I’ve been on the hunt for an amazing leather tote all summer. I’ve been traveling a lot and the need for it grew and grew. I checked out so many…Madewell, JCrew, Etsy, and a few others. They are all amazing….but this one takes the cake on first sight. I saw it on Pinterest and I went directly to the site. I watched all the videos offered, looked into the tanning process, and bought it a week later when I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

The minute I opened the box, the beautiful leather smell sold me. I absolutely love the color of the leather, a deeper brown than I anticipated, but very beautiful. The Whipping Post logo is understated which is what I really wanted and the size was quite big, fitting everything I have into one convenient bag.

Yep, I’m bored today. I mean, I have about a million things to do and 3 projects in the works, but I cannot get the creative juices going. I was feeling blah all day, and I finally just had it. I put on some powder, pulled on a pair of comfy jeans, and took the tripod outdoors. Sometimes, I like to do these self portraits to put things back in perspective. It’s different than taking a look in the mirror. It’s like seeing yourself through someone else’s eyes, through a photographer’s eyes. Taking self portraits that are not camera “selfies” is a little challenging, especially on a DSLR where the focus will not be correct if you’re not in front to meter and focus. I took a light stand, and placed it in the spot where I would pose. It took a couple tries to get the focus and height correct, but it’s a good exercise to do. You have to compose the image without the subject, and on top of that, you have to pose yourself once you’re in front of the camera!










Kent’s Corneliani jacket is phenomenal. Just phenomenal. We were supposed to be shooting corporate headshots, but when he pulled out this jacket, we decided to take a spontaneous mini trek to the Peter’s Canyon Trail and went into the creek to shoot right during magic hour.
