the forgotten frames || april.

auntie.

dress: madewell // headband: sam moon // earrings: gifted.
i. snapped one of the aunt while on a shopping trip at the domain.
ii & iv. fun photoshoot with rachel and carolyn.
iii. went on a walk on a cloudy spring day (more on that later).

april: i didn't take many pictures this month, mostly because finals preparations sucked me into its clutches. however, now that i can breathe, i can say april's been my favourite month so far. concerts, shopping trips, dance lessons and formals are few and far between and heartily enjoyed. i'm spending a heck of a lot more time in the Word, and a cassette player with beethoven's complete set of symphonies has been following me around wherever i go. optimism has brought me a long way, to sum it all up. and i know i'm continuing to go up.

  15. questionnnn: how is your aunt related to you (like, is she married in, not a "technical" aunt)? I'm asking because my aunt is black (and one of the BEST people ever! I love her so much) and I get a lot of "HOW THE HECK IS SHE RELATED TO YOU WHITE GIRL". :P so I guess I have a natural curiosity. :)

  16. "Gurlllllllllllllllllll."

    The above is an actual quote of what I said when I saw that last picture. Absolutely stunning, that's what you and this post are. It is law. ❤

    P.S. Also, this is random, but do you shoot in RAW? And do you edit in Lightroom?

    1. 1) you're too sweet.
      2) i actually haven't shot in raw yet. i'm waiting for the right time to start. and that time would be now, but i take too many pictures for my own good. so... probably for my next shoot, i'll shoot in raw. i butchered that sentence. whatever.
      3) yes! i used lightroom 4, and vsco 02 & 03 + some free presets that some photographers make online.

    2. 1) Thank you. :)
      2) Oh, I love VSCO! I just have the app on my phone right now though, haha. What are some of the free presets you use? *currently has Broke Teenager Syndrome*

      xoxo, Annika

    3. haha, i wish they were free, but they're not. they're like... $119 for each pack. all the details are on the vsco website :)

  20. I was kind of disappointed with myself this April. It's usually my favorite month ever, but I kind of didn't enjoy nature to its fullest, didn't take many pictures/try to improve my photography, and started watching a lot of Youtube videos. I also procrastinated a lot...Don't I always? XD But I make up for it somehow.

    I'm going to make May better.

sometimes i do not understand why you guys like me so much, but the fact that you do (and that you keep coming around) makes me happier than you can even imagine.
