Greenhouse Photoshoot

Hello Friends!

I feel like I have been doing a lot of text-heavy blogs recently, so i’m changing up the pace. A while ago, I’d gotten in contact with a local photographer on a whim, looking to do a fun experimental photoshoot. I don’t always love the way that I look in photos, but working with photographers who really know their stuff can be incredibly fun and yield some great results. I find that it gives me a much needed confidence boost when I get pictures back that I actually like.

You can see more of Emilee’s amazing work over on her website; emileerosefilms.com

Emilee and I have done a couple of shoots together at this point, and with more planned for the future, and I cannot stress enough how important it is to have someone like Emilee in your life. Creatively, she is one of those people who inspires me endlessly. Her eye for photography blows me away, and he willingness to go out on a limb and try new things is amazing. Plus, she’s just so much fun to be around! I’ve worked with photographers in the past who made me feel extremely uncomfortable, and the difference in outcome is definitely tangible.

These photos are from our first shoot together at a greenhouse in Rochester. I can’t believe that it’s taken me so long to get around to finally posting these here on the blog, but better late than never! I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do, and perhaps find some inspiration of your own.

Until next time!

There is something about the new year that is so inspiring about a new year. A fresh start. A second chance (or third, or fourth…).

I know that there are some people who have completely lost faith in the ‘New Year’s Resolution’, but I want to encourage you to stay positive. So what if your new resolution only lasts until the end of January? That’s one month where you lived as a healthier/happier/more organized/stronger/smarter you! The important thing is not to give up if you have a tiny set back, but to get up and try again.
