  12. there´s a tag for you in my blog ^-^


  13. the lighting in your photos are perfect -- it's always a challenge for me. do you have any tips?

  14. Thank you Katrina! When I take photos, daylight is a must! I shoot in my apt. and I make sure I'm next to lots of window light. I use a white board. I make sure all other sources of artificial light are turned off in my apt., they can cast a weird glow on what I'm trying to photograph.
    I also make sure my camera's white balance setting is on Shade. I found that Shade works better in my apt. setting than Cloudy. I take lots of photos and I try different exposures.
    It's so fun and I enjoy it so much :) xoxo

  15. This sketch is just adorable <3

  16. Aloha Jo!
    Thank you (^•^) xoxo

So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to.
