photo challenge: catching up
September 21, 2015

One of my biggest pet peeves is being late 😉 and here I am… updating the photo challenge late as can be. I recently moved into a new place and the light here is spectacular. My apartment sits on the corner so I get light from two directions: south and west, thus shooting inside has […]

There’s something about old, crusty books that I love. At Calvary there’s a beautiful, old Bible that weighs as ton. I knew it would be the perfect subject for today’s challenge. Old Bible pages are just the best. Don’t forget to play along: On Instagram under my handle @TheJadeiteShutterBlog, on Facebook at The Jadeite Shutter, […]

I finally took the plunge and purchased some liquid foundation. I feel like this is one of those rites of getting older 😉 I’ve been wearing Bare Minerals powder since I was a teen and have been quite happy with several of their products. We’ll see which I prefer: liquid or powder. Don’t forget to […]

She is my biggest fan, my largest emotional support, and my business encourager: she’s my mom.

This is the perfect time of year for roasting veggies. I love these cool nights and mornings. Lately I’ve been trying to amplify the amount of at-home and healthy eating I do. The summer is usually overly indulgent for me, and I know I’ll feel better when I get back to my normal healthy routine. […]

photo challenge: glass half full

Settings: ISO 640 • 50 mm 1/4 • 1/800 Often I think about how I should be more positive, optimistic, and easy going. The reality is: by nature I am a worrier, sometimes bitter, and more often than not, fearful. I don’t want to be this way, but it’s my default, my “natural woman” I […]

Hahahaha!!!! What if I told you that I posed with this book without even reading? That green drew me in 😉 All in the name of propping I suppose. In reality, I purchased this book years ago in college after studying Aristotle in one of my communications class. I have hung on to it every […]

Mara is one of my dearest friends. We met a few years ago at a party, but connected right before she had her sweet baby boy. We share many things in common: especially our love for photography. Mara is incredibly gifted and I have learned so very much from her. Those are the best kind […]
