Count you blessings.


Wow, it's surely been a while since I have posted anything.  I wanted to break back into writing regular posts because Melissa- my lovely sister in law- mentioned that she misses my blog.  Can you believe it?  That's awesome.  I also want to make sure I am keeping all of my media platforms up to date since I am now applying for different post-graduation jobs and careers.

(Careers.  So exciting.  So nerve wracking.)

I wanted to share a few pictures that I've snapped recently that I just love.  Some with my camera but most with my phone!  I love having it right in my back pocket. 

 My cousin Kristi married her dream man a few weekends ago, and I was honored to snap some pictures of the happy couple.  This is one of my favorites- and I am so glad that the bride let me convince her to walk up towards the Adena Mansion to snap a few quick pictures.  Also thanks to my photographers assistants- AKA my Mom and Sister.  They kept right up with me and helped me move the bench and fluff the brides dress.  Rockstars.

 Kristi has a dessert bar at her reception!                    We made smores with T and Mel recently-
                                                                                                    such a great night!

 I love this one except we're missing our other brother!  I recently spent some time with Lindsey in the field behind our Grandparents house and we experienced "the violet hour' together- and now she and several other members of my family are in love with that fantastic hour where dusk meets dark.  It's GREAT for pictures.  Soft natural lighting always is.
 My friend and mentor Martin left Ohio State recently to move on to the next chapter in his life.  I was happy to spend some time with him on a Saturday morning.  We visited the Clintonville farmers market and I picked up some creamed honey.  It is SO good in oatmeal!  I've made it my breakfast for 2 weeks running now. 

 Being on campus with such a small percentage of the OSU population is eerie at times, but I also enjoy exploring and capturing images without a hundred million students always in the background.  Campus is beautiful that's all there is to it.

As far as other things so- both my class and my internship are ramping up to make me exceptionally busy and I am excited and nervous for what is to come within the next 30 days of my life.  I'm following my Mom's advice and just handing one thing at a time.  I can do it.  I have such a great support system.  I'd count my blessings but that would take away from the time I have to enjoy them.
