Throwback Thursday: Scholastic Keys 2020!

This week, I am working on some unfinished projects, so I decided I would create a post on my past work that won me my first few regional photography awards! Specifically, I earned a Gold Key, Silver Key, and an Honorable Mention award from the Scholastic Art and Writing competition held earlier this year. This photograph was taken of Emily […]

Pantyhose Project

A couple of weeks ago I described the different fabrics I picked up at JOANN Fabrics and Crafts. When I was taking a few self-portraits with those sheer fabrics, I decided to put a pair of my mom’s old pantyhose over my head. Even though my hair became a mess afterward, it was so worth it! I hung a white […]

Happy Labor Day!

These past couple of weeks have been hectic! A lot of schoolwork and adjusting to new routines and schedules. This weekend I had time to experiment with different photography ideas because of the long weekend (happy Labor Day everyone!). Because of the pandemic, I have still been playing with self-portraits and the self-timer on my camera. Yesterday, I even went […]

Summer Comes to an End

This summer has been incredible. I was able to take photographs that I would not have taken otherwise if I spent the summer at sleep-away camp as planned. Life is full of surprises, and I am grateful I was able to take advantage of the craziness of the pandemic to expand my creativity. I decided to include one of my […]

Secret Garden

These past few weeks I’ve been exploring new places while spending time with family. I, of course, took my camera with me just in case I saw something unique or interesting that catches my eye. As a photographer, I almost always discover a fascinating photograph to capture. A week ago, I was taking a stroll down a beautifully lit path […]


Over the holiday weekend, I spent some time on Marco Island. Marco Island is known for its stunning, white beaches and their many, many seashells that wash up. I decided to compare the night time and day time shells. In the day time, one shell stood out to be because of its enlarged size compared to the others. In contrast, […]

Summer Sunsets

I love driving with my mom to a destination with a beautiful sunset, especially in summer! A couple of nights ago, we thought it would be fun to drive west to see the Sahara dust storm sunset. It was magnificent. I stood up through the sunroof and felt like I was standing on top of the world while I admired […]

Parchment Paper

Until a few weeks ago, I would rarely use parchment paper. Now, I discovered it to be an amazing tool in photography to use to put in front of an object or person. I had no clue how it would turn out, so I just had fun with it! My brother even agreed to model! Usually, my friends love to […]

My First Post

Nothing is usual when there is a viral plague raging. I woke up to go get my hair highlighted and cut this morning. Under normal circumstances, I would walk into a normal salon greeted with hugs and air kisses, but today was different. I had to wear a mask throughout the whole time in the salon; I wasn’t allowed in […]
