Velma! (Auckgeddon 2015)

These pictures are a liiiittle old, taken in 2015. Whoops! I can definitely see how much my photography has grown since then, but I still love these photos.

Velma is JVCA cosplay, both a good friend and a stunning cosplayer. Go check out her Scout Harding, it’s incredible!

2016: A Year in Photos

2016: A Year in Photos

2016 was a massive year of travel, writing, getting into game development professionally, and taking my health seriously. There were a lot of ups and downs, almost more than any other year of my young life, and I have way too much to say about way too many things.

So, instead of words, I’m going to let photos do the talking. From both my phone and my DSLR, here’s a year of photos that sums up a lot of my 2017.

Photos below!

PAX Aus Cosplay: Dragon Age

PAX Aus Cosplay: Dragon Age

I only got one shoot in this year, and I’m so glad it was with these two! What gorgeous cosplayers, what gorgeous costumes. I always love the lighting around the trees outside of PAX, too.

BTW, I don’t know why but in the thumbnails the pictures are kinda blurry. Clicking on them gives you the sharp version! One day WordPress won’t be a piece of junk, maybe.

Meredith: Mithrilneth Cosplay
Cassandra: Chocotiel Cosplay
Photographer: Me, obviously.

There Was Ice (July 16)

There Was Ice (July 16)

It’s been a while since I’ve uploaded some photos! Here’s some pictures from this year’s venture down to the snow. There was not much snow, but there was a goat.

We also accidentally got adopted by a puppy, who followed us back to our cabin and would not leave us alone.

A bunch of these photos (a lot of the sunset ones and the goat) have just been edited with a new curve I made, which I’m really liking! I want to put some of my curves up somewhere, I just have to figure out where.

Anyways! If you like my photography, and want to see some of my process, I’m going to be putting some of that stuff on my Patreon over the next week. Plus, patrons get early previews of galleries. Woohoo!

Hawaii Colours (April 15)

Hawaii Colours (April 15)

Me: [puts down drink and gets out camera]
Sister: Are you taking another photo of your drink?
Me: [taking photo] No…

These photos are from like, an entire year ago, but winter is fast approaching and I’m missing those golden sands. So many gorgeous colours there, I couldn’t stop snapping photos of the way the light shone through leaves, across the landscape.

Also there were cats.

Creature (July ’15)

Costume & modelling by Static Cosplay.
Photography by me.

I adore Static’s costumes (and photography), so getting to shoot her was really cool. Bonus: the landscapes down near the snow are très gorg (and also freezing cold).

Intermission: Baby Shower

Intermission: Baby Shower

I recently attended a baby shower—perhaps the first of many?—and was blown away by the decorations and embellishments. Almost like walking into a real life Pinterest board.  I dream of a day when my own parties are this photogenic.

Long story short: I ate too many mint candies, took a lot of selfies with my friend-who-is-basically-a-sister, and suggested a name nobody can pronounce.

Let the hipster paper-straws-in-jars trend never die out. The straws may disintegrate as you drink, but at least you look cute.
