Personal Post!

Happy Monday!¬† It feels like Tuesday to me.¬† I’m always so confused about the weekdays!

Anyhow, this weekend on top of my shoot with my model, Logan, I did a shoot with my best friend (my soul sister ♥).  It was just a little thing for fun, but I think we got a few nice photos out of it!

To view the entire shoot click here.  Here are a few of my favorites, though! (Remember to click to enlarge and improve quality):

¬†Other than that, there’s not much that’s happened this weekend or coming up this week.¬† I have training for my job on Wednesday!¬† That’s exciting.

See you Wednesday for favorite song of the week!

Friday Post! (On a Saturday!)

I apologize for not posting yesterday, there was no time!¬† Tonight I’m staying up late to edit pictures though so I thought I might as well make up for it and blog while I edit. ūüôā So onto Friday Post!

Third! Personal Update:

This week was good! ūüôā I’m progressing with guitar. Yay!

I also did a photoshoot with Logan again today but this time it was just Valentine’s themed, not fashion or anything.¬† Here are a few of my favorites, but you can find the entire album here on Espoir Photography’s Facebook Page. Remember to click on the photos to enlarge them and improve quality!


The end for tonight.¬† I know it was a short post, but I’m so tired!¬† I’ll see you Monday!

Personal Post!

To start… let me just say that I’m done with the movie reviews for a while… I don’t have the time for them.

Also!¬† I LOVED the shoot yesterday!¬† It was only a little awkward because Logan and I had never worked together, but once we got into it things were fun!¬† ūüôā¬† She is pretty good with modeling already and I think after a few times together she will be a pro!¬† I think the biggest obstacle for Sunday was that it was freezing outside.¬† We were doing a fashion shoot, so it wasn’t like she could keep a coat on¬†all the time.¬† She actually did keep a heavey jacket on almost the whole time even though it covered the outfits… it was just way too cold.¬† I don’t think we’re going to be doing any more outdoor shoots until it’s warm!

Want to see a few photos from yesterday?¬† Okay.¬† ūüôā¬† Here are my favorites.¬† Want to see the full album?¬† Visit it here on Espoir Photography’s Facebook page.¬† Oh, and don’t forget to click on the photos to enlarge them and improve the quality, please.

And now my favorite photo of the entire shoot (and everybody else’s favorite as well)…. *drum roll*

Also…¬†Logan and I are thinking of doing a¬†Valentine’s themed shoot next weekend!!! ūüėÄ I hope that happens!¬†¬†That would be SO much fun!¬† My mind is already going crazy with ideas for that one!¬†¬†If we do that shoot though, it will most likely be inside somewhere like maybe my house or hers and I’ll set up a little studio.¬† Like I said, it’s¬†too cold outside to do shoots out there!¬† Even though there’s no snow yet, it’s still like 30 degrees Fahrenheit and that’s too cold to be modeling in.

Ah!¬† Life is good right now photography-wise.¬† I’m very happy¬†right now.¬† Oh!¬† I can also play Ode To Joy on guitar now!¬† I feel like a pro. >:D

I’ll see you Wednesday¬†for¬†Favorite Song of the Week!

Friday Post!

Second! Recipe:

Picture and recipe from here.¬† I am actually drinking this right now.¬† I am also eating the other half of the avocado¬†that was left over from the recipe with some salt.¬† I’m alternating, a drink of the smoothie, a bite of the avocado, and it’s so divine, I never thought an avocado could taste so rich and sweet!

I think this smoothie would be amazing along side of the other half of the avocado every morning for breakfast or a healthy (and filling) snack.¬† It’s very yummy.



  • 1/2 of a hass avocado
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 1/2-1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon condensed milk
  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add more sugar or milk until you get the desired consistency/taste.

I, Kate, left out the condensed milk because I didn’t have any and it still turned out wonderful!

Third! Personal Update!

First of all- Happy birthday to my Nana!!! She’s the best Nana in the world. ‚ô•

Not much has happened this week.¬† School was great as usual.¬† There’s a kid, Kris who is in literally half of my classes (we have two classes together every day and lunch together every day) and he’s becoming my best friend, pretty much.¬† He’s way awesome.¬† It’s nice to have a good friend already.¬† ūüôā

I’m also (hopefully) going to have a fashion photoshoot with my friend Logan this Sunday!¬† I’m not sure if I posted about it Monday, but it was originally planned for Thursday (yesterday) and got rescheduled.¬† I really hope it goes well on Sunday!¬† I have to say this is the most excited I’ve been for a shoot before!

If the shoot happens, I’ll probably upload a few pictures on Monday on here and give a link to the complete album on my Facebook page.

That’s all for now.¬† ūüôā I’ll see you Sunday!

Personal Post!


Today was a very good day.¬† I got four assignments done for a certain class (on a good day I can get two done) and also finished another class!¬† I just have to take that class’s final.¬† I’m not looking forward to that.¬† I also drank over 8 glasses of water!¬† Yay for me!

Yesterday I promised you pictures from Mo’s party!¬† I’m just going to put my favorites on here, but you can find all of the photos on the Facebook page for my photography.¬†Click on any of the photos for increased quality and larger size.


“Happy birthday to you…”

Beautiful birthday girl.


The three kiddos at the party.¬† There were also 7 or 8 adults there, too.¬†¬†Didn’t photograph them, though.

The party was pretty fun.  I really enjoyed seeing Mo attack the cake!  Did I mention she got it on the dining room walls? HAHA!

On another note, I’m going¬†for a run tomorrow morning.¬† I’m quite nervous.¬† I haven’t gone running in a long time and to be honest I haven’t exercised in over a week…¬†*hangs head* I¬†made a new schedule for myself¬†for 20 weeks.¬† Over those¬†20 weeks¬†I’m going to increase how much¬†I run everyday (well, every day that¬†I¬†run) and end up running a half marathon!¬† On my own… not for an actual half marathon.¬† I know running is really good for you though, and I want¬†it to be a part of my¬†regular fitness routine.¬† I’m going to do this.¬† I have tried so many times¬†before to get back into running but I always give up.¬† This¬†time¬†I will do it. I can do it!¬† I’m a new person this year and I don’t give up anymore. ūüôā Tehe.

Anyways, that’s pretty much all I have to say today, there’s not too much news over here.¬† See you Wednesday for my favorite song of the week!


Merry Christmas!
Happy Holidays!

This year I got a Canon SX130IS and a case for Christmas! Oh, and a memory card! I am so happy! I am so very, incredibly happy!¬† I can now do photoshoots and take more artistic photography without having to bum a camera off a friend anymore!¬† Plus, it’s so¬†nice, too!¬† No, it’s not a huge fancy one, but it is a Canon and it does have a lot of great settings!¬† I am so in love with it, I could go on forever.

I have taken a few artistic pictures so far, but they all still need editing and I don’t have too much time right now to do that.¬† So, for now, here’s just a few silly pictures I took of myself with it!

In about an hour, I should be heading over to my Nana’s for Christmas dinner.¬† I’m also going to stay over there until Tuesday.¬† It’s going to be fun!¬† So I’ll hopefully post a lot of pictures and an update of what else I get on Tuesday night or Wednesday.

I hope that everyone is having an awesome day!
