BTS: Shooting Photos for The Joyfull Now

Hey Hey Hey!

So, several of you have been asking who did the professional photos for my blog. I am all for giving credit where it is due, and they were taken by one of my dearest friends, the wonderfully talented and amazingly sweet, Dina Rohira.

Dina has an incredible eye and I absolutely love shooting with her. Most of the time you forget that she's even taking your picture; it just feels like you're hanging out and catching up. I LOVE working with Dina because she is so incredibly laid back and extremely encouraging. Wilhelmena Models is definitely not knocking down my door anytime soon, but Dina makes me feel like I could be a supermodel! She genuinely fills you with confidence and ease, and that's why her shots turn out amazeballs, simply because you end up feeling comfortable in front of the camera.

It was actually taking pictures with Dina that I decided to launch my blogging journey. I had toyed with the idea for some time, and Dina and I had a conversation in which she pressed that I should start a blog. Well, after going to a secondary location, a random stranger approached me and told me I should start a blog because of how cool the shots were. And finally, that night at church a friend randomly told me in passing "you should start a blog...I'd read that!"  3 times in one day?!?!  Is that not confirmation or what?  And thus, The Joyfull Now was born. 

Here are some more photos from our shoot, as well as a couple behind-the-scenes pics!

 I love the colors captured in this one, and the height of the buildings in the background.
