Snaps: Hidden Shots

On a weekly basis I take A LOT of pictures. Almost too many to count sometimes. Sometimes even good photos don't make it to outfit posts because I don't want to overcrowd the post, the pictures still are nice regardless, but there's only so many angles you really need. If you recognize some of these outfits it's because they've already been up! I also love to take tons of pictures of my nephews and those are usually kept for personal use, but sometimes they make it on here as well. They do something cute every ten seconds, and it's so hard not to take my camera out every time and try to document it. They also love to jump into my outfit shots, which is usually pretty hysterical. Eddie loves it the most , he tells me all the time that one day he's going to be my "personal photographo." 

Nature is also something I also really love to photograph. I love photographing plants, animals, insects, the sunrise/sunset, and of course the moon. It's really fascinating that the photos I take with the natural light hardly ever need to be retouched. Especially when I take pictures of my Mom's flowers, or the insects crawling around them. The world is a beautiful place, and sometimes there's little hidden things everywhere you look. The things you can't set up in a photo shoot. My favorite thing to do is just walk around the neighborhood taking pictures of random things. The other night I happened to be driving past my old elementary school around sunset. I looked over and saw how beautiful the sky was, and I was so thankful I had my camera with me. These are some of the randoms that have happened over the past few weeks. As for me, I am still in Minnesota enjoying myself, today we are going to valley fair to ride some rollercoasters! I hope you're all having a great week as well!
