Making It Work.

photo cred; alteredbyamber

Now, lately I have been struggling to come up with creative ideas. I seem to go in phases of creativity & love for blogging, and it quickly seems to deplete and here I am again... Struggling.

So I decided, instead of publishing posts I am not too thrilled with or just not posting at all, I am going to post a photo (or photo set) a day throughout the entire month of May.

May is one of my favorite months of the year, so I figured it would be a good month to publish some photos i am proud of without having to feel obligated into writing. This is kind of my way of "making it work," the wise words of Tim Gunn.  I am also hoping this will spark some idea fire like the last time I started the "photo-a-day" project. So everybody, fingers, toes, arms & everything crossed! 

until next time,

Sending Love. xx


My mother & I made this video to show our support & love towards the victims, families, and survivors of the tragedies that happened, both in Boston and Waco, TX. This video was incredibly fun to make, all while sending love to those who were greatly affected.

I have always wanted to make a stop-motion video, so I was more than happy to help my mom in her project for a digital art class. The Boston Marathon bombing also showed me just how quick your life could go from exciting to terrifying. It's pretty eye-opening when it's closer to home. 

sending all my love your way, Boston & Texas <3

Photoshoot Sundays: Behind the Scenes.

great derp face McKenna, just great.
If you have been following me or checking my blog at any length of time, you most likely know I love photoshoots. I am constantly planning them out in my head and even though I sometimes get slightly impatient  my mother is always willing to be my photographer. ;)

my sneaky, swtiched-roles pic ;)
         We have just recently made it tradition for us to have one big photoshoot/adventure day on any major holiday or any Sunday for that matter. This Easter, we decided to pack up my mum's new tripod & funky umbrella to hit the road in search for a good backdrop for that day's photoshoot.
Now, this is just the behind the scenes post so you will be seeing the real shots soon :)

After a day filled with laughs & great photos, we decided to have a late lunch at one of our favorite restaurants on the coast (it helped that it was the only restaurant open...). We laughed, made fun of each other, took some more fabulous photos, had some great food, and enjoyed each other's company until it was time to return to reality. 

queen of the derp faces today I guess
These days are some I will never forget. 

Be on the lookout for the offspring of this photoshoot soon! 

until next time lovelies,
