a hodgepodge of notes


1. I am back from my camping adventure! I returned Sunday afternoon, and have been wiped out since. I have lots of pictures and a video montage coming soon. :) Also, thank you to all the lovely guest posters!

2. Back from one trip and off on another. Tomorrow I leave for yet another camping trip, this time in a cabin, with my dad and brother. I don't have any guest posters lined up for you, as I just recently found out about this trip, but five days isn't so long - right? I mean, I've gone a lot longer without posting. ;)

3. I shot my first senior portraits yesterday! Above are a few previews of the lovely (twin) subjects. You can expect a full post soon!

4. I know you have all been waiting anxiously for the winner of the Kinfolk Mag giveaway (maybe you already saw it announced on the giveaway widget itself), so here she is: congratulations to Madison RdL - you won the Kinfolk Mag giveaway! Thanks so much to all that entered. While the giveaway was still in action, I passed ONE HUNDRED FOLLOWERS! What!? You guys are amazing. :) 

5. Last but not least, I guest posted over here today!
