#JCB14

Last weekend, the GBHSA hosted the 3rd Annual Jazz Cat Ball at Old Car Heaven, benefitting the Greater Birmingham Humane Society. It was a great time, with plenty of entertainment and fundraising opportunities. We are still waiting on the final numbers, but it looks like the attendees were even more generous than last year.

Here is a video I shot during set-up and the actual evening. It was so much fun to create and I got to meet some new people along the way.

Weekend getaway

This past weekend, I got to celebrate Allison’s bachelorette weekend in PCB. We had a great time hanging out together at the house, playing games and just being able to get away for the weekend.
What girls’ trip is complete without a beach photoshoot? None.

Londontown

How is it that I never put my London pictures here? Well, it’s been almost a year, so here’s a little throwback.

Last Janterm (a mini semester at Samford during January), I was lucky enough for my family to fund a couple of the best weeks of my life. I got to study abroad with a bunch of my friends in London, and was even there for New Year’s Eve. We watched the fireworks over the Thames River, right next to Big Ben.

I can’t think of a better place to study art and theatre. I saw a total of eight plays/musicals and went to a ton of museums and historical buildings.

I also set out to make a video of each day’s adventures. It was a lofty goal, and I still haven’t finished, but I’ll include what’s done below.

Andrew & Alexis

I took these pictures back in March (I can’t believe how long ago that was). Andrew asked me, Hannah and Nathan, along with his best friend Tim and Alexis’s cousin Cameron, to help him propose to Alexis. First of all, what an honor to be a part of this day! We had a great time being “found” as Alexis went through the scavenger hunt Andrew planned for her around Sewanee. He was waiting at the last station–this huge cross on an awesome overlook–to pop the question. It couldn’t have been more picturesque, and he added their silly style throughout the hunt.

Bid Day 2013

I got to attend Bid Day (also known as “Squeal”) at Samford UniversityΒ on Monday, Sept. 13. These pictures should explain the reason for the nick name for those of you who have never been to a Samford Bid Day. You can’t help but smile at the pure joy on the girls’ faces!

Robert & Mallory

My little, Mallory, is getting married to Robert this weekend! She asked me to take some engagement photos for them. Nathan and I snapped some great shots (I took the ones featured in this post) and Hannah helped with the styling.I’d never taken engagement pictures before, so I was excited to get to experience it. It took some research via Pinterest to set some of these up, but the ones we took on the fly turned out to be some of my favorites.

 

Downtown

I got the chance to take photos of some of the sophomores in my sorority for recruitment earlier this semester. They are precious and not camera shy in any way. We went downtown to Morris Avenue to visit the Peanut Depot and check out the train tracks.

Ellie’s First

My best friend’s niece turned one year old and they threw a circus themed party for her. Her name is Ellie and her room is elephant themed, so this made perfect sense! There was a game of fish pong, where the kids got a chance to win goldfish to take home with them, just like at a fair. The kids faces were priceless when they won a new pet, as were their parents when they were told they were taking home a new fish! As always, I took my dog Millie with me and couldn’t help but include a picture of her. I think my favorite picture of the day is the one where Ellie is hiding behind an iPhone.

Marketing Farmers

For my Public Relations class, Leslie Graf and I took a little trip down I-65 to check out the Alabama Farmers Market. We are doing a project for them, so we are literally marketing for farmers. Wordplay! But I digress. It was open-air, with friendly people and good-looking fruit & veggies (even though I don’t normally think vegetables look tasty). Β The man working there was so fun to talk to. He said he had been working there since 1957, “before you were even thought of!” He attempted to juggle apples for us. I ended up buying those Alabama Grown Golden Delicious apples and I ate two in the hour after I left the market. It’s a miracle my body didn’t reject them after all the bad food it’s used to getting.

Zeta Acre

The first home tailgate of the year was this past weekend. Samford played West Alabama. I brought Millie, who quickly stole the show of course. My sorority had the biggest tailgate on the Quad and was appropriately named “The Zeta Acre.” Β We had three tents all spread out with tables in between and great mexican food from Lime.
