Favorite 15 of 2015

My adventures in 2015 took me to many, many unexpected places; from Oregon to Tennessee, from below freezing temperatures to overwhelming heat from a very large fire. I feel like the last year pushed me outside my comfort zone but the work I created as a result is some of my favorite work yet! (Note: the very large fire was a training exercise conducted by a local fire department.) 

In no particular order, the following are my favorite 15 images from 2015.

The above and below image count as one image... really, I had to have them both and couldn't cut another image to make exactly 15. So yes, technically there are 16 images.

nashville: a must see list

My mom and I visited Nashville, Tennessee for the first time a few weeks ago and from our 3 day visit we crammed so many top sites into our few days of adventure. We wanted to take full advantage of our time so we did more tours that wondering around the city, but we both claim we will be back some day for the 'walking around and see what we stumble upon' portion of our trip!

diy : photo booth

Today I am going to explain step-by-step how to build a photo booth from PVC pipe. Before building my photo booth I did a ton of Pinterest, DIY blog and online research but I still couldn't find any real  step-by-step guides or lists of supplies. However, I complied a few popular designs and reinforced them with my own structural ideas so it would stand up against The Great Oklahoma Wind. (I also used 4- 20 pound sand bags to weight it down.) he supply list is included after the diagrams and pictures.

deck the halls

'Tis the season to be very busy wrapping gifts and mailing cards. Somewhere between Christmas parties and Black Friday shopping I managed to Deck the Halls, or decorate the inside of my house, at least. It's the one time a year I am allowed as much glitter as I want and I go all out!

casanova

My husband and I love all our pets, but Casanova (Nova) is very dear to our hearts. He was our first dog together and he’s been our constant companion through thick and thin. Nova is a Boston Terrier. If you've ever known or owned one, you know they're a special breed. In many, many ways Nova is a classic Boston, but he's our Boston, our very unique Boston.

A wise person once told me I needed to start blogging. Well, a few wise people have told me I needed to start blogging. When I say “once” I mean within the last two months I have heard this idea come back to me multiple times by many people that I know care about my success. 

What do I care about? Taking photographs.
