The entire front of this monument was covered in tourists, prom photo opts, a wedding ceremony and three other bridal parties getting their portraits done. 😳Sometimes it really works out to see things differently. This is technically the backside of the Jefferson Memorial. It doesn’t face the water, it faces I-395. There was absolutely no one on this side and complete chaos on the other side. This side offered partially diffused light and the other side was in harsh light..... but that’s the “front” and because it’s the “front”, that’s where everyone flocked to. It reminds me of the way people automatically run to gazebos to get “good” pictures. 😂 I talk about the art of seeing the world differently in our KJ Lighting and Location Course because I think as photographers, we need to embrace this side of our creative brains instead of just trying to do what we think our clients want. I’m sure my clients thought that we were going to use the front of the memorial... like the rest of the world. But instead, they trusted me and they got these portraits instead. 😍So what is the moral of the story? 1. Thank you Chris and Emma for trusting me. And 2. As photographers, we need to remember that we are being paid to see the world differently and make decisions like this to produce the best result for our clients... even when it isn’t the “normal way” of doing things.  #kjeducation #kjweddings #kjbrides

My DC experience - literal sleepless nights at work, amazing dates with shitty men, the ability to make new friends after the age of 18, a horrible apartment, a handful of mental breakdowns, spending multiple paychecks on SoulCycle and an unhealthy obsession with the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. NYC what ya got?

Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, is best known as one of the Founding Fathers. His humility was also known widely- He didn’t include being president as an accomplishment for his tombstone. Paradoxical as it may seem, this memorial houses a grand 19ft tall bronze statue of the man and has become one of Washington’s most recognizable moniments.

As Spring comes to a close, I couldn’t be happier to have experienced it in D.C.

“Added to this was Jefferson’s governing philosophy, which opposed the accumulation of debt and the levying of taxes. Although Jefferson’s actions as president often contradicted this philosophy and seemed to hew more closely to Hamilton’s, he did oppose spending money on the kind of navy that would have been required to challenge the British. Yet at the same time he refused to accommodate British policies he considered humiliating and damaging to the young American republic. The result was a policy, not uncommon in American history, in which hopes ran ahead of realities and in which means did not match ends.”

A reminder: Self-care is not necessarily about taking baths or getting pedicures or going on vacation. It’s a set of habits and routines that are cultivated to preserve mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Don’t let capitalism fool you into thinking otherwise.
