Stars & Snowflakes

Hello, my friends! Today I have a somewhat incongruous collection of photos for you, hehe. I did a little more star photography the other night, and also got some macro snowflake pictures on one of our many recent snows! Instead of making two tiny posts, I decided to smush the photoshoots together for your enjoyment. […]

Hidden Treasures & Airplane Skies {a Golden Hour Walk}

Hello, my friends! I have more golden hour pictures for you! While on a walk the other evening, I got in that photographing mood where I try and make pretty pictures out of the most random or unphotogenic things.

20+ Unique & Thoughtful Gift Ideas

Hello, dears! By this point you’ve probably seen a gazillion gift guides so no, this isn’t a very original post idea. BUT, this one is a bit different.

Light & Shadow {Experiments in Indoor Photography}

Over the past week or so, I’ve been finding interesting patterns of light and shadow around […]

Brown & Red {An Easter Short Story}

Hello, dears! Happy Good Friday! This is the weirdest Easter of my life, so today I have for you a strange sort of Easter story that doesn’t seem very Easter-ish at first – but it gets there, trust me! I wrote this after it struck me the other day how gross but how powerful it […]
