Mardi Gras portraits! | 2014 flashback

Do you all remember how I went to Mardi Gras last year and took a bunch of photos? Well I’m headed back again this year and ready to rock again. And this time, I’d love to work with anyone who needs some portrait action down there. Little kids all dressed up in homemade costumes for the parades? Let’s do a little family session! Your krewe needs a refresh for the webpage? I’m there. Engaged and want to capture some of the city you love? I’m on it!


I’ll be in NOLA from February 14 through the 21st, so we’ve got plenty of post-Tuesday time for photos. Drop me a line to amber at amberwilkie.com to set up a time! Furthermore, I got to march with Tucks last year and it was *super rad*. If you need some photos of your parade, hit that email up there.

February Creative Unblock

On the theme of me doing All The Things this year, I’m attempting to complete The Jealous Curator’s Creative Unblock series. I got materials for January but they’re still sitting in the bag from Kinko’s. It’s a constant nag on my conscience – go do the workFebruary’s task is considerably easier, so I’ve completed it! In the first week! It was fun and my bathroom shelf is cleaner.

I’m going to type some more stuff here so WordPress banishes the actual image to the jump. It’s a gif and I know how annoying it would be for all my website visitors to have to scroll past it. I don’t know why I have so many objects I never use – I suspect it’s a common thing. A hair straightener? I haven’t had hair long enough to straighten in probably two years. Even the nail polish remover is a stretch – since I so rarely paint my nails whatever polish I have has congealed. And all the hair dyes. I use the same one all the time. I’m boring in my weird-hairness. That should do it!

January: Stray Frames | Personal

Like most Januarys, last month I pledged to take more personal photos this year. I thought I was doing OK on this front until I realized I already blogged the photowalk I hosted mid-month, which means I already posted my best random images from the month. Nevertheless, we press on! But before we do, I’m hosting another photowalk this Sunday. All are welcome!


January was a bit of a rollercoaster for me. I always anticipate that I will be bored in the winter because many fewer people get married or want to do outdoor shoots this time of year. So I cram my schedule full of so much stuff I end up running around crazed, sometimes much busier than in the summer. I say yes to every invitation and my calendar is nutty. But I like it this way.
