error, there weren’t as many I […]

for the love of film

Hey remember how I used to have a film camera that I would take photos with? Here’s a roll of film I never shared, and I figured it’s about time to – moments captured from the end of summer as it transitioned to fall. There are no photos of me and a lot of photos […]

sister sister

A visit with my sister is obviously never complete without a photo shoot. During my time back home in Texas, we were busy, and it was HOT, but we managed to squeeze in few minutes to take some shots outside of my sister’s apartment. I really haven’t used my DSLR at all this year, so […]

my favorite film photos from 2014

It has been a while since I used my film camera. In 2014, I shot almost exclusively with it, but when the holidays rolled around I picked my DSLR back up (since I would be taking so many more photos and having the digital files were much easier to share). It’s great to mix things up, and I’m glad […]

a change!

Last week I chopped my hair off! It was a big decision, but I needed a change for a variety of reasons (my hair hasn’t been short for almost 10 years). And with a hair change comes new headshots (welcome to an actor’s life!). I’m waiting to hear back from my representatives which headshots they […]
