I've only ever read about bloggers speaking so highly of Bella-Grace  magazine and given peeks into it's magical pages. I almost squealed like a piglet when I came across the publication looking for something else entirely. I snatched it like it was the last one earth...like it is coveted and I possessed it now! As I was standing in the check-out line flipping through the pages, I knew by Kim's style that she was featured. I could hardly stand it when I discovered 2 more blogger/IG buddies were also featured~
I almost burst!

I LOVE still life photography and just want to play everyday and hone in on it-of course that isn't always possible.(but a girl can dream) At the end of Kim's piece, there is a page for exploring still life photography & to jot items that make "your heart flutter." So I gathered unlike items that I wanted to shoot...It was like opening the flood gates and permission, if you will, to let go, have fun and just shoot!
(KK's Naturally textures used)

As I was shooting, I noticed a little page book marker sticking out...swoon!

It's rare when I shoot that more photos are usable than not...But not this shoot. It was like the stars and moon and the most perfect light was aligned for me yesterday.

The cool thing about not having hair is having time to blog before work!
This is 2 weeks after my big shave. I actually went to Frankie's barber for a clean-up. THAT was a bit nerve wracking! I was getting anxious as I was scrolling at short hair-dos trying to figure out a style I wanted to go with. And then I said to myself...why? Why would you want all that work and fuss if it makes you anxious. So, I decided I'm not ready to grow it back yet! 

Hope you all had a beautiful Easter/Passover with friends and loved ones. 
I'll be over to say hello throughout the week :-)
Until then...
Happy (spring) snapping!

  1. Your still life's are just perfect...I'm a sucker for tea cups, and you look so fabulous with it like that, why not? Besides summer is fast approaching and in my world that just means limp hair anyway! xo

  2. Great shots...and honey, you look amazing! Go with it until you're done going with it...you do wear it well! Aloha

  3. Really beautiful photographs, Kelly, and you look just beautiful!

  4. Wonderful photos. The book and pussy willow is my favorite. You are beautiful . . . and what absolutely gorgeous eyes.

  5. Wonderful still life images, Kelly ... and yes ... you do look gorgeous!

  6. Beautiful images! I love all your props, the pussy willow and the page marker are my favorite... but then the moss and eggs are wonderful too! I am in the same boat as Kim, my hair come summer will be limp and back in a ponytail most days. Enjoy your 'extra' time not fussing with your hair. You look great!

  7. Amazing still lifes! I never seem to have the patience for it! I shot happily whatever comes in front of my lens or iphone....not very professional but fun!
    Love the new hair you have it makes your eyes even more beautiful.

  8. You completely rock at the still-life photos. I enjoy still-life but don't seem to have the time or creativity lately to pull it together (u.g.h.!) I think I am also a bit frustrated that I lost so many of Kim's textures when my computer crashed that I have compartmentalized that category of my creative voice into Mute mode. Need to work on this.

  9. beautiful. love the pussy willows...and your hair (lack of) : )

  10. I love still life photography as well! Your shots are all so lovely!

  11. You can so rock the baldish look. I adore Bella Grace. I always love your still life work.

  12. Stunning still life images! I have heard so much about Bella Grace. Will have to get my hands on a copy.

    BTW, you rock that look!

  13. Beautiful and so peaceful still life, Kelly ~ those katkins and grey / green shades! I would love to read the Bella Grace, Will see if I might get hold of one here in Copenhagen.
