I want to go back up north, travel around, and take portraits like this. Problem is, when I was up in Kodiak and had the opportunity to do it I was too shy. Gotta break that somehow. I want to make raw photos, without the fluff. Via here. Thanks to Callee for pinning it.

Sweet Potato (and Marshmallow) Biscuits

I'm trying to be very good about what I eat and how much of it. That's why I won't be making these anytime soon. But my GOD don't they look amazing? Sweet potato marshmallow biscuits. Check them out here on Smitten Kitchen. 

Okay, actually I lied. I will most likely be making them tonight in the kitchen with a bottle of wine. How can I resist now after looking at them AGAIN. Although I'm not sure if I'll include the marshmallow part... might be too sweet. What do you think, would you try it?

Shakey Graves

The southern twang, simple production, singing from the soul. I can't get this album out of my head. Now that I just found this live recording I'm in deep. Just watch it, you ladies will understand.

Head on over to bandcamp, listen to the album, and if you like it as much as I do name your own price to make it yours.

I need to start hooking up with awesome artists like this and to do epic photo shoots with them. I need to creatively shoot creative people! So I'm moving to Austin. Or Portland. LA just doesn't have my scene.

Kidding. Not moving. Obviously.

Why couldn't I have thought of this? Such a simple way to join two arts into one.
will be making my own version, which is I'm sure just what they want to hear.

Yosemite Family Portraits

There's something about film that's so magical, the way it pulls colors out and puts a gentle wash of light over everything. This Yosemite family session is nothing short of amazing, it makes me want to make some babies and go running north for Jill to capture us. Go to her blog to see more!

Swing Swag

The perfect playlist for when you have your fanciest clothes on and are hitting the town.... a modern twist on the sound of oldschool swing. When I live in a city and can get back into dance, I'm totally hijacking the studio's sound system and plugging this in. So. much. fun. For now it'll accompany me with a bottle of wine, snow outside, and weddings to edit. Classy, I know. I was definitely born a few decades too late.

On the Edge of Insanity

"When I first started teaching her I remember telling her, you know, the rules of base jumping, the facts. You jump long enough, you will break bones. You're in this sport long enough, you're gonna watch people die. And then third, it's kind of a pointless thing to talk about but you're gonna die too. Do this long enough, it's gonna kill you. If you can't deal with that, don't get into BASE jumping."

-20 Seconds of Joy

Not sure if the rush would ever be worth the risk, but I get why they do it. The guy at 2:43 on the other hand has just completely lost his mind. Completely.

Super impressed at the quality of this video. Watch it fullscreen HD, the artist behind the lens would thank you.
