Dear Future Career

Only a few months away from being done with college, and there has never been more uncertainty in my life regarding where I’ll be in the coming months.

Whatever path I choose, the three key things I would need in my career would be autonomy, opportunities to learn and grow, and the means to foster connections with others. Because of this, I know I could fit in just about wherever I’m needed. The problem is, where do I start looking? Where will I be in 6 months – in a year? How will I be contributing to society?

What Comes First?

If you know me, you know that I’m an active person. I almost always have something on my schedule, and I’m just about always doing something. Most of the time, the people who see me only see me when I’m going to or coming from different events. Student life is a busy life, and working two jobs, three if you count photography, can certainly keep someone occupied.

Plenty of Catching Up

This is a long delayed blog post. To give you an idea of when it was supposed to be published, I was going to use this to blog post to announce my “hiatus” during staff training in August… But now we’re in October and I’ve done a photo shoot just about every weekend (or more) while at CMU, so there’s that.

Anyhow, to bring you up to speed, we’ll have a short list of some of the bigger shoots that I did in the rest of my summer before coming back to Mt. Pleasant. Continue reading “Plenty of Catching Up”

A Month in Italy

There’s so much to share from this trip that it’s overwhelming. Emotionally, it was a roller coaster – it began with chaotic flights, loneliness, and minimal food to walking everywhere with good company and eating so much that we could barely move afterward. The people I met were the most important component of this trip, and the main reason for every bit of joy and every memory. I’ll do my best to string all of our crazy little stories together in a narrative to give you a glimpse of the people I met in our time together in Italy.

Photo Spree

The last few weeks have been fun and busy. Between prepping for a trip to Florence creating tons of new work, and seeing friends, there has been plenty to do. Instead of a long, reflective intro, we’ll just jump into shoot descriptions this time around!

The first full week of June, my absolutely wonderful photo pal Alex┬ácame to Detroit to visit me and a few other people. Together, we went exploring downtown: from the tops of a parking garage to some of the smallest pizza places, we stopped in some great locations for photos. However, before that…

Catching up on Creating

It’s been exactly a month and a half since my last blog post. Since then, I survived all my classes (I had exactly 90% in 3/4 classes – so close), went on at least 5 shoots, and have had plenty of time to create. This blog post mostly serves as a way of catching up on documenting the last handful of creative shoots that have taken place in the last few weeks. Continue reading “Catching up on Creating”
