Tiffany & Baker

I often forget to be grateful. Scratch that, I forget wayyy too often. I forget to be grateful for simple everyday things like being able to eat three meals a day or having a car to drive. I also forget to be grateful for my clients . . . cause my kind of clients are clients that turn into friends. Tiffany and Baker were the kind that turn into friends and the kind where though I might be rushing around with my camera all day, my heart is filled to the brim the entire time. There were some tears on their wedding day, a lot of mosquitoes and even some rain (okay, a lot of rain) but the closeness of family and the couple's relationship stood out more than anything. 

After grabbing some storm photos (that I ended up lovin!) instead of sunset photos on their wedding day, rain is now my friend. And Shelby Hills Farm has been one of my favorite barn venues out here in Kentucky and the other vendors were so kind to work with. I'll give em a shout out below!

Justin Gambino

I met Justin last year when he was on tour and played at Harvest Cafe and Coffee out in Shelbyville. When I heard he was passing through Kentucky again and he needed some photos, I jumped at the chance. Justin has some good stuff (check him out on spotify! follow him on instagram!). Loved grabbing some shots of him playing live and some portraits before the show. Musicians have always been a favorite of mine to photograph and I was stoked to work with him! 

london, UK

I was pretty sick for the duration of our London trip, which kinda sucked, but it was still incredible. Amelia and I still walked around everywhere, got REALLY lost once, got separated from each other another time but somehow we made it and somehow it was still beautiful. I think our favorite parts were the free hotel breakfast and the Borough Market. :) 

Kayla Whitehead

Getting up at 5am for a shoot? ain't so bad when the light (and the model, like, look at Kayla) is this pretty. The Falls of the Ohio has been my favorite spot to shoot here in Louisville lately, even though I suppose it's technically in Indiana. Kayla, thanks for waking up early and for modeling -- I had a blast! 

pro photo tip: always end photoshoots with coffee (Atlantic No. 5? yes please) 

scotland, UK

(some words I wrote and some pics I took of my bestie while we were in Scotland earlier this year -- one of the most stunning places I've been yet!) 

 

take time for yourself 

time to think; breathe 

not just gasping through this life 

life is an echo 

a mere breeze 

yet life is a torrent of waves,

all at once. 

take time to savor 

food that nourishes and builds

take time to write 

your words matter 

take time to learn 

(there's always something)

take time 

don't let time take you 

"I've just been crazy busy!" 

take time, fill up 

so you can fill others 

and love harder 

take time
