refreshing / dusty


L - Nikon / T - Nikon

Bear with us while we renovate a little here on our blog. There can be comfort in the old but sometimes the old gets dusty and worn out – new is usually refreshing and clean. So we're starting with a new white template, fresh new banner, and profile pic. I did a little sprucing up last night. I would love for our photos to show a little bigger but I'm having trouble with that. Can anyone offer suggestions? My original images are plenty big but when I upload, Blogger sizes it down. Is there an simple way to fix this?
UPDATE: I figured out how to keep my images large. Are they too big now?
Curious - these photos were taken on the same day – one in her bedroom at home and one in an abandoned house that she claims as her own. I was making sure her room was in order before she got home and at the same time she was shooting film in Athens at an old abandoned home that she is using for her final photo assignment. She got some really cool digital images and I imagine her film is just as good.

Are you serious? Was that chair in that abandoned house? It's gorgeous. And the light in the first shot, golden.

Your new look is very professional looking. Beautiful.

Had to come back and wish you and Taylor a happy, happy Thanksgiving. Tomorrow is bound to be crazy and I didn't want the holiday to pass without me wishing you the happiest, most delicious Thanksgiving ever.
