  • Headed to @allyouwitness today and I can’t wait to get my outlook on photography changed forever. My entire career as a photographer has been shaped by this false idea that I need to post the most majestic and beautiful couple portraits everyday. And idea that what matters are the things that other people will like. But that idea is completely bonkers, and we we all need to get away from it as fast as possible. I’m ready to transform my style into a true documentary style this year, and @allyouwitness is my first active step towards doing so! I am not as active on here as I used to be, because photo life has been slow as balls, but I’m going to be signing off until Friday! I low key wish I could sign off forever, but some people might actually think I died if I did that 😂 So I’m not dead, I’m just getting knowledge dropped on me by some of the best people in the bizzzzz!

  • Yo- who here uses a GoPro for travel? Do you love it? Do you also have a travel camera? I’ve been thinking about investing in a lighter camera for travel reasons because momma’s back doesn’t have time to lug around my canon gear to Africa 🤦🏽‍♀️

  • Sometimes I workout, shower, and lay in bed for an hour because my body is exhausted. Anyone have this mentality after a workout or is it just me? 🙈

  • I can’t believe this day is here already. On this day, my niece Natalie is getting her pulmonary trunk replaced with a cadaver pulmonary trunk in hopes to induce further growth of her pulmonary arteries. She is 4 years old and this will be her 5th open heart surgery. Natalie was born with a rare form of tetralogy of fallot x pulmonary atresia x ventricular septal defect x backwards aorta x no pulmonary trunk. But thanks to modern medicine, she is still living, and today is just another day they have to spend making sure she can keep doing just that- living. My brother once told me that all of Natalie’s life thus far is so that she can experience as much of life as possible, because the unknown of how long she gets is always present in the back of his head. If we could all take a second today and truly experience something that makes us feel alive, that would be pretty neat. Give yourself a hug and be thankful you are here- because someone out there is really really glad you are. #1in100 #heartbaby #pulmonaryatresia #nationalheartmonth
