Hey ya’ll! This is pretty self explanatory. If you know me at all, you know I’m OBSESSED with the love languages, and mine is 100% gift giving + acts of service. So I’m so so stoked to be sharing some of my favorite lil + big photography items, that you might either want to buy yourself, or tell your loved ones to buy it for you! haha
To start ya’ll off, this little card case is my absolute favorite! It fits 10 CF cards and I always have clipped onto one of my cameras while I’m shooting!
Here is my absolute favorite camera strap when I just using one camera! I absolutely love supporting local creatives, and pendleton fabric is beyond amazing! I already have two different patterns because I’m so obsessed!
Hands down the best double camera strap ever. It’s actually comfortable, doesn’t rip out your hair, your cameras won’t swing around and hit each other. Basically it’s incredible! India Earl + Rose Anvil worked their asses off to create the perfect strap! Check it out you guys!!
This little lens pen is a cheap little lifesaver! It completely wipes away all those smudges, water marks and anything you get on your lens. And its oh so tiny! Basically the best lens caps ever. They fit all your lenses, are stretchy, and are weatherproof. So basically they are the best ever.
This speaker is ALWAYS clipped to my camera bag! I love using it for all my shoots. It makes the shoot so much more fun, and takes off the edge for a lot of nervous couples. Alsooooo, its waterproof, so all you PNW photographers need this one.
Hands down my favorite headphones. They block out so much noise, so whenever I’m editing at the airport, a coffee shop, or at home when my hubs is yelling at videogames or my dogs barking at the mail man. These are my lifesaver!
If you’re like me at all, then you LOVE writing down notes. And you already know I love pendleton products…so these notebooks are pretty much my favorite!
I recently got this fanny pack to wear when I’m photographing weddings. And so far its been a lifesaver! I can carry my keys, cards, batteries, cell phone, chap stick…basically a ton of stuff. AND its cute.
This is by far one of the coziest sweaters ever. I wear it WAY too much while editing or traveling. It’s so cozy, and I love the “Always More” meaning behind it. These words remind me that there is ALWAYS MORE to look forward to, MORE than meets the eye, MORE to someone’s story, MORE to be thankful for, MORE to give, MORE to unearth, MORE to learn, MORE fun to be had, MORE blessings to receive, MORE wisdom to gain, and MORE reason to love. Also, I just love Audrey Roloff so much, and how inspiring she is to so many people.
Just because this is the cutest travel mug, and is actually practical. It ACTUALLY fits in car cupholders, keeps my coffee nice and warm, is adorable, and you can turn the top anyway so you can hold it anyway. Also, the amazing lady who makes this mug + so much more is such a wonderful person, and I love supporting her!
Okay I’m a huge blanket person. I own WAY too many but I’m going to show you two of my favorites. Here is the first one. This blanquil is a lifesaver. I deal with a lot of anxiety, and generally it surfaces when I feel over worked or over whelmed. So those days when I have 10+ shoots to edit, and 50+ emails to respond to, this blanket just calms my nerves and makes me feel so much better.
And if you are a traveling photographer, this blanket will be your new best friend. I love having this cozy blanket with me for all my cold + snowy shoots!
Now to show ya’ll my two favorite camera bags. I use them both ALL the time!
To start ya’ll off, heres my favorite little bag. This leather Ona Bowery bag has been EVERYWHERE with me. It handles the rain so well, and can carry two lenses while I have my camera on my side, OR it can carry one camera with a lens on, and another lens.
+ my favorite adventure camera backpack. This pack holds all my gear, + my laptop, + hard drives, batteries, chargers… And its comfy AF. Its called the Wandrd Prvke Bag, and I have the 21L with the camera cube inside.
+ the camera cube,
Always sharing my favorite local artists, so if you love Christmas, and want to get something a lil personalized, check out these ornaments. I already bought so many custom ones for all our dogs and all our friends dogs! Head over to Kalen Rivers amazing shop to see what else she’s made!
