    First Wedding of the Season!

    Very excited to be kicking off this wedding season with a beautiful and relaxed wedding with Dan Aguirre. For those of you who don’t know, Dan is a wonderful wedding photographer who I am shooting with this summer. As a second shooter to Dan, I photograph the groom getting ready and then fill out the day with shots that support and compliment Dan’s shots. For example, during the ceremony while Dan is focusing on the bride and groom, I am capturing reactions of everyone and getting overall shots of the entire space. Ashley and Antonio’s wedding a few weekends ago was the perfect wedding to open the season with. They were such…

    One Year and One Day Ago…

    My fellow graduates and I were celebrating the opening of our senior thesis show. The thesis show happens every year on the 11th floor in Tower, in The President’s Gallery. Each person gets about 3 feet of wall space where they can display their thesis work. The incredible aspect of the show is the variety and that the diversity spread evenly throughout the gallery creates a wonderful cohesive feel. I was also honored to have my photograph be the image used to advertise the show. Here’s a behind-the-scenes of the creation of that image.

    I Love Bags

    For those of you who don’t know me, I love bags. One of my favorite books growing up was Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse. The story is about a mouse named Lilly who brings in her favorite purple plastic purse full of fun things for show-and-tell. There are a few morals and lessons to be had but I was more focused on the purse and the stuff inside the purse. Since I started buying things, bags have always been a priority. I can probably say in my lifetime so far, I have bought a hundred bags. Only one or two however have actually stayed with me through the years because I…

    Boston Marathon

    Yesterday was Marathon Monday for the 2015 Boston Marathon. Every year, this event brings thousands of runners and spectators. This is the first time I ever acknowledged the race let alone watched it. Nick’s friend lives right on the route and graciously invited everyone over to watch. I figured we would be watching off the TV but it ended up being much better than that. They had set up a tent along the side of the route and we just made it to see the elite men go by. It was incredibly exhilarating and I really felt like a Bostonian. Once more people showed up, we began drinking and grilling.…

    Reuben!

    Yesterday, we officially adopted Reuben. He is a Holland (Mini) Lop and was born on January 21, 2015. Since Christmas, I have been working at a portrait studio in the Natick Mall called Portrait Simple. For Easter season, we bring in live bunnies for children and families to be photographed with. At the end of the season, they have to get adopted. We visited the studio when Reuben was first dropped off. He was adorable and I wanted him immediately. I decided though that it was better off I didn’t. A few months pass after working with him and he is still my favorite bunny. A family had decided to…

    Spontaneous Spring Getaway

    Spontaneous trips are sometimes the best kind of trips. From Thursday evening to mid-afternoon today, Nick and I were at Williamstown, MA, home to Williams College, Nick’s alma mater. This is the third or fourth time we’ve been and it’s becoming a place we both enjoy escaping to. Williamstown is a beautiful town and though I am sick and Nick had to work on a paper, we made the best of it. We hit up the local coffee shop, Tunnel City and ate at the surrounding restaurants. At around 10:30 last night, when Nick finished his paper, we went to get pizza at his favorite place when he was a…

    Freelancing

    Today at work I got a taste of what being a freelancer is like. Current state? Lying in bed feeling the weight of being an adult. I shouldn’t complain, I still can pay rent and feed myself but it sucks. It makes me wonder if I am cut out for freelance work. One of my worst qualities is the constant need to feel in control and to feel like I know what’s happening next. You know what freelance is good for, not ensuring those feelings. Here’s to midday naps and panda. Courtesy of Google Images “Cute Pandas”
