What does one do when they wake up extremely early? Well start a blog of course! I have been meaning to start blogging my adventures in photography, but just keep putting it off, I have decided that there is no time like the present. I thought it would be appropriate to start my blog off with someone who is going to see pop up on my blog quite often, she is an extraordinary woman who I have know for over a decade and was one of my very first models, my dear friend Kristen. I adore this girl, we have tons in common and bonded over our love of Lord of the Rings, when the movies came out I lost count of how many times we went and saw them together. We also both attended Oregon State University and she is a devout Beavers fan. She has been my constant muse and inspiration since I started photography and I can say without hesitation that I wouldn’t be where I am today with out her. Kristen has listened to, and gone along with every single crazy idea I have tossed her way with a smile on her face, even when I asked her to get into a frigid creek she didn’t even hesitate. Whenever I get into a rut with my photography or if I want to test out new ideas or lighting setups all I have to do is call and she somehow finds time in her busy schedule to help me out. Thank you Kristen for being the best friend and model a girl could ask for.
