Hey Stranger~ I’ve been traveling a lot. I’ve been exploring, thinking, and brainstorming. I have been taking photos, but not as much. Mostly, I am living in these moments…learning and excited to explore new things. Photography is always going to be my love, but I am giving myself permission to follow my excitement and do what […]
Creative Weirdos: Meagan Mullins
We are the weirdos. Creatives and artists have for a long-time been associated with the strange, the weird, and the uniquely different. When I was younger, weird was used as a slur, something to make you feel badly about not being like the rest of them. I always found being weird as a badge of […]
Your tribe is out there.
As a photographer, for the longest time I thought I had to fit into a certain box in order to “make it.” There was a prescribed recipe for “success” as a photographer, and I felt frustrated by the limitations. I even took a year break from photography, and at the end I looked back on […]
Ode to Overcast
Overcast, you are given such a bad rep! Endless people rushing to pick the sunniest day- The brightest day. Little do they know what you can give. Little do they know that you hold the key to beautiful couple photos and beauty magazine level selfies. No squinty eyes, No blown out highlights, just a wonderful, […]

The Starving Artist Persona is Flawed
Somewhere along the line, when we were growing up, we were told that only tortured souls made good artists. We were told that our art is not as great as those of artists that have fallen down the spiral of alcoholism due to their passion. The artist that refuses to paint anything because he’ll never create […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
