40/365 Lean Into It


I’m at the point in this 365 project where taking a pic each day is a little bothersome but I’m going to keep going. I’ve realized that I’m most happy with the project when I use my DSLR instead of my phone. It takes a lot of mental effort some days since I have to…

4/365 Thrift Shopping Saturday


Today I tried on almost 15 items and only managed to find one thing at the thrift store. However, it was a sweet find! When Brandon and I walked into the store, I saw this love lounge chair right away. So we took advantage and got a shot of me in the chair for today’s…

2/365 A Walk in the Park


Day two is here and so far, so good! It’s coooooooool outside. I stepped outside in a sweater to meet up with my photography mentee and had to run back inside and grab a jacket! That’s fall in Dallas for ya, one day it’s rainy, the next sunny and chilly, the next hot and muggy….

Starting from the bottom. . . Again


You know that moment when you think you have pretty decent skills in one area, only to be shown that you aren’t as skilled as you thought? Well friends, that is where I found myself last night. As mentioned in a previous post, I’m working with my brother to update my design portfolio. It has…

We Can Rebuild


I’ve tried to learn web languages starting with HTML time and time again but it never stuck. I would only get more confused and frustrated every time I attempted to learn something. But recently things have been clicking. My supervisor connected me with some learning resources online a few weeks ago. Since then, I’ve been…

Composition Exercise


For any artsy types out there, here’s an exercise for you. As a way to improve my skills, I’m rebuilding my fundamental skills and knowledge. To start, I did a composition/scale exercise with five random elements in Photoshop. Here are the results I got after 20 minutes. You may have to zoom out to see…
