Your centering your frame, setting your focus, the aperture, and shutter speed are perfect.

You poke your head up and you fight the urge to roll your eyes, you’ve…

Fan Friday: Nomi Leasure

I need to introduce you guys to the amazing blog of Nomi Leasure. (be careful her blog is not as clean as it used to be and I love that.) For the longest, I’d been following her blog by secret because I just couldn’t share this goodness.

ChristinexCarter | Chicago Alt Model Portrait Session

When Christine told me she was a major Disney fan, it wasn’t hard for me to believe. She definitely had the Disney doe eyes that’ll draw you in. I was more than excited about our location at the Osaka Gardens where the was a small stunning bridge, a beautiful small body of water, and a bird that just had to watch the whole shoot diligently from afar. She even got photo-bombed and trust me when I say that we were…

The second book in the trilogy is going to send you on an epic ride. The other reason is to prepare yourselves for the journey of a lifetime. Not just through the characters but through yourself, your life, and your conception therein. I realized that I couldn’t really…
