From now on, call me Royal Blue

I consider myself a candid person, often I blurt out what I’m feeling without thinking of how I’ll appear — usually I come off as a total weirdo or a complete and utter dork. And that’s totally fine, usually. Introductions are weird and I end up rambling. Much like I’m doing now.

To be frank, I really don’t know what I’m doing with this blog, but I really wanted a place where I could share my photographic adventures and talk about them… so that maybe I can look back years from now and see that I really put myself out there and tried. That would be neat.

I’m really wary about calling myself a photographer, so I don’t. I have had very little (and I mean little) formal training. I’m hoping to, hopefully, someday in the near future get my BFA in Photo Media but being an adult and having grown up responsibilities makes that a little difficult. So, I do what I can when I can. I, especially, enjoy exploring Kansas’ ghost towns or any neat city. I’m like the modern day cross between Indiana Jones and Lara Croft, without the athletic prowess, whip, nor delightful accent (although, I do narrate my life in a British accent. so, maybe it kind of sort of counts).

I also love to do people’s make up and have quite an addiction to purchasing beauty products. So that’ll also find a place here. I’m sure of it.

I, suppose, this blog is my public diary and a way for me to push myself to do more creative projects because it’s what I love and I need that outlet. Listening to Cold War Kids really pushed me to start this adventure, I’ll end this with some lines from the song that really inspires me to get out there and shimmy shimmy ya.

From now on fly as high as I want
from now on I’ll show my weak spot
….I guess I’ve always been a bit of a fighter…
…from now on call me Royal Blue….

A new world


When you’re almost two, the world is still very new and every day has countless of new experiences. You’re excited and you want to run around and experience almost everything, except for sitting still for photographs for your mom and dad.

For this adventure we went to Botanica, the Wichita Gardens, for some family pictures. Instead it turned into an autobiography of what it’s like to live with an almost two year old. It was, actually, really amazing and refreshing. It’s always great to see the excitement in a child’s face, much to the chagrin of the parent. The pictures didn’t go as planned but they were natural and captured what life is like with a curious toddler. They were such an amazing and lovely family and it all still turned out very nice. I’d like to think so anyway. Plus, these are always my most favorite photographs, capturing the real moments when they don’t go as planned. Staged photos are great and all but it’s always even better to see the candid shots.
