Every-Day Photography

You don’t have to have a super fancy camera or even hours a day to do a “proper” photo shoot. If you want to show off your photography skills, you can do it just with your smartphone and whatever you’re doing that day! I promise not to put too much writing in this post; I’ll share a couple of photos that I took throughout my day and let you know what I was doing while I took each. I hope this gives you a glimpse into my every-day life and the photography I get the chance to produce the most often!


I was just doing my best to stay alive when I took this photo! I had just completed a very sweaty 30 minutes on the treadmill when I looked up and realized that this shot was perfect. The lighting in my gym is a bit harsh, and it was creating this weird shadow that I actually kind of loved. It makes the inspirational sign all the more powerful!



latteaI have to have tea every morning after I work out; I don’t know what it is – maybe it’s the whole warm-cup-in-my-hands thing (the feeling of which I’ve been craving ever since I cut back on coffee). Anyway, this was a tea-latte-thing I created (which I’m now calling a lattea) and felt the need to take a photo of while I was sitting on my bed enjoying every sip!

healthy lunch

I have so much love for the picture above. I laid out my lunch one day – purposefully, just trying to take a picture to show how to create a healthy lunch – when I realized that I could adjust each object to create a really cool photo full of differing shapes and perpendicular/parallel lines.

These two photos are more my “Instagram-aesthetic” style than anything else. I was just working on some business stuff one night when I decided that my supplies were laid out perfectly for a really pretty (but – hopefully – motivating) photo!


And that’s basically it for now – I’ll always have more “every-day” photos to share! Do you really enjoy creating your own aesthetic in photos or just taking pictures of your life? Drop a comment below to share with us how you handle the every-day!

P.S. I’m running a special on event photography in the month of March 2019! If you book your event in March (to be held by the end of the year), you’ll get 40% off the total cost of my photography services. Contact me for more info!
