I woke up this morning full of inspiration for this last day of the challenge, so I decided to gather up a little tablescape of my own!  I used the morning light and my very limited apartment space, but it was fun to fill a table with pretty things and just snap away.  All of the items were things I had around the house, all relocated and piled onto our table, with the textbooks and papers stashed strategically out of sight.  It was a nice little exercise in creativity, and in using things I have in a new way.  It turns out that my blue plate collection looks rather nice paired with our everyday china, and now I’m all sorts of inspired to have a dinner party.

Through these past thirty-one days I’ve explored some really fun areas with my camera, and I’m thankful for the motivation and inspiration.  But I’ve got to say, even with learning how to read the light, process my images, and frame my shots, my favorite photos hands down will be the ones that capture sweet moments like the one below, even if it is just a blurry cell phone shot.

These dear friends speak to my soul more than any photograph in the world, and I’m so humbled by their grace and their kindness.  And I’ll be guilting them into getting in front of my lens soon, because holy crap, aren’t they gorgeous?

Thank you for sticking out this crazy month of photos with me!

Kait behind the camera, over and out!

I wanted to sneak in this last little wedding-related post before my month long challenge is up, so here it is!  I helped the Kira Nicole Photography team with this stunning styled shoot a few months back, and I’ve got to say, I loved how it turned out!  The advantage of a styled shoot is that we could obsess over capturing every single little detail without any pressure or time restraint.  Throw in a sweet couple, and you’ve got a photographer’s dream!  A couple of my shots were featured on a local bridal publication, Bayside Bride, which you can check out by clicking here!

The end of my blogging challenge is near, and I wanted to squeeze in my favorite images from Zach and Rachel’s beautiful backyard wedding!  These two were adorable and barely had to be posed at all.  The whole day had a relaxed and calm vibe, with so many sweet handmade touches.  I had such a blast working this crazy wedding weekend with Kelsey, and I learned so much from constantly being behind the lens.

One of my all time favorite things about my non-traditional work schedule and our non-conventional living situation is that I get to spend random bits of mid day fun with these two.  I mean, just look at those faces!  Luna and I usually get to eat lunch together, and Joe stops by to entertain us every once in a while.

One of Luna’s party tricks (aside from catching the frisbee mid-air and eating couches) is that when you pat your chest, she jumps right up into your arms.  It’s adorable every time.

And my new favorite candid is her face while jumping.  In case you needed a good laugh today 😉
