How cool is this mural I photographed with my LC-A in Pilsen?

I briefly mentioned the fact that I took the plunge and decided to go freelance as a photographer! I am SO excited about this. It's something I've thought about for a few years now but have always been too intimidated to do. This year Christopher encouraged me to go for it and I'm so happy I have. My Fall is nearly completely booked and the clients I'll be working with are so incredible. I feel so grateful for every inquiry, honestly and then I feel like doing a serious happy dance each time a client and I nail down their wedding photography plan and I'm included! It's such an awesome thrill!

I shoot weddings digitally but also incorporate instant photography as well. It's been a really fun adventure balancing the two- I hope to shoot more and more instant only weddings! I have one booked for next year in Vegas! How fun is that?! 

If you know of anyone looking for a wedding photographer who loves instant film, send em my way! I have a camera and I will travel! I'm also welcoming tips from fellow freelancers. What do you do to keep yourself on task? I use Evernote for a perpetual To Do list, but welcome tips.

I'm so stoked to have one of my photos grace the pages of the May issue of Rangefinder Magazine. The feature I was in is can be found in the "Trends + Technology" section of the magazine. The article entitled, "The One Thing..." interviews 5 wedding photographers and asks them what the one thing that sets them apart is. I addressed the fact that I shoot instant photos at weddings, duh! The photo that went to print was of a couple holding their Impossible Project portraits! 

A great big thank you to David Carol for interviewing me and being awesome in general!

I'm back! The past few months have brought a lot of change into my life. I promise I'll be brief but since I last posted a lot has happened!

I finally graduated college! Nothin' fancy, but I'm glad to be done with school. My Mom, whom I adore, came for a visit and we were able to spend Mother's Day together at Dose Market. It was a lot of fun! She showed me how to cook some delicious things, we went on fun shopping dates and I'm pretty sure we went to Starbucks and had lemon loaf's every day of her visit!

The day after my Mom went back home, I left for Florida to shoot a wedding. I got to see some old friends from High School, my lifelong best friend Tiffany and her family and new house, which was really rad and really eye opening that we're actually grown adult women! I forget that from time to time. The wedding was gorgeous. I had the pleasure of seeing old friends who live all around the US now and we re-lived our twenties on the dance floor for one night together which was fun for the night, but man do I not miss my 20's!

While I was in Florida, our 5 year anniversary happened! I can't believe Christopher and I have been married 5 years already! That's practically an eternity!

Oh, I never really mentioned that I quit my job at Lomography to be a freelance photographer! It's been a strange transition. So far, I've been pretty busy but things look to slow down in July and I'm a little anxious about what I'll do with my free time. My hope is that I'll actually work on personal projects, like scanning in 13 or so years or negatives but the reality might be that I'll sit on my couch and watch Lost because it's all I've done since I've gotten back from Florida and I am hopelessly addicted!

More soon, for now....more Lost!

The 100th Words To Shoot By post. So happy to be a part of this amazing blog that keeps me shooting! The word for this week was, Moment. I submitted a few special moment's Christopher and I spent with our Niece before she moved to another state. We'll miss her sweet, cute antics!
