Nostalgia is a side effect of Spring

There is something about the advent of spring and summer that makes me inexplicably happy. Like all opportunities that I’ve had or am about to have come full circle and sit in front of me hoping for a few minutes to be admired. Almost exactly a year ago, I got into the BFA program. I remember feeling so relieved that I had finally gotten in. I remember a few days later running off to the mountains with my roommate Brooke to take some photos because we finally had time to do silly things.  I remember feeling so free, and so excited for the growth I knew it would inevitably provide. I also remember last summer to be one of the best summers of my life. It had a little bit of travel, romance, nature, the lake, and it had the ability to change a moments notice. I look back now at what an incredible year […]

Saturday i had an itch, a photo itch. I wanted to finish a roll on my Yashica (but i’m indecisive and only got 4 frames) and i had to do some stuff for my photo class. In those aspects i was kinda unproductive. But on my digital, i got some pretty nifty pictures. below you will see evidence that i live with one of the most beautiful woman ever created. This is Jenna. Everyone say hello to Jenna. Hi jennaaaaa. great thanks for that. anywho, we had a real good time and between me and Christina using her for a model this weekend, she’s a born natural. it probably helps that her face is so pretty… Jenna was one of my very first roommates in college. She is super fit, and super fantastic. she let me dress her up like a hippie and we had a real good time.

happy days are here and ahead!

 Once upon a Labor Day weekend, Christina and I had such a perfect time. We drove up to Park City to a cabin and met our ward! I am so happy with this ward, everyone seem so fun to be around and welcoming. I am just tickled with the inevitable friendships i am going to make this year. As you can see am super happy to have my own car! It’s nice to have that final push towards independence (even if it’s a hesitant step towards adulthood). Anyway we were just loving the colors, and the lighting we saw this weekend. We also shot a wedding in bountiful of a kid i went to high school with Adventures are fun. bring it on junior year. i’m ready. p.s. i need help naming my car! she’s got a little butt, and she’s easy to handle and park. she’s spunky and young […]

headband: cherry lane boutique // pearls&top: thrifted // belt:f21 // skirt: banana repulic // shoes: nordstrom  After two years of being in the same ward. and one full year of living together, it’s Allie’s and I last sunday together. Though i love her dearly i’m psyched to see/stalk her adventures in the future. We’re both quite excited about living the next couple months out of suitcases.  we ventured to a business park for these pictures, if i were ever a busisnesswoman i would never settle for anything less than working in jamestown square, thats the name of this little beauty. Everything about this place screams classy, well except for the us two ladies making animal noises and other strange grunts and screams to activate my audio-sensor-shutter thinggy. I downloaded this thing where instead of a timer, i can clap or yell and if it’s loud enough for my camera to […]
