It’s officially a family affair this photography hobby of mine. My sister got her first digital Canon Rebel while I was home last weekend and of course we spent the entire time playing with the settings. Because we’re awesome we spent Saturday night (yes, Saturday night) in the dark playing with multiple and long exposures. Here’s some of the fun…
We even got brother in on the action…
The Halloran standard, get all three of us in a single picture and at least one of us has our tongue out
My favorite – it’s a total lie but you get the idea
On my trip home my siblings and I went on a photo safari in downtown Detroit. Not knowing how much longer this beautiful building will be in our lives, our first stop was the old Train Depot. We packed an old mink of my grandma’s as a prop.
We went down to find the Ambassador Bridge for some more photos
I finally got the guts to go out and buy myself a new lens that I am pretty sure my friends are sick of hearing about. Well, it finally arrived on my birthday and my friend Nicole was kind enough to test it out with me last weekend. Nicole just finished Law School and passed the bar this summer. Congrats Nicole and thanks for being my model for the day!
One of my favorites right here!
Last week I finally took my first “adult” vacation. By that I mean I went on a vacay with a good friend instead of siblings or parents.
Amy and I spent our days sunning ourselves, swimming and getting massages. Our nights were spent watching sunsets and having some of the most delicious food on the planet.
Below is part 1 of the photos. Another round to come later this week. Enjoy!
Daily diet basics…
My lovely travel companion
Delicious bruschetta and some of the best tiramisu i have ever tasted all wrapped up with a gorgeous sunset bow.
Well, it is officially spring in Chicago. The weather is chilly and I’m pretty sure I’ve not seen the sun for days with all the rain we’ve been having. Because I like to live dangerously (and by dangerous I mean randomly) I decided today that I wanted to pull the images off my iPhone because I have a few I wanted to share.
I love the angle I got on this one – it looks like the bus is trying to run away.
Even walking in Chicago you run into pot holes…
April Showers bring Tulips!
Leaving Milwaukee to come back to Sweet Home, Chicago
A self-pic that I think turned out rather well…I can still feel the sun on the back of my neck
Can I just tell you how excited I am for this weekend?! The summer fun officially kicks off with Cub Hunt this Saturday. Cub Hunt is a scavenger hunt started last year by a friend of mine. I’ll be spending the whole day with my closest friends, running around the city of Chicago acting like a total goofball, what could be better? I will definitely be taking my my camera and capture the shenanigans! Until I have some of those pics to post, here are some of my favorite portrait shots I wanted to share.
