Life Unedited (page 5)

I am feeling different. There could be and are a lot of reasons that I feel different, but I feel like I just need to say it here.

Things still feel very discombobulated amid the hopefully beginning of the end of the pandemic. That could also be applied to a life decision I made that I still haven’t blogged about. Eventually, it’ll be here.

Isolation is definitely hitting full force, and not necessarily isolation from people in general because I’m starting to hang out with some friends again, but not getting to meet new people at bars, games, or wherever.

It’s hard to think that I’ve missed a year of that. Right now, being single sucks.


Still not ready.

Neglect is the theme of this blog this fall and now winter and I’m still not ready to figure it out. I do hope to create an actual plan and guide to keep myself consistent like I once was. I’m giving myself the entire winter to figure that one out.

Things are weighing on me pretty heavy right now and I’m not quite sure how to handle it. Frankly, I don’t even feel like that statement is true, but my body keeps telling me it is.

The next month is full and after it passes, I will be able to relax (and post a blog about all that happened because I guess it kind of is a big deal).

Other than that, I will leave this post quite short. I just wanted to say that I found a new way to edit my personal photos that I really, really, really like. I haven’t found that yet, so it’s pretty exciting.

See! It’s like fake film!

More from me!


I stand here writing this post reminiscing over a nice, autumn photo adventure I had a couple weekends ago in a full on blizzard.

…I promise I love Minnesota.

Anyway, I coach high school dance team and had to cancel practice due to said blizzard, so I have actual time to think about being productive.

I’ve been neglecting much more than this blog, but the constant reminder that I pay for this lingers in the back of my mind enough to produce a couple times a month.

I’m planning on reviving this bad boy towards the end of the year and that really just means I’m going to start scheduling posts again and remain consistent. πŸ˜‰

For now, enjoy a few photos of my face and the beautiful fall season pre-snow.


Autumn Aesthetic

My favorite time of yearπŸπŸ‚

There’s going to be a lot of photography coming as I figure out a rhythm with posting again. Good thing, it’s something I love to do!


engagement session

Olivia & Matt | Engagement Session

This engagement session was so fun! I know Olivia through her older sister (my super good friend), so I was ecstatic when she asked if I’d be her photographer for her wedding and engagement photos.

It was even more exciting when Olivia mentioned she wanted to go to a sunflower field! Those are obviously all the rage during the summer time, but it’s totally justified. We got the most beautiful photos during this session.

Here’s a few more than a few of my favorite.

Olivia and Matt were naturals despite what they may think. I love when couples just have a good time with each other, especially during an engagement session. We love to see the love!

I’m still learning with photography and editing, however, I’m pretty proud of how these photos turned out. I think I’m figuring out an actual editing style, which is neat!

Either way, I’m super excited to stay with this couple through their wedding day next summer. It’s going to be a blast!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this new style of post! I’m going to start adding in client sessions here that my website links out to. It provides a little more personable look to the sessions!


golden hour

Golden Hour

I finally took time to play around with the prime photography time of golden hour. You know, the beautiful light coming off a warm sunset?

I wish I had discovered photography when I was younger. I would have been out to this little pond a lot more. But while my family still lives there, I can enjoy its photo perks when I visit.

Golden hour is a fun time to shoot. While most of these photos display the end of the golden light (and not the best time for portraits), the mood was perfect and exactly what I was going for. Not too often do I have a more create photography idea that actually pans out.

I’m pretty pumped.

I’ve learned that within the hour before sunset, there’s an even smaller window to capture that picture perfect light, so golden hour is a bit deceiving. Either way, I have an engagement shoot tomorrow during the evening at a sunflower field and I can’t wait to use the warm light.






My favorite place in the world.

I’m been procrastinating posting because I’ve been using new SEO tricks and they are very intimating, but today I’m ignoring that and showing you my favorite place in the world.

I live in Minnesota in the United States, but my family cabin is right across the border in Ontario, Canada. With the entire world on lockdown because of the pandemic and the US being the shitshow at maintaining it, the borders are closed.

This year would have been the first summer since working like an adult that I could have made it up at least twice if not more. It stinks, but I know its for the health of others (even though it would be like the most socially distanced place we could be).

In honor of the joy that is found there and in my selfish sadness, here are some pictures of my favorite place in the world.

I may have photoshopped a pretty sky in there, but the feeling is all the same.
