Etsy Love: Marco Suarez

I usually feel very 'meh' about landscape photography. And then I see this. Is it just me, or are these amazing? This brilliance is the work of Marco Suarez, and his little windows to magical lands have changed my mind. No more 'meh'. Okay, okay. I'm just saying, landscape photography never looked so good (sorry, Ansel).

Yay, Friday!

Yay, Friday! This weekend I'm going to the apple orchard with my sweet little family. I love fall so much, and going to the apple orchard every year is maybe my favorite thing ever.
And while we're on the topic, you must pay a visit to the amazing and talented Irene Suchocki. She has maybe the most successful photography-based Etsy shop out there, and it's easy to see why. I just love her. Have a lovely weekend!

Etsy Love: Animal Masks

I've been away for a while, but I'm back and super excited about today's Etsy Love! I'm gearing up for some lovely photo shoots with masks, so I've been looking around Etsy for inspiration. Now I can't wait to take pictures, and I love that feeling:) I'll be posting my stuff here in the next couple of weeks, so watch out.
xoxo, Mandy

Yay, Friday! This weekend I will play with my little Chloe as much as I can. She starts kindergarten on Monday, so this is our last weekend of summer before she officially becomes a big girl...*sniff*
Hope you all have lots of fun, too!

Etsy Love: Crafty Folk

Etsy has a new(ish) feature that suggests shops you might love based on shops you already love. And it's magical, because I pretty much love everything they suggest, starting with Crafty Folk. Because sometimes (always) I just want cute stuff. This shop has everything you need to surround yourself with cheerfulness, including wood brooches, mugs, and stickers. Hooray!

Elevating the Art of the Concert Poster

I came across these concert posters from The Small Stakes on poster cabaret today and had to share them. Aren't they awesome? I am a big graphic design junkie, and I think these are my new obsession. I just had to gush♥

Miss Match Week 9-Adventure

Miss Match Week 9-Adventure

This week's Miss Match diptych turned out to be one of my favorites. Michelle's image is stunning. I love her use of texture, and as for fulfilling the theme...nothing can speak adventure better than this. My image came from my belief that some of my favorite adventures were within the pages of smelly old books. And the lovely vintage suitcase was just perfect (a bazillion thanks to my thrifty mama♥).  
Aahh, I just love this project! Come see what swoon-worthy diptychs my ladies and I are creating over at Miss Match.

New Photos!

I am loving ttv photography right now. I love the black frame, I love the dirty lens, I love how the edges fall out of focus. It makes ordinary things interesting. For more lovely ttv, you must visit Cassia Beck's ttv set. And stay tuned, because Cassia is my Miss Match partner this week! Yay!

Miss Match Week 4::Yellow

For Miss Match Week 4, my theme was 'yellow' and my partner was California resident Lupen Grainne. I loved working with Lupen, I think she likes using textures as much as I do :)  You must check out her blog, Garden by the Sea. So much beauty, I wish I lived in one of her photographs.

For more diptych fun, please visit Miss Match.

Miss Match Week 3::Soft

Left: Mandy Bryant

For Miss Match Week 3, I paired up with the consistently amazing Yvette Inufio. Her work is light and dreamy, and always inspiring. Because our theme was 'Soft', I knew we were going to make something great together. I love how our colors compliment each other even though our subjects were very different. Isn't this fun? Check out Miss Match for more.

Miss Match Week 2::Joy

Right: Mandy Bryant

For Miss Match Week 2, my given theme was 'Joy'. I worked with the very talented  Serinissima from Sydney, Australia. We live on opposite sides of the world, but we had very similar points of view for this project. Working with our given surroundings, we came up with something so lovely and nostalgiac. For more brilliant diptychs, visit The Miss Match Project.

Miss Match Week 1

I'm participating in a new diptych project called Miss Match, and all participants are members of Female Photographers of Etsy. Each week we are given a theme and a partner. This week my theme was Domestic and my partner was the lovely, talented, and fellow Indiana resident Jennifer Aitchison. More fun images to come!

I'm an obsessive perfectionist about photos.  It's not unusual for me to take, like, a hundred shots of the same thing, trying to achieve that 'imperfect' look.  But I like my compulsions, they just work for me. Enter the Polaroid.  He's unpredictable, vulnerable, and super cute.  I am now in love. Please enjoy these lovely Polaroids, while I try to be a little less uptight and a little more spontaneous♥
