Life, Simplified

Fierce, Fierce Photography, Philosophy of Life, Photography, Quotes, The Artist Life

I have been pouring and drooling over Lenonardo Da Vinci quotes. I have long loved the original Renaissance man.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

Having moved from an apartment to a condo to halfway across the country I definitely have had opportunities to go through all of my stuff. There is something about moving that makes you go “why do I have this?” “I don’t want or need this anymore but I don’t want to throw it away” “Do I give this away?” and then when you go to Goodwill to give it away you see everyone else who has given away their junk. I remember when I dropped off some clothes at Goodwill how the room was fillllllled with stuff. Pointless stuff. I hate stuff. I love it when I go to someones house that seems a little sparse. This is one of those things that living in American culture that just seems to happen. I don’t think anyone really intends to accumulate so much stuff but if we’re not intentional about what we have we end up having an absurd amount of stuff.

You may have heard of the idea of a “capsule” wardrobe. It’s an idea about dressing that has floated around the blogopshere. The main idea is that you have a small amount of clothing that you absolutely love and makes you feel great. How many times have you walked into your closet or opened your drawers and lamented “I have nothing to wear!” A capsule wardrobe let’s you wear your favorite pieces over and over again but in a different way. It’s about simplifying your life right down to what you wear.

When I read Leonardo’s words on simplicity I think of our homes and what we have in them, I think of what we put on our backs and keeping these things simple. It’s ultimately one of the most sophisticated ways for us to live according to Da Vinci. And it’s fierce =D

When you think of living simply what do you think of?

Fiercely,

alexandria

P.S. More Da Vinci quotes coming!

I hope you have the wedding of your dreams! I hope whoever you have photograph your special days captures it exactly how you want. Some of the best advice I got on having a successful marriage was “besides the whole God thing…the way to have a great marriage is to screw everyone else.” Ha! Seriously, someone told me that at my wedding shower. SO. I offer the same advice to you, it’s you and your spouse now. You have to change your mentality to an it’s “us” against the world. I also offer that advice to you for wedding planning! It’s your day, plan the day you want – screw everyone else!

Morning Dew

Fierce Photography, Photography

In Oklahoma, the weather is always crazy. One day it’s 100 degrees plus, the next there’s a tornado, there are earthquakes frequently(this is a rather new occurrence), there is flash flooding and blizzards, droughts, record breaking everything. Sometimes, all this precipitation can occur in the same day or week. During the summer though you can pretty much expect it to be HOT and humid all the time. However, a few mornings ago it was in the 60s and it was glorious! I am so ready  for fall! It was a very dewy morning so I went to take some photographs of my plants with water droplets on them. I was not disappointed!

Baby Love, Fierce Photography

What does a canvas board, some black and white checkered fabric, and a staple gun get you? The perfect background for little babies! I had my hubby take some shots of me with it too and it really only works vertically. I need to make a bigger one for adults because I prefer landscape or horizontal rather. Thankfully though I was able to get fabulous shots of my little girl!

Happy!

Roar! I am happy!

Glamour!

Model baby! I can feel the glamour!
