Currently.

My last currently post was back in June of last year so I thought it was time to do a little update on life so… Currently… Reading: So last time I mentioned I was reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, definitely still reading it. It is a good book but I have the tendency to be reading three different books at the same time so …

12 Month Photo Challenge

12 month photo challenge - Kristie Jean

The 12 month photo challenge is back… When winter rolls around and I am not taking as many photos, that is when all the different ideas start floating around in my mind that give me a reason to pick up my camera. One of those ideas is the 12 month photo challenge. Melody and I attempted this a few years ago and we may have …

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018 - Kristie Jean

Well we have survived yet another year. This last post of the year is always my favourite to write. It is a good excuse to look over the last 12 months and reminisce on the good memories, but when I went to start this post nothing came to mind. It seemed like I had nothing to write about other then that 2017 finished with my …

Christmas 2017

HAPPY BELATED CHRISTMAS!! I hope you all had an amazing few days and your bellies are full of turkey and all the Christmas cookies you could fit in. I feel like we managed to spread Christmas out this year so these pictures were taken over the space of three days. From Christmas cookie and gingerbread house decorating on Saturday, to a yummy appetizer dinner Christmas Eve, …

Music of 2017

Music of 2017 - Kristie Jean

It is hard to believe there are only two weeks left of 2017. I feel like the older I get the faster times goes and a year is just a short little blip of time. Being as we are getting to the end of the year it is that time to start doing wrap up posts for the year and I thought I would start …

Visual Journal Challenge #5

visual journal challenge - Kristie Jean

The visual journal challenge is back….I mean it’s only been 2 years…no big deal. I don’t pick up my camera nearly as much as I should in the winter, I wouldn’t grab it and go for a walk around the block like I would in the summer, mostly just because I really just don’t like being out in the cold. Instead I tend to do …

Things To Remember When Shooting Your First Wedding

 Shooting your first wedding can be a pretty scary thing, I still remember the thought going through my head that this is someones wedding day and if I mess it up there is no redo on these photos. That thought still goes through my head every wedding day that comes around…though a little less loud now. I fully admit to not having a clue what …

Making The Most Of A Short Amount Of Time

Making the most of a short amount of time - Kristie Jean

Sometimes vacations aren’t anywhere near as long as you want them to be. You have all these amazing things you want to do but before you know it’s time to head home and you didn’t get to half of them. Lets face it, sometimes there just isn’t enough time in a day and unless you have a free couple months to travel you have to …

1AM Thoughts

1AM Thoughts - Kristie Jean

I wrote a while ago about believing in the impossible, about not letting others tell you that you can’t do something. The thing is when it is dark and quiet those 1am thoughts start creeping in and it’s not others telling you that you can’t but it is yourself telling you to give up. When it’s 1am and your brain just will not shut off it’s …

Instagram All The Way

Instagam - Kristie Jean

Out of all the social media platforms out there Instagram is my favourite…which may have something to do with me being a photographer and it being a photo based app…. Aside from that though I love Instagram for finding inspiration, whether it is as a photographer looking for new photo ideas, or yummy recipe ideas, painting inspiration, fitness inspiration, you can pretty much find anything …
