Baltimore has been quite busy these last couple of years performing amazing in sports… I would have loved to see the Baltimore Orioles make it to the World Series but I still  want to congratulate them on their awesome season.

Just walking around Baltimore, I usually stumble across some really cool things like this statue of former mayor Thomas D’Alesandro.   Sitting with the statue gives a great view of a beautiful park area located in the center of a building complex.  I have been finding tons of these little oasis in the city, just a great reminder that sometimes we have to escape city life.

This dress right?  I love the print!  My photographer had the best idea to shoot at the Rawlings Conservatory in Baltimore.  A very beautiful place you should visit if you are planning a trip to Baltimore, or even if you live here and haven’t been yet.  Filled with plants from the tropics, desert and the Mediterranean environments, the Conservatory, serves as a cool getaway from the fast pace of city life.

And now back to this dress…Little Mistress is a great online retailer of some of the most beautiful and feminine dresses.  The price is perfect and the quality is great!  I’m really not a print person but for some reason I was drawn to this Girls on Film Chevron Geo Print Dress and I wasn’t disappointed!  Right now, Little Mistress is offering 10% off your first order!  Shop Now

This is the last of the brown…. I swear.  I really wanted to share the lighting from this street shoot.  It just takes a minute for the sun to shift to give an image a completely different vibe.  Photography lighting is the must-have for great photo work.  The light differences in these images were in a matter of a few minutes.  The darker is very dramatic lighting but I love the look of the photo!  I also have a great photographer, so that helps as well.

Bloggers always ask me which camera I use but I think technique and skill is the most important elements of achieving great photos.  Practice, practice, practice… is the best advice I can offer.
