Spring Garden Bakery

In my spring semester of school, we were given a joint project, where we had to choose a company, product, etc to photograph, and do a short commercial for. I was paired with the wonderful Alicia Irvin, and a graphic design partner.

For our project, we decided to photograph Spring Garden Bakery, a local Greensboro, NC bakery. Spring Garden Bakery is a quaint bakery with some delicious sweets! From cupcakes and cookies to truffles and more!

New Year, New Goals, New Life Plans.

So I just realized that I haven't updated my blog since November! Holy Moly I'm a slacker!

So.... just to catch anyone that reads this up on my life...

I had the most amazing internship I could possibly ever ask for.

I spent October, November, and half of December down in Birmingham, AL (my dream city)
I was able to work with two unbelievable photographers Jean Allsopp and Becky Stayner, they were so helpful and understanding.

I had a ton of adventures with Jean, we travelled from Laurel, Mississippi to photograph the lovely Erin Napier of Lucky Luxe Couture Correspondence 's adorable home, to Seaside, FL to photograph a cottage for Flea Market Style Magazine & a home for another magazine. We then were able to travel to Tuskegee, AL and Cashiers, NC to work with amazing architect James Carter.

Between all these adventures, I was able to meet my absolutely amazing boyfriend, Nicholas Gregory. He has been my rock for the last few months, I don't know what I would do without him.

I was able to assist Becky Stayner on a few different projects. We did some advertising/ promo photos for Yogurt Mountain, do a few projects for Southern Living Magazine and started on a special cookbook that will be hitting the shelves in the Fall!

So, I am about to go through another 8 week semester of classes, and then I go back to internship! I plan on moving to Birmingham permanently in March with Nicholas, We're trying to buy a house! I couldn't be more excited!!! So, I have my 8 week internship, and then a 10 week summer semester, which is pretty much just an online class that I have to check into every week, and be at school for one day the whole semester, and thats for my Final Portfolio Review!

I can't believe I am going to be graduating college this year. For once, I actually finish something in my life! I finally met my dream man, and I'm as happy as ever!

I am also proud to announce that my best friend, Chelsea Mullis, is getting married this year, and I am so happy to be a bridesmaid in her wedding!

Oh, & since its the new year, I guess I should have a new years resolution? I vow to start being nicer to people :), and start keeping a journal.
