Photographers of the Carolinas: mark your calendars for an awesome location. At the first of July, the Draper Wildlife Reserve has a plethora of sunflowers in full bloom. Last year I neatly missed them but this year I was on top of it! You see, I am not stingy about my locations. I love sharing mine because I love seeing what others will do with them.
Since I found out about this amazing location, I have wanted to do a very boho/Coachella inspired session. See, I am secretly boho but I don’t dress like it. Why? Because I lack style. I also fear that I will look dumb…Is it ok for a 30-year-old to wear a Kimono? I really want one but I haven’t purchased one because I don’t want to be that woman who is trying too hard. You know that woman. You see her everywhere: hot pink thong, crop top and too many wrinkles to count. Especially Wal-mart. You definitely see her at Wal-Mart. I don’t want to look like that. Any advice my fashionistas? I am a sponge. Give me your styling tips.
Speaking of 30, tomorrow, July 11th, is my 30th birthday. I officially feel old. Guess what I am doing for my birthday? I am going to Carowinds, our local amusement park. Why there? Well, I don’t have many friends and I don’t drink for fun (hangovers…ew) so I decided to bring in 30 with some fun. Since having my son, I have robbed myself of fun when it comes to going to the amusement park. You can’t take a 3-year-old on a roller coaster. Not one that you actually enjoy. I enjoy being thrusted 50+ mph into loops, turns and everything else crazy that roller coasters provide. So for my 30th birthday, I am going to act like a kid for a night. If the storms stay away, I will be riding the Night Hawk and Afterburn all night long.
Now I leave you with this gorgeous young woman. Miss McKaylee has such beautiful features. The camera loves her and so do I.
