Kalin’s Last Humpday

It’s here!! I can’t believe it’s here! Finally sunshine! Hot weather! A/C… Pretty much the worst thing if you haven’t achieved your summer body yet. Eek. Please don’t wait to catch me in a bikini, because what I love more than salad are gummi bears… Which brings me to the topic of my photos, my…

Harvard Arboretum Flowers Lilacs

Floral Connection at Arnold Arboretum

So I’m usually the nerd who always has their camera on hand, but this morning I was rushed out of my house and forgot my companion. For Mother’s Day this year, my parents came down to Boston for the Arnold Arboretum Lilac Festival. If you love plants and nature, I definitely recommend that you check…

East Side Goes West Side

Finally made it to the west coast; San Francisco, California! Only took 25 years, but I am here! Arriving a few days early for a work trade show, I decided to wander the city with no plans in mind. This was partially based on procrastination to plan and more so on my frugal wallet. With my…

Bodies by Omar

They say things fall into place or your meet the right people when you least expect it. Funny enough, I had been going to the same gym for months, but had never met Omar, who is a trainer at Gymit. Of course, Omar appeared at a pivotal time in my life and not only help…

So This is What Working at Zappos is Like?

These boots were made for walking! … I lied. These booties are super uncomfortable with no tread; don’t buy them! But they do look pretty in the photos, right? Today I had a little insight into what it may be like to work on the photography production team at Zappos. In order to practice lighting…

Light Me Up

I got a new tattoo this week! Of course, I would pick nothing other than this zen octopus to represent my calm and mysterious spirit. For all of you who are curious if it hurt or not, it was pretty painless to be honest. I’ll tell you my little secret, Photoshop. 😉 Did I get…

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

I can’t believe I didn’t find this place sooner! Tucked away near Fenway, this little museum houses the art collected by Isabella Stewart Gardner. Living in the 1800’s she spent over three decades collecting art from all over the world. In 1903, she finished the Fenway Court in Boston and opened it to the public to…

Blue Hills

About 20 minutes out of the city, the Blue Hills is one of the quickest escapes for a Vermonter like me. Call me a “Free Range” person, but I can’t stay pent up in a city for too long. As much as I love what city life offers, sometimes there is nothing better than a…

First Night Photography Attempt in Boston

  Okay, so this was my first attempt at city long-exposure photography. I was out chasing the super moon, but unfortunately didn’t catch it that night do to the clouds. Around 4 pm along the Charles, I experimented with the city lights and definitely have a lot more to learn. The first shot above was taken…
