Boca Grande

Chelsey -

The fam and I took a little trip to Boca Grande today to search for a place to stay on Labor Day when the rest of the family come down. We didn't get to explore a whole lot since we weren't there long, so I cannot wait for the weekend we'll be there! The beach water is sooooo pretty oh my gosh! ♥‿♥ I'm hoping by the next time we are there, I'll have a brand new camera. *crosses fingers* Enjoy just a few pictures I took today.

So much green

Chelsey -

Wow hello! It's been a while since I've posted pictures... oops. These are just a few random photos I've taken the past few months that I never got around to posting. I'm suddenly craving pictures and want to take a bike ride and just take a bunch of random ones. I just wish the weather wasn't soooo hot to be outside. -_- (Also sooooo many green pictures wow)

June - from the Inside

Krissy -

Had this Sunday off from work today which is nearly unheard of. I didn't know what to do with myself, home alone and bored. I decided to take some pictures inside since I didn't know where to go outside. There's nothing really special in here but I tried to get creative to entertain myself. :)

Summer Has Begun...


It seems that in every post I write, my opening photo graphic becomes more intensified. I miss making graphics so I use my photos to get it out. :) I wish I could make a living off a blog. I really do. And photos. I love this stuff. I'm trying to figure out how to get this site more popular. It helped a lot when we still had Flatts Online up and running but I'm so busy now and all of the galleries and blogs we used are not working anymore. I think it's too far gone to ever get it back and it makes me really sad. I loved that site and how popular it was. It got this website a lot of hits but now it's all gone. :(

Summer is here! I'm enjoying my time off from school. Not looking forward to the fall semester - uninteresting classes! Next month I'm going back home and I'm so excited to see my parents and family! I'll definitely have a lot of photos to post after that. Anyways, here are a few I took last week. Very summer-y. :)

Tower of the Americas


You know what. I really want to be a photographer. A wedding photographer, and engagement and just couple photography. It would be so fun to get to know the couple and match their photography with their styles and personalities, using fun props and just getting shots of them being themselves. I would die to have that as a career. Hopefully someday I can do that, even for a hobby.

Also, I miss scrapbooking so much. I don't have anything to scrapbook though since I used to do concerts but don't have time for those anymore. :( I really love the little journals that people are doing. Kind of like the Project Life thing, but I want to do one for this year. With the summer off, I need something to do so I think I'm going to aim to start one really soon. I'm so excited!

So anyways, my love and I went to the Tower of the Americas last week. He just graduated and I just finished my semester so we were ready for a relaxing day, free from all the college stress. After his road rage due to driving downtown, it turned out to be a beautiful day.

April 2013 #2


These are more photos from mine and my sister's "photoshoots". The goal of this was to get new, updated pictures of us to send to our parents for Mother's Day and at the same time, an early Father's Day gift. They loved them and I love how they turned out!

April 2013

Krissy -

I finally got my sister to come with me to take pictures. I never want to go alone and don't know where good spots are. We went to one park and it was kind of lame. Then we went to a different one that had trails through the woods and it was so pretty!! I got attacked by fire ants though and it wasn't fun. I cannot wait to go again so I can take more pictures.

Easter 2013


I miss my family when holidays come around(well, all the time really). My love and I had plans to go to his parents for Easter and I was so excited to take pictures. Then I got extremely sick the week of. I had to miss three days of work, one day of school. It was nasty. I was so weak and lost a lot of weight. Easter Sunday was one of my first days of feeling better but I was still weak and couldn't eat much. Boooo! I wanted so much ham, corn, biscuits, and I filled my plate so much and realized my stomach couldn't handle it all. I was so sad. I did manage to take some pictures though, for the first time in a long time.

Spring Break 2013


This was really my first ever "real" Spring Break. Being home schooled most of my life, I never really needed a Spring Break. I never made it a big deal or went anywhere. I wanted to go to the beach so bad, but I honestly wasn't looking forward to going on the week of Spring Break when it would be packed and full of drunk, irresponsible people. Plus, my pretty Mama was down here visiting from Wisconsin and I felt so guilty leaving her. With all my worrying, I was extremely unaware of the fun I would have.
