Liebster Award

I just had a friend nominate me for this award and it feels great! She is one who has tried pushing me to do more fashion in my blog and I am loving it. I also looked up the correct meaning of this award and it ties back to the German word Liebster which means dearest or beloved. The blogger who gives the award associates the nominated site with these qualities. So shthanks Meg @Thepolishedmonkey!!!

So what you have to do is answer 11 questions, then I nominate 11 blogs who have less than 200 followers and then I ask them 11 questions.


1. If you could have 3 wishes granted, what would they be? To be 5'9", save all the kittens in the world, and to have an endless supply of raspberries.
2. You wouldn’t be caught dead, where? I'm sorry, but I wouldn't be caught dead in Hollister.
3. If you could have dinner with any three people from any time, fictional or non-fictional, who would they be and why? Adam Lavigne for obvious reasons, Miroslava- my style icon, and Emma Stone because she is amazing.
4. What's your favorite childhood memory? Closing my brothers mouth on camera so I could sing and not him.  Attention hog at age 7.
5. Would you rather be smart and ugly or dumb and beautiful? How about smart and ugly with beautiful clothes. But only if my friends were smart and ugly with me :)
6. What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod? Recently, its been "Yo Mama" by Peggy Sue.
7. What is your favorite form of exercise? Lifting my coffee cup 
8. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be? I'll agree with Forever21 and say I'd love to be forever 21.
9. Which celebrity do you get mistaken for? Apparently it's every girl with big eyes and dark hair. Mostly Rachel Weinsz and Penelope Cruz. But more like if they had a baby.
10. When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time? I usually either play guitar or paint my nails if Im literally limited to 30 minutes.
11. How now brown cow? What do you call a chicken and a cow laying in the mud together? Brownchickenbrowncow.

Now my questions for you!!

1. Who is your style icon?
2. Who is your biggest celebrity crush?
3. Favorite Band?
4. What is your go to item in your closet?
5. What is a physical characteristic you like about yourself?
6. If your house caught fire, what would be the first object you would grab and why?
7. Sepia or Black and White?
8. Three descriptive words that describe your style/art?
9. What is your Favorite store?
10. You wouldn't be caught dead wearing, what?

Fa Fa Fa Fashion...

So I've been getting a lot of people asking me to post some more fashion stuff and what I'm wearing. I've decided to start putting up a few shots of me being awkward in some day to day outfits to please you. I am very aware my style is not the norm. I don't even think it has a name.

Anyways, I love love love consignment stores! So here are some finds I got from local consignment stores like NameDroppers and Uptown Cheapskates.


Bam.

NixPix

This woman is amazing. She can pretty much create anything delicious and make it look beautiful. She specializes in dessert bars and even did the decor for it. Her company name is even cute. ... Nixpix! You can visit her website here: http://www.nixpixpastries.com/. Here are a few shots I was able to get at the wedding she last baked.

Melissa and Braley-Engagements

I had the opportunity to shoot two of my good friends whom I have known since elementary years and their engagements!! YAY! It's always such an honor when a friend decides to use me as their photographer, but especially two whom I've known since we were wee lads.

Now, we had quite a difficult time with these engagements....unfortunately. Melissa decided she wanted some more natural photos up in the mountains during the fall because of all the pretty colors. We decided to head up Little Cottonwood Canyon in Utah because of the gorgeous scenery. On the drive up there I was speeding....I didn't realize how fast I was actually going because of how distracted I was trying to find the perfect location. Well, I got caught "ridin dirty" as they say. The speed limit was 25 and I was going 46. Oops. The nice cop decided to give me a ticket for only 9 over. THANK GOD. Plus it was my first REAL ticket. We got some great shots in the fall and here are those:) Enjoy.

FALL







We had a few other "complications" (cough cough) and decided it would be pretty amazing if we got some winter photos. You don't see many winter engagements and thats shame because they can turn out so beautiful and romantic. Any we were lucky enough to get two seasons in a months time!

Braidy Rose- Senior Portraits

I spent so much time trying to decide the perfect look for my little sister and her Senior Portraits! I am now happy to announce that they are finished!! I hate the way Facebook makes my photos look so I decided to start a blog with some of the pictures that didn't quite get captured through facebook.
