My 100 & Me [Week 05]

This week was all about black and white images…from just one session. Seriously, anyone who has tried to do a photo “challenge” consistently will know that it’s really tough to stay consistent. Building something like this into your routine takes time, and effort, and the knowledge to be…

My 100 & Me [Week 04]

Keeping up with a weekly photography challenge is HARD! When you work in front of a computer for most of the day, you’d think it would be easy to get out for a bit a couple of times a week.

My 100 & Me [Week 03]

This was the week of the deer. It seemed like everywhere I turned, there was another doe (or fawn) looking back at me. There was a family of five that was frequenting our yard last year and we’re happy to see that they are back again. They are nature’s lawnmowers. In other news, there was…

Westport Music Festival

MUSICwestport runs every year during the third weekend of August. Being our first summer in the area full time, this seemed like a no brainer to have to hit up. Finding out that Miss Emily and Kasador were playing made things even sweeter! Nothing like being able to pull up a piece of lawn and listen…
