Wild Woman

Wild Woman

Renee and I have been meaning to get together and take photos for a long time, but I actually first met Renee when I was in college. I was in Painting and she came in and introduced herself to the whole class. I didn’t get to interact with her much then, but I remember being drawn to her energy. We started following each other on Instagram and I fell in…

Baltimore Murals!

Baltimore Murals!

Baltimore is full of art and color! You may already be familiar with my work with Mary England, self-love extraordinaire, but driving around the city and taking photos with gorgeous wall paintings is super fun. The fun part is, you can have images taken of yourself and the entire mural or we can pick details of the mural and use that as backdrop! There is only limited bookings available for this…

Solo Travel to Ireland

Solo Travel to Ireland

I went to Ireland by myself and didn’t die! Traveling solo has been a goal of mine for some time now. It is the ultimate “I do whatever I want” and such a confidence booster. I finally got the chance when I traveled to Dublin, Ireland in early May. To be honest, I was nervous the last few days leading up to it and I got off the plane, caught…

How creating art helps you grieve.

How creating art helps you grieve.

This last week I lost a person that I spent three years with. We did break up and were not the best of friends after, but I always said that over time, we would be able to talk again. He died on April 20th at 9am. I have done a lot of grieving and gone through the being upset and crying and then angry again. I did do the normal…

Easy ways to waste less.

Easy ways to waste less.

The zero waste phenomenon has been extremely interesting to me lately. While I am not zero waste, I am currently working on limiting my footprint as much as I can. For awhile I felt bad for not starting sooner, but I realized that I did not fully understand the immensity of the problem and reducing waste seems like something that would be too much of pain to do or wouldn’t…

How to create performance art?

How to create performance art?

Performance art is one of my favorite genres of art. There is something so amazing about being able to not only express your idea in physical form, but to become the art piece.  Performance art, not to be confused with the performing arts, such as theater, is the use of one’s body to create art within a designated amount of time. I particularly love performance art because there is no other feeling like…

Art and Technology: Using the Creative Process to Heal.

Art and Technology: Using the Creative Process to Heal.

A few weeks ago, I got invited to go to an artist talk of a friend from college. The description of her project immediately caught my attention, where the summary mentioned using technology combined with meditation to create art.  Amazing right? What if it was feasible to draw without the use of your hands? Cynthia O’neill, really embodies what passion for a project is. Through her lecture at Open Works…

Everything Glitters: A Retrospective.

Everything Glitters: A Retrospective.

You might know by now that I was playing with glitter and confetti these last two months. I can tell you, my apartment will never be the same…and I am glad. Shooting the Glitter Me set was a blast. I love working with materials, and when I explore something, I go full out. I started with the idea that I would do simple looks as well as intense, all over…

What to do when you don’t have professional photography lights.

What to do when you don’t have professional photography lights.

If you are just getting into photography or have been around a long time, we all know by now that photography gear isn’t cheap. I remember when I was a freshman in college, my teacher reacted to the groans about how much archival paper would cost and said: “Welcome to the most expensive major on campus!” That’s the truth. However, the same teacher taught me how to be resourceful. Unless you…

A Valentines Day Gift for Those Who Feel Like They Are Bad at Giving Gifts

A Valentines Day Gift for Those Who Feel Like They Are Bad at Giving Gifts

I have always been someone who has been more into showing love through spending time with someone and acts of service. Having read about the different love languages has really deepened my understanding of myself and my relationships. It has also allowed me to better understand how to capture others and the love they have for each other. You can read more about the different love languages here. I love…
