It’s 3 pm. When you look out the window it looks like its midnight. It’s pouring rain outside. I love rain and the cozy feeling that in brings. This was shot in the middle of some sort of heat wave or something!

I’m pretty stoked that I have beautiful friends! Beautiful inside and out! Kimi and I got together this summer to shoot some stuff for her to send off, and keep for portfolio purposes. Isn’t she a stunner?

I know it looks like she was having just the best time ever.. but BOY was it ever hot in that room. Pushing 30 degrees, no air flow or air conditioning. Troopers, thats what we were. Troopers. Here’s to the last weekend of summer before classes start again!

I absolutely, with all my heart, love everything about these pictures. This is just a small taste of the full shoot! I’m in love. I feel like Boudoir is something I’ll do forever. It’s so special to give something to your almost husband that for his eyes only. Can’t wait to here how this guy reacts to these pictures.

I’m in love with love.

I’ve been reading this book called The Element by a man named Ken Robinson. He has a Ph. D. so, everything must be legit. He writes a lot about passion and finding what makes you feel that you are fully in your element. He describes the element to be the meeting point between natural aptitude and personal passion. Wait what? BIG WORDS.. ok not that big, but its a jam packed sentence to take in and process.

Anyway, I don’t want to sit here and write an essay about the book I’ve just read. This is a blog, not an english paper. But! I do want to share what i’ve been thinking about. Im 25, and I think I know when I feel like I’m in my element. I wont share that quit yet, I mean, sheesh! This whole strangers reading my thoughts things is still new to me. We’re not that far into our relationship yet. It will happen though! In time, In time.

I think what I’m trying to get at is that we’re all so STUCK! SNAP OUT OF IT PEOPLE! If you love to sing, then sing! If you love to draw then draw! if you love math, then do math! Ya? We can do it. We’re our own worst enemy.

Im always the first one to tell myself no. So this time I’m just going to say yes. I took these pictures in the summer. Posting these pictures, is a big step. I’m just afraid people with judge me and my amaturish (is that a word? .. it is now) ways. I want to take pictures, and pictures I will take!

I hope that you know when your in your element, and if not, that you take some steps towards finding it, or making it more of a priority in your life.
