+/- May 2015

+ I finished one year of daily blogging!!! I'm so proud of myself! 

+ This month I had some really fun solo dates. I saw Postmodern Jukebox at Lupos. They put on such an amazing show. A few weeks later I saw Bill Burr in Boston at the Wilbur Theater. I can see why people would hate the idea of going out alone but I loved it. I am definitely an outgoing introvert and I treasure my alone time.

+ I had a really successful Instagram workshop at Craftland. It's nice being able to teach people with the information I have to share.

+ The most exciting that happened this month is I got a new camera!!! I knew I needed to upgrade but it wasn't in my budget. Then as I was on the train going to Boston, I saw online that my friend was selling her Canon 6D. Without a moment's hesitation I knew I had to buy it. I had my first shoot with it yesterday and I am in love!

- I got sick again. Third time I had bronchitis since October. It was definitely a combination of having a five degree comfort level, the weather constantly changing, and overworking myself. I need to rest more and take better care of myself.

It's been an interesting month but I am excited for the summer to begin!

Not My Art // Bound 2Gether

Artist Zak Tebbal translated Kanye West's Bound 2 music video into a children's book and it's pretty adorable (and kind strange).

Photo Story // Free People in PVD

Last week Melanie, Olivia, and I got to check out the new Free People store in Providence Place Mall before it opened. I have to say, I felt pretty cool checking out the store before everyone else. It's nice to see better stores opening in the mall. After the preview, Melanie and I went to Prospect Park to shoot this look Free People PR sent her.

Photo Story // J Marcel SS2015 Lookbook

Last month I shot J Marcel's Spring/ Summer 2015 lookbook in East Greenwich. It was a cold and very windy day but my models, Amy Samaha and Laura Maia, pulled through and made it look any other beautiful day out on the beach. My girl Olivia Rodrigues was styling with her friend Jenna on hair and makeup. Here are some selected shots that made the lookbook along with some of my favorites from the shoot.
