We took a stroll on a fine Sunday afternoon. Hannah, my muse, and I took a quick pit stop at the East Side Coin laundry, as well as a local dive bar, Y-NOT II. I hand-picked a select few to show just for you. I hope you enjoy.

A Cool Project: Gone Rogue

DSC_0722.jpg

Thrift shopping is a go-to past time of mine. I really enjoy picking out the hidden treasures that may lie hidden beneath piles of all sorts of odds and ends.

I found a Cadet Kelly worthy army jacket (props to those of you who know that Hilary Duff reference, cinematic gold) in a thrift shop the other weekend. This jacket even has the old name written inside and everything, Gulliver. Fitting I think, I don’t know why. I picked it up and decided to shoot it together with a cute ensemble.

Meet my muse, Kelsey Garfoot. She has extensive experience in sweetness and also textile design. She is magic when creating crystal-embroidered items and body jewelry. You may remember her from a shoot I did this past summer with her and some of her friends! Feel free to scroll back a page or two to see that, called A Primitive Project. Enjoy our little collaboration, which I am sure will not be the last.

A Parisienne Project: Beau Fille

I knew Anne a lonngg time ago, from a shoot we were both booked on a few years back, or it may have been a fashion show, yikes, my memory escapes me. None the less, she is an absolute sweetheart and I am so grateful we’ve been able to stay friends for so long. Anne currently works and lives in Madison, W.I., and is employed at ShopBop.

She loves Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago is incredibly sweet, funny, as well as an avid Packer fan, which is always plus in my book. I enjoy her company immensely, and when we collabed for a fun little shoot, magical things happened. She also told me about this awesome company she repped in her first look. I can’t wait share shots with you below.

“All Aspects Apparel is an art and lifestyle brand based out of California. I know Matt, who is part of the design team and he also helps run their Instagram account. We went to school (MATC) together and have been homies ever since. He moved to Cali and has been living his dreams. (Super jealous of him haha! )

I like the All Aspects brand and their overall style. They have some awesome stuff out right now for fall and they have the best dad hats ever!”

A Chromatic Project: ‘Neon Gypsy’ x Hannah Hamilton

DSC_0676 (1)

I love catching up with little miss Hannah. I’ve known her for a while now and she is always up for any challenge I throw at her. We have worked together in the past and every time we collaborate we come up with shots that I love.

I have recently moved from the east side and I am now living more downtown and I am enjoying it so far. I’m exploring different parts of the city and finding some wonderful location spots for shooting.

One of the first locales I found happens to be right outside my building! I live around a good amount of old brick buildings, which really gives me a cool background to work with.

Hannah stood out so well, which created wonderful color and contrast.

For the rest of the shoot we went inside, ventured into my laundry room and roamed the hallways, probably disturbing my neighbors.

We had a nice chat and talked about life, laughing and relaxing. I felt inspired by her outfit that she arrived in: her mother’s old painting crew neck cut off sweatshirt.

It was so fabulous and grunge, so naturally I snapped a few more pictures.

Sweatpants: H&M

The Daily Thistle: Autumn Errands

This fall has been so beautiful as of late! Wisconsin has seen some gorgeous weather, idyllic scenery, and many autumn-inspired festivities.

I decided to run some errands while visiting my parents on my day off. I rendezvoused to one of my favorite places, The Elegant Farmer, a quaint little shop on the outskirts of Mukwonago. They have lots of coffee, hot cocoa, pancake mix and organic maple syrup, recipes, and delicious desserts, like their famous Apple Pies, cookies decorated to support the (6-0) football team, The Green Bay Packers, but my personal favorite are the banana and zucchini breads.

Pumpkins outside of Elegant Farmer!

Cute and tiny carts for shopping!

I also managed to squeeze in a quick shopping trip, of course. I drove a short 20 minutes south, soaking in this beautiful weather with the windows down and the music blaring, to this adorable consignment shop called ‘New To You’, in little town of Rochester to see if I could snag some last minute vintage fall gems.

It turns out, I was in luck! I managed to find some perfect accessories for fall. One of them being a handmade scarf from Scotland, so warm and cozy!

Enjoy the weather and go outside for some fresh air! Go Pack!

The Daily Thistle: Questions About Cameras

As a lot of you know I have been in love with photography for a few years now, and it has also become a big trend over the last few years. I have a Nikon D5200, it’s a little on the pricey end, photography can become an expensive hobby!

So, I have been receiving a lot of questions about my new camera, a Fujifilm Instant 60mm camera.

Photo Aug 09, 5 32 44 PM

This camera is so much fun, and to top it off, it’s only $60! I got the camera and the film at Walmart, because It’s a lot cheaper than other stores that sell these types of cameras. It’s also great for someone starting out that’s interested in photography.

DSC_0934

So that’s it! Lots of friends comment on how fun it is to play with, and it’s great when you’re hanging out with friends or even going to a beautiful summer party. I usually like to date the bottom of the photo as well. They make wonderful memories that you can keep forever!
