a wishlist on wednesday

since i've been sick lately i haven't felt like shooting any new pictures, but what i have felt like doing is shopping. as of late i've been shopping at free people.....a lot. here's a few things that i love (but can't really afford at the moment).

1. i'm not sure what it is about this bag (maybe the fringe), but i love it. you can find it here

2. i know we're still in the middle of summer, but i'm longing for a cozy sweater. you can find this one here

3. i love, love, love these much that i bought the last pair of them in black. you can find them here 

4. this kimono/poncho has the prettiest pattern. you can find it here

this is just a little bit of the stuff that's on my wishlist (we don't have time to go into all of it). also, check out the free people blog . it's full of lovely outfit inspiration, decorating ideas, diy crafts, and recipes.

i'm hoping to be feeling better tonight, so i should hopefully get some new pictures taken for tomorrow. sorry it's been so quiet.

*both people in the photo are me (still haven't found someone else to work with)

The conjuring

Last night my friend and I went to see the conjuring. I still haven't decided which is more frightening, the movie or the amount of popcorn I consumed. I'm kind of leaning towards popcorn consumption. Aside from being in a room full of really jumpy, screamy people, the movie was pretty good.  It also has sparked my interest in being a demonologist (not sure if this is a viable career option, but would still be interesting to study). 
I'm planning on actually shooting new stuff tonight so I should have it posted tomorrow. 


*also, this....

sinking slowly

i'm sinking slowly...

so hurry, hold me


*first round of underwater photos! it was hard to coordinate with a model underwater. since i never work with other people this was a little bit of a challenge, but i'm definitely planning on shooting more with some different poses. i might also try to incorporate some props next time.

beauty spilled

she let the beauty that was growing inside here flow through open veins...

...and let it bleed into the world.



*more pictures based on the edvard munch quote.

*this is my dress from prom junior year. i'm glad i saved it since it seems to come in handy every once in awhile.

*i'm spending my sunday at my parents' house with my sister. we're swimming and taking pictures (which will hopefully be posted tomorrow).

bird's nest

this is place for all of the little things that were thought to be lost over time.



*i found this bird's nest while i was visiting my parents' weekend house over the holiday. i need to find a bell jar to keep it safe (mainly to keep it protected from the cat). i have lots of new ideas that i can't wait to work on (i really need it not to rain for about a week since most of them are outside). also, thank you to the provider of the teeth. i love taking pictures with them as props.

*the seinfeld marathon continues with elaine's reaction to the english patient: click

cling to me

at night, when all of the memories come flooding back and cling to you for dear life....that's where i'll wait for you.



* so it rained (and is still raining), which means that my underwater photos are delayed until the water warms back up. in the meantime i have other things to share. i made this one out of boredom while watching endless episodes of seinfeld (you're killing independent george!). i'm also working on redecorating one of the rooms in my apartment to include a small studio space, so possibly no more bedroom pictures. also, i've moved back into taking pictures based on dreams since i've been sleeping more

*a george divided against itself cannot stand ok, i suppose i should admit, i love seinfeld. i've been watching it with my parents since i was 2. it's probably the only thing i'm a "fangirl" of (did i use that in the right context?)

forgotten nursery rhymes

my mother, she butchered me

my father, he ate me

my sister, little anne-marie,
she gathered up the bones of me,

and tied them in a silken cloth
to lay under the juniper tree.

tweet, tweet, what a pretty bird i am.



*as you can tell, i watched moth diaries again. as much as i dislike teenage vampires, i love this movie. it's just so.....pretty.

*in other news, i am taking my first underwater pictures this weekend. my sister has graciously offered to be my model. i really hope they turn out. either way it should be fun and i get to go swimming.

*my dress is from lip service....about 10 years ago

holiday getaway

I'm back from holiday! I stayed with my family at our ranch house that is out in the middle of nowhere. it was pretty fun. i got to visit with my cousins and we ate lots of wonderful food. we also set off a few fireworks (not too many since the baby didn't really like them). overall, it was a fairly enjoyable relaxing weekend. however, i am not quite ready to get back into my work schedule.

landscape pictures aren't really my strong point, but i wanted to share some anyway.

i have some new stuff to post as well as an underwater shoot to plan out so i'm going to be very busy this week.

a mirror's reflection

shadows cannot see themselves in the mirror of the sun.
-evita peron



*i am officially on holiday! it feels so great to take a break and relax. i plan on taking lots of pictures over the long weekend and enjoying time with my family.

*a few notes about this picture: 1. the hair is not how i would have liked it to turn out. i didn't anticipate it being that dark and it almost seems like a veil rather than hair, but oh well. 2. i found this lovely quote (yes, i subscribe to one of those "quote of the day" email things) and thought it would be fun to base a photo around it. 3. i am actually rather pleased with how the fabric layered on top of itself. i really like all of the texture that it adds.

*my dress is from free people (and it will be making an appearance as my sister's "wedding dress" in some upcoming photos)

something beautiful shared

someone on deviantart shared this video with me and it was too beautiful not to pass on.



*i hope everyone is enjoying their day. the weather here is finally tolerable enough to be outside. today feels like thursday for me since i only have 1/2 day of work tomorrow and then am off for a long weekend. i hope to get a few new things shot tonight to add to my ever growing pile of things that need to be posted.
