Joe, Steph and Ernie

Joe and Steph asked me to take pictures of them and their adorable dog, Ernie. It was so much fun to run around with Ernie and to take pictures of the lovely couple : )

My wonderful cousin made me a logo and here it is! I love it! I have had it for a while but I wanted to put it on here : )

digging around

My friend needed some photos for a project she is starting and I came across this photograph. I took it while at a pumpkin patch in Bloomington, and I have come to really enjoy it.


Spending some time in Chicago during the summer : )

I was given the chance to take some headshots of the Lockport drama club and here are a few of them! I really don't do many photographs of people because I am not totally comfortable with it yet so I was excied to have this opprotinity : ) We did them on the stage at the school so I only had the red curtain for a background, but it ended up going pretty smoothly.

Figuring it out

Well, my last photography project took a lot more work and a lot more digging into myself than expected, so sorry for the delay in posting.

Starting this project I became very unhappy with what was happening, trying to use the studio to produce the images that I wanted. I ended up going back to my original setting of rooms in houses and apartments using the natural lighting from a wondow or the lighting that was already produced. This made the images have a lot more depth and space to fall into, therefore making myself much happier with the outcome. I enjoy pushing the boundries of photography and using the camera as a non representational tool, questioning the image as a photograph, painting or collage.

I have started to expand on my abstract series and I think it is going in an interesting direction. I haven't decided how I exactly feel about it yet, but I am enjoying all the experimenting that is going on.

everyday objects

This is a series of everyday objects that I have abstracted to make the mundane more interesting. I have posted some of these photographs before, but I wanted to put more of the series up. I may be extending this project and see what direction I might go in next, so I have been thinking about this group of work a lot. I always seem to go back to this series because it is the most exciting for me and have found a great admiration for abstract photography. This is something I find the most thrilling in photography. I am hoping this will maybe get me somewhere in the long run if I keep working at it,we will have to see. . .

So, my new years resolution is to update my blog every week. . .starting now!

This shoot is from a photo adventure I went on with my cousin Alyssa and our friend Nikita. The ones that I am putting up today are of Alyssa, and I am still working on the ones of Nikita. It was freezing out when we went hence the layers and fluffy hats, but we still had a good time! We have to go back when we aren't freezing our little butts off!
