where did you use your fog machine? I'm thinking...
I used it in my basement. It certainly could be mistaken for real fire but it disappears pretty quickly and doesnt smell like smoke. The smoke doesn’t travel very well so if you close it in a back room away from other apartments I wouldn’t worry. I’m here to help!
OMG--I forgot about the snow!!! That's terrible!!...
We’re all fine :) Just power lines and trees down everywhere. It’s funny though we got 5 inches 3 days ago and today it was 50 degrees and the snow was melting. That’s New England for you. I just hope the power comes back on soon. My emails are piling up and I can’t get any work done. I’m here to help!
Going on day 3 of no power.
Halloween! You're dressing up as ____?
They canceled halloween in my town. We still are without power and considered a state of emergency. I’m here to help!
Have you received any negative feedback about your...
To be honest no one has said anything negative well, except one person at work that said nudes were disgusting. But I feel staying confident in my work and what i’m trying to accomplish shows them that i’m going to do what I do and not care what they say. But i’m willing to all constructive criticism. Whether or not I act on it is my choice :) I’m here to help!
what was the highlight of your week? =)
I got a really fantastic offer to sell my prints through a huge site. I’m hoping it’s finally the key to quit my job. I’m here to help!

Hi honey <3 I don’t do anything when I have my photos printed. You might need to calibrate your monitor to make sure it’s on the same page as wherever you are printing. I’m here to help!

I used a fog machine :) I’m here to help!

“I wonder why I don’t go to bed and go to sleep. But then it would be tomorrow, so I decide that no matter how tired, no matter how incoherent I am, I can skip on hour more of sleep and live.” - Sylvia Plath I remember highlighting this when I read her journals. Everyone at work always tells me how exhausted I look. How they can text me at all hours of the night and I’m...
What advice would you give to someone who is...
Oh goodness I have such a hard time with this. I was and still am this way. I have the most terrible time directing people. But it gets easier. I’ve found, going in to the shoot with a clear and concise picture in your head really helps. If you already have a vision for the shoot you are more apt to be able to direct it. If I go in with no vision, then I just get all mixed up and shy. ...

Exciting things are going to be happening in December! I just licensed my prints for sale on a pretty huge website (like 2 million views a month huge.) Hopefully that will be a step in getting the hell out of my job.

Something that makes my blood boil:
whitneyjustesen: thesebeautifulminds: When clients EDIT MY PICTURES. That is so out of line to me. That’s like me buying a painting from some artist and oh, adding a little paint and my own touches to it. If you didn’t like my editing to begin with, then why did you hire me……ugh. YES this is one of my worst pet peeves. I had a girl whose roommate photos I took, edited, and gave to her, and...

Pale all the way :D I would love to look like Gemma Ward or Lily Cole. I’m here to help!
hello! I'm not the person who asked that, but you...
No I primarily use color balance adjustment layers, selective color layers, and solid color layers with curves only on RGB to change the lightness or darkness. I don’t know how I came about this switch but overall it makes me feel happier about color palettes then when I was using curves. And I don’t end up using as layers. I don’t know if I’ve just progressed into a...

*fashion photography, hahaha sorry, 255 words are not enough ———————————- I’m not going to lie and say it’s the easiest profession to live off of but I’d imagine like anything else it’s a struggle. And sometimes, it probably will be horrible and stressful. I think that’s the price you pay for running...

It certainly feels great to know that someone liked my work enough to feature it on their blog or in their magazine. I’ve never gotten compensation or a job from it but it is free publicity! I’m here to help!

Date a girl who takes photographs.
lafilleimaginaire: Date a girl who takes photographs. Date a girl whose favorite sound is the click-click of the shutter as it closes and opens to capture a memory. Date a girl who sees the wonder in the simplest things. Date a girl who looks at the world and wonders how to put a little of herself in it. You might find her in the park, lost behind her lens, the world a blur around her as she...
