My Favorite Books of 2018

My favorite kind of morning is spent waking up slowly, throwing on a cozy sweater, and reading a good book as a sip my coffee and eat my breakfast. It’s just the best. Nothing beats it. I made a goal last January to read 20 books in a year, and I’m proud to say I reached that goal! YAY!

5 Things I Wish I Would've Known When I Started Photography

I got my first DSLR camera about eight years ago, and I was so eager to jump right into all things photography! I bought books, watched YouTube videos, and asking all my friends and family to model for me so I could get better. Little by little, I improved enough to the point where people started asking me to take their photos. That little hobby of mine has developed into a full-fledged business that I hope to take full-time after I graduate from college.

4 Things I Wish I Would’ve Known About Being an Introverted Photographer (+ Tips to Make It Work for You!)

I’m not gonna lie— there were times in high school where I thought there was no way I’d ever be able to make it as a wedding & portrait photographer because of how introverted I am.

The Caroline Logan Workshop Recap

One day I was scrolling through Instagram when one of Caroline Logan’s photos popped up in my feed. I’ve been following Caroline’s work for awhile now and admire her beautiful work and the way she runs her business so much. I decided to look on her website to see if she had any sort of business mentoring available, and in the process of doing that, I came across her workshop! As I skimmed through the information about it and saw there were still spots available, I immediately called my parents to make sure they were cool with it if I skipped a couple days of school to go. My parents, being the incredible people they are, were totally on board and encouraged me to sign up right away!

What to Wear for Your Senior Portrait Session

I don’t know about you, but picking out the perfect outfit to wear for a special occasion stresses the heck out of me! I’m totally fine picking out an outfit to wear to class, chapter meetings, or church, but choosing something to wear to a friend’s wedding or to formal is a whole other thing. And if you’re anything like me, picking out my outfits for my senior pictures was one of those stressful moments.

How to Create a Cohesive Instagram Feed

I wanted to tackle the whole cohesive Instagram feed because it's something that has been SUCH a struggle for me and one that I just recently felt like I’ve sorta gotten a handle on (and I've by no means reached the level of cohesiveness I desire for my feed)! I used to think that editing everything using the same settings or preset was enough to make my feed look cohesive, but I just kept coming away disappointed. There's actually a whole lot more that goes into it!

How to Edit Photos on Your iPhone + A Free Preset!

I'll be the first to admit that I rarely carry my DSLR camera around with me these days. It's pretty bulky and heavy, and I just don't feel like making my arms do all that extra work. As someone who tends to opt for my iPhone camera for everyday life, and someone who runs multiple Instagram accounts (my own, my dog's, my sorority's, etc.), being able to edit my photos easily on my phone is a must.
