portrait of reno

i'm really enjoying the photographs of jennifer garza-cuen over at hey, hot shot! check them out; they are intriguing, bizarre and also a little bit lovely.

of the series of photos that she submitted, which take place in reno, she writes:

"I tread the line between the staged and the real. My characters appear and disappear, swallowed by the landscapes. The interiors that surround them take on their lost personality. Reno becomes the central character."

the makers

i could get lost for hours scrolling through jennifer causey's photo project 'the makers.' causey photographs people in her community (brooklyn) who make beautiful, handmade, artisan products. the resulting photos are gorgeous. hope you enjoy this peek.

have heart

one of the best pieces of advice i've ever heard is that you have to love yourself before you can fully appreciate someone's love for you.
i think that means all of yourself, not just liking the good qualities, but really embracing your little imperfections and even the big imperfections. that's a tall order. and its something i think i'll always be learning and improving upon. but i think that's ok.
so, happy valentines day, loves.
whether you have a valentine or are solo flying bird on this holiday that's all about showering others with shows of love, i hope you take a little time today to be sweet to yourself and remember all the reasons why you're amazing and loved.
