52 Instax

I just started this project and I’m already behind on posting about it. But don’t worry, I’m caught up in real life. And I also have a really cool instax photo album to put them all in! I’ll post more about that when it starts getting filled up.

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos


Yep, there are exotic animals about 1 mile from my house. Too bad it was too dark by the time I took this picture.

Apparently, I have this really cool habit of taking pictures at sunset, which for this camera means that part of it is dark. In person, it turns out alright but when I photograph it for my blog posts, it ends up looking like it has no detail. I took this picture a few weeks ago on one of the back roads by my house, I LOVED the sunset that night, so I took a drive.

Photobucket Pictures, Images and PhotosThis is easily one of my favorite photos that I have taken using this camera. I really like passenger seat rear view mirror shots with the sunset in the background. Are you noticing a trend?


Plant Life Update + Flower Power Review

I told you it was coming.

Which means I’m probably going to be repotting again soon. And I found out that I’m supposed to be using fertilizer more regularly, so we’ll see what happens.

Photobucket Pictures, Images and PhotosIt’s called a flower power and it helps me know how often to water, fertilize, put in the sun, etc. I chose a low-maintenance plant at first just to try it out and I’m totally loving it! Photobucket Pictures, Images and PhotosThis little guy just sends info to my phone and then it puts commands into my to-do list so that I know if it’s time to water or fertilize! This is going to come in handy next year when I am planting veggies! photo 6269058A-B721-45B0-A950-EDD6CA808506_zpszc99inrc.png The app shows your plant’s stats in real time, so you can see the water decreasing as the time from the last water increases. That way, you can anticipate a watering time even if you won’t be home a few days. The only downside is that the Bluetooth connection can only be made when you are within a certain range, which means that you cannot get updates on your plant when you aren’t at home. Even though this is a fairly new product, I would totally recommend it to the experienced planter and the novice and with new updates all the time, it just keeps getting better!

My Portfolio

Recently, my friend Emilia showed me this really awesome way to share my photography portfolio. I used a website called WiX.com and in a few easy steps, I had my brand new page up and running. There were a ton of different layouts to choose from, but I really wanted to keep it plain so that I could make my photography the focus and not have it too cluttered with other things!

Here are a couple of screen shots from the page!

Family Golf Tournament Photos

Every year, we have a family reunion golf tournament with my Mom’s side of the family. My uncle and I are in charge of taking photos-group, and individual driving and putting shots. In our “waiting time” we normally walk around and take photos of anything else that catches our interest. Here are some of the photos that I loved from yesterday.
