I have so many pictures to post:
both styled shoots with Kara
my trips back home to Chicago
and a mini shoot with my little sister Gracie!
Clearly I need to get my head on straight and be more productive. I think it's because my work desk, for the most part, is my bed. It's hard to be in a "ok hannah buckle down and churn this work out" mindset when the bed lends itself so nicely to a "ooo lets lay back and be cozy and surf the internet for cute things& then maybe we'll close our eyes and rest a bit" mindset. Wouldn't ya know it- those are two VERY different ways of working.
And I have so many non photo related things to share also. My favorite thing that has been happening recently is a reconnection with an old and very dear friend. Miss Kamarie Baergan. She and I have known eachother since we were young& impressionable high school freshman and used to celebrate our birthdays together since they are but a day apart. (One of my fondest memories is shoving cake in each others faces at our "super cool" 16th birthday- & for some reason I recall us wearing mens ties for the occasion?) Through the course of life and what have you, we grew distant as people do when they grow up. But the exciting thing is that over the past few months we have reconnected wonderfully. She is a wonderful artist& such a special person. I am just so thrilled to have her back in my life. We started a little thing we like to call Artmail- it's like email and snail mail only better. We make fun little art things and just mail them back and forth(as the name would lead you to assume). She lives in Nashville creating wonderful things and drinking lots of warm beverages and just leading a very cute life. It's so amazing when someone is brought back into your life just as you were needing them and didn't even know it. She has been a huge inspiration for me creatively just precisely when I was in need. (check out her website&bicycle blog- too cute!)
I should probably get back to editing/getting pics ready to post- here is one of my favorites from Steph&Abhi's engagement session in San Francisco!
Here is one of Gracie that I just love:
Lots more to come I promise, Ill try to do a few photo posts this week!
