I love the raw emotion on the little girls face. This photo is from a family in D.C. I babysat for during spring semester of my freshman year. Hanging out with kids taught me a new sense of patience I never had before. I enjoyed my time with the family and I learned about the excitement of having a new baby and the unconditional love that comes with it.
This photo was taken in a small church in Luxembourg. It's one of my favorites because I love how the light hits my friends face and her peaceful expression. At the time, the church was empty and the empty chairs gives the feeling of solitude; It gives the notion that it's only the woman and her God.
This photo is one of my favorites, technically because I love how the editing turned out and I believe the technique was executed perfectly. The photo was taken in Porto, Portugal in May of 2018. I was woken up in the hostel room at 5:00 AM when my roommates were getting up and packing to leave. They were being terribly loud and having gone to bed very early the evening before, I couldn't fall asleep again. So, I got up and headed out into the empty streets. Normally, this street and church is crowded during the daytime. At 5:30 in the morning, it was eerily quiet, there wasn't anyone on the streets and the church was generally peaceful to sit and marvel at. I'm not usually a normal person, but this photo makes me want to be a morning person while traveling.
This photo was taken at the Womens March in 2018. The neon pink sign against the Washington Monument gives the photo a nice contrast. The picture is also framed by out of focus people in the background. The fist holding the sign also mirrors the fist in the background. I feel like the bent sign represents the struggles women have face throughout history and the message on the sign illustrates the message that we, as women, are still here and fighting.
This photo was taken on top of Untersberg Mountain, just outside of Salzburg, Austria. My friend and I took the cable car up to the top of the mountain and were disappointed because we couldn't see anything because of the clouds. After a half an hour of not seeing anything, the clouds cleared off long enough for me to take a few pictures and the view was breathtaking. The picnic table anchors the foreground nicely and the other mountains in the background give the image depth.
This was not "the kiss" most people think of. However, it is my favorite kiss from the wedding because it's so full of passion and love. The couple saved their first kiss until their wedding day to make it a little extra special. Another thing I like about this photo is the amount of trust the bride has in the groom to not drop her when he dips her; it's a symbol of her faith and love for him.
My favorite thing about this photo is the contrast with the organ and the church walls and ceiling. The walls are a soft white with pastel pink trim while the cieling has pastel blues and yellows which mix well together. Then the silver and brown in the organ pop against the pastels to create this sharp contrast. This photo was taken in outside of Basel, Switzerland in 2017.
This photo was taken when I came home for spring break my freshman year of college. Here was when my sister found her passion for make up and modeling. It was nice to see that she found something she liked and was good at. Our hobbies pair well together and I even helped her create her own Instagram to showcase her pictures. If you're interested, her Instagram handle is @kaela.bremer.
