DSC_1246 DSC_1250 DSC_1253 DSC_1241 DSC_1262 DSC_1255Self-photography was once something I thought I would never be able to do. I would read “About” pages on blog after blog, all about my favorite bloggers’ methods. I learned all about their cameras and tripods, lenses and remotes, some persuading boyfriends, husbands and friends, but I found so many that said they did it all themselves. It blew my mind. I’ve said it before, but my photos have dramatically improved since I started doing this and self-photography has become a real creative quest for me. Hitting that last magical hour before the sun sets, known as golden hour, can make even a simple, long black dress look pretty glowy and wonderful.

I just wrapped up a busy busy first week of school. It’s been a crazy week and I have a million things on my mind, but I’m off to play bridesmaid this weekend in my friend K.’s wedding on Orcas Island. I simply cannot wait to get there and see the sun setting on the water and and to celebrate two of my closest friends saying “I do.”
