Pretty Thoughts

Stephanie wanted me to try and make these photos more brighter and elegant, something a little different from my normal edits. Although it's stepping outside of my comfort zone, I definitely had a great time trying something different. Like I said before, it's a good feeling to try new things. So what I ended up doing was, I edited the first three photos with a vignette effect to them and the rest with another preset I've never used before just to show how amazing it is that a simple edit can change a photo completely.

Deep Dreamer

I stand at a distance
watching her as she sits alone,
staring off into the water as it rolls back and forth.
She holds tight onto her chest,
breathing slowly as if she cannot contain the air.    


Her body stands,
walks towards the edge to see what is beneath her.
From where I am I can only see
the pain she holds while she contemplates.
Thinking slowly of what decisions have brought her here.


Minutes pass as she stands with her feet clenched,
dirt between her toes.
Mascara running down her cheeks
while a light wind brushes against her skin.
Only for her to fall.


Fall deeply into what she has longed for
which is complete darkness.
For she has fallen already,
leaving her lost in a world she no longer knows.

A world she already has forgotten.

I normally don't post my poems or writings but I thought I should start after I was going over some of my archives in my google drive. Not many people know that I love writing because it's more of a passion, something I enjoy doing for myself.

This poem was written as a dream metaphor. I wrote it as if I was in a deep sleep and while I'm dreaming I see myself. I can only stand from a distance and I see myself falling - falling into a deep sleep but also seeing myself dying from the world.

I tried to write it in a sense of seeing yourself outside of ones body, seeing who you are from another point of view and seeing the pain one may encounter that others might not understand or can only see from a far.

It's difficult to express how I felt or how I envisioned my thoughts as I wrote this but I'm definitely trying to work on that. I hope I can add these pieces into my posts to share with y'all and that you enjoy them just as much as I do.

Thank you for always supporting me throughout all of this, I couldn't be more thankful to the ones who love and motivate me <3

Luna Love

For a long time I've hated my body after I had Kylee. I have stretch marks that fall across the bottom half of my belly and parts of my body just aren't the same anymore. Although it isn't perfect, I've come to love myself more than ever now. I appreciate myself and that's a lot coming from Negative Nancy.

I originally thought about this photoshoot for someone else to wear lace and to frolic through the woods but as I spoke about this idea to Boogie, he thought it would be great for me to be that person while he takes the photos. I hesitated at first because of my insecurities but as he reminded me of how beautiful I am, I thought why not. Why not flaunt my imperfections because truthfully, no one is perfect and as cliché as that sounds, it's the absolute truth. So here's to the many perfect imperfections that we all hold!



A big thank you to my love for taking these photos of me. Truthfully it amazes me how talented you are musically and visually. I appreciate that you want to learn about what I love to do and to be involved with my whole world of photography. I couldn't be more thankful for the support you give me. Can't wait to do more shoots and have my ideas come alive with you.

Pool Side Fun

Luckily for Stephanie and I, we have a pool at our loft. This was our first time visiting it together since our schedules are so opposite. I love when we get the chance to spend time together. Hopefully with the summer here, we'll be able to capture more photos and have more fun!

Mount Monadnock

Probably the most difficult thing I've ever done in my life is pushing myself up this mountain but luckily for me, Boogie and I laughed and made jokes the entire time to make it all better. The moment we got to the top is when we realized how perfect it was up there and how much it was all worth it even though I wanted to punch every rock I had to climb. Officially checking off climbing a mountain off my bucket list!


All of these photos were taken on our iPhone 6 cellphones!

Love and bunnies,
