Taste of Dallas and Jeep

Taste of Dallas with Jeep

Happy Wednesday! I’m so excited to share my experience at the Taste of Dallas this past weekend! This post is done in partnership with Jeep, but all opinions are my own. Thanks for reading! // I’d be lying if I told you I’ve never had dreams of driving through the open desert in a Jeep Wrangler. Top down, hair flying, camera precariously strung cross-body, just cruising along. Sounds INCREDIBLE. I’m (of course) all for extremely…

Fall Travel Accessories – Jord Wood Watch

I recently received this beautiful little timepiece from Jord Watches in the mail and had to share, it’s just so pretty! This is the Frankie Ebony and Gold and it pairs beautifully with other dark and gold accessories. I’ll start by saying that I’ve never been a huge watch person. In the past I’ve gravitated more towards bracelets and rings instead of a watch. However, now that I’m traveling a bit more, I’ve found the need…

Instagram Travel Diary – Tulum

In case you missed it, a collection of all the images I posted while I was in Tulum + a few special ones I’ve never posted before! I decided this might be a fun way to recap the entirety of the trip start to finish. Enjoy and please let me know what you think of my Tulum travel diary! DAY 1: I arrived in Tulum and caught a taxi to the hotel from the bus station…

Affordable Travel Eyewear

I’ll be honest; before I received these Firmoo eyeglasses in the mail, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I’ve never ordered eyewear online before, and was a little bit hesitant about getting glasses I’ve never physically had on my face before. It’s hard enough choosing glasses in person, can you imagine never actually trying them on? That being said, I AM IMPRESSED. These images do not do them justice. They look great, they’re of sturdy quality,…

Twilight

Today I wanted to post some more photos from the shoot I did earlier in the month. Some were done using window light (my favorite!) and others a mix of natural and artificial light. I try to use natural light whenever possible because, in my opinion, it’s the most beautiful and the most real. It’s real in the sense that skin tones are true as are other colors. Another technique I like to implement is…

Elizabeth

Today I wanted to share some stills from a short I’m currently working on. The short, titled ‘Elizabeth’, acts as somewhat of a prequel to a longer short I will be shooting in late March/early April. The films revolve around two characters, Jack and Elizabeth. Elizabeth is a young prostitute desperate for money and desperate to get into a different line of work. Her daughter is sick and she is steps away from becoming homeless….

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you get to spend the day with loved ones, be they your boyfriend/girlfriend or family and friends that love you. Also, amid all the roses and chocolate and fancy dinners downtown try to appreciate that you have awesome people in your life that love and care about you. Today I wanted to share some photos from a session a couple of weeks ago. I experimented with lighting and I like…

Super Eggcited

Sometimes you do something for so long that you forget there’s a stopping point; a final goal. That’s how school has been for me. I’ve been studying for so long that somewhere along the line I became convinced I was going to be here forever. Now that graduation is close and almost certain, it’s extremely odd thinking about not being in school. It’s become such a large part of my life that doing anything else…

Espíritu

A ghost love story shot for a cinematography class. This was my first time using the Steadicam Merlin 2 for an actual short. I have to say that all the online reviews I read before purchasing the Merlin were right! Huge, huge learning curve. If you can get it right, though, so worth it. When correctly balanced it makes every shot smooth. Unfortunately, I still have quite a bit of practicing to do; as you…
