The natural world via a macro lens. It is so beautiful!!! The first few images are soon-to-be tadpoles. Frog eggs! A small community of frogs have claimed our pond home, and I’ll be able to watch and photograph them as they grow. Pretty awesome. And I don’t know if anyone has ever seen a baby frog, but they are freakin’ adorable. The next few images are of burning incense. Sandalwood. Each new line of smoke has its own unique twists and turns. Kind of mesmerizing. The rest of the images are other unique and beautiful bits of nature. Up close, and personal.
I had such a great time Downtown with Lindsay and Jeff, and for an early Spring engagement session, we really had beautiful weather. Jeff is a big Pens fan, so we started the day at Consol Energy Center for some fun photos. We then ventured over to the North Side for a stroll in the park and so their pup could join in! It was an awesome day, and this is an awesome couple.
My wonderful boyfriend gets dragged into these things. Although I know that he does not mind, we are both lovers of art and playing with different concepts. I don’t typically use artificial light, so last night we played with my Speedlite. It was successful! and freezing outside.
I’ve been doing a lot of personal projects to build my portfolio recently. It’s been a long and exciting process, and there is still more fun to come. I’m incredibly proud of my work thus far, and I’m happy to announce the new website I built displaying it. Venturing more into this avenue of photography is an thrilling transition, and a little change is good

It’s 5:30pm and I literally have not been outside yet. Haven’t even smelled the air. What the heck, Loren? I walked upstairs to my room a bit ago and the sunlight coming in was so beautiful. It put a huge smile on my face as it bounced off of my terracotta colored walls. I often grab my camera during this time of the day to snap some photos. So, if I was going to update my self-portrait, I might as well do it on a day like today, in this sublime environment. So I did, and the sun on my face felt great.
Finally, after I hit this “publish” button, I’m goin’ outside.
Welcome to the inauguration of Craft Day. A day sure to be far and few between, but always fulfilling. Today I made Cupid’s bag of arrows for an upcoming newborn session. And guess what? it came out darn cute. Here’s what some paper, a toilet paper roll and an old shirt can get you. Taa daaaa!
