“People taught me all sorts of (German) words, but the only ones that stuck were Kaiserschnitt, which means Cesarean section, and Lebensabschnittspartner. This doesn’t translate to “lover” or “life partner” but, rather, to “the person I am with today,” the implication being that things change, and you are keeping yourself open.”
Trying to collect pictures of myself with egg creams is so 2007 of me, so I’m thinking a new additional personal meme should be pictures of me with tubs of cheese balls. The thing is, tubs of cheese balls are equally elusive and rare (and delish) as egg creams. And in case you were wondering, the pictured Simplify brand is way too salty but the Target brand rivals Planter’s. And yes, this is the kind of piddling stuff I think about on the eve of my 30th birthday while my peers are procreating and buying homes and being Adults.

Last month I had the great honor and luck to shoot my very first wedding, thanks to Susie, the maid of honor who recommended me to the bride. I was nervous and stressed leading up to the wedding. Being trusted with documenting someone’s big day is enormous pressure, and I wanted to make sure “expectations were managed” before I signed on for anything. I am far from the skilled photographer I’d like to be, I have almost no gear at all, no fancy tools or tricks of the trade, nothing. So, I REALLY had to bring it.
