Most Valuable Currency You Have

The effect you have on others, is the most valuable currency you have. Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart, and all that will be left of you, was what was in your heart. You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world today. And you only ever have two choices, love or fear. Always choose love, do not let fear play against your playful heart.

Be in the mindset to accomplish what you never imagined you could.

Fall In

*FALL IN*

HOWDY Readers!

I haven’t posted in about a year. Keeping me busy, the Army has with all of this training.

I have to keep it short for now, but my life has changed, I have changed, and I am ready to fall into busy times with photography, business, blogging, and travel very soon. I will be home September 28.

I’m excited to share all of my experiences with you.

In the mean time, have a good summer and buckle up for the new school year!

Ta Ta for now from Fort Leonard Wood!

Love is in the Air <3

Oh boy Oh boy, it is THAT time of year again, my fellow internet users.

“What time is that, Adriane?”

IT”S ALMOST VALENTINES DAY!!!!!!!

My photo assignment for The Corsair Newspaper,  is to shoot couples for a Valentines story of gushy love. Since I was out roaming the Santa Monica Pier this afternoon, (which is conveniently down the street from my house) I decided to shoot a few pics.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t supreme lighting time but I am obviously going to reshoot during the late afternoon golden hour on Sunday and Monday.

At first, when I was walking around, I was super nervous. I am not quite sure why though because I always photograph random people. Maybe it was because I had to go up to cute, gushy love couples. But once I started- I had fun talking with them and learning about their relationship!

SOOO AH 1, AH 2, Ah GO!

This here is James and Georgina. They were just visiting the pier today for a quick date after a busy morning working.

Jinwoolee and Sy Choo spend their vacation together on the Santa Monica Pier. They are visiting from Korea and when I asked how long they have been together, and after talking for a brief moment in Korean, Sy Choo said they have been dating for “500 days.” That was kind of the most adorable response I have ever heard. Absolutely Adorable people, 500 days.

Berneese and Isiael were just hanging out on a bench watching the waves crash. They said they had been together for two years but I think they felt nervous at first because they weren’t touching each other so I told them to get close and show some love!!

Image

Ok so I promise I am not a stalker, but I waited for them to get off a ride at the amusement park because they were the cutest couple ever. This picture of them definitely captures their adorableness and FUNNESSSS in their relationship. Props to you two, Stephanie and Denis!

THESE GUYS WERE SO BOMB! They make me smile so hard!!! My roommates met up with me at the pier after shopping and Catherine went up to these guys in the snack bar line and we went over to this colourful door. Karie and Matt have awesome style and such a fun relationship. Such a pleasure to meet!

This was my first round of practice pictures for the story. Have to step up my photo game and make some amazing photographs at the golden hour tomorrow!

Do you guys have a special someone? What is your favourite thing to do together? :)

Preparation of a Rally

Thursday was busy night.

Arriving at my high school, El Diamante in Visalia, California, I met my friends and we walked into the gym together.  I spent my night making pictures for the Fall Varsity Sports and Organizations practicing their dance routines for next morning’s rally.

Flowers For Love

Flowers from my Beautiful Boyfriend.  

Daniel gave these to me as apart of his asking me to the Harvest dance on Saturday!

I am surprised they have not died yet- in the past they wither away too fast- so I must be doing something right this time! :)

I hope everyone has had a great weekend and I hope you have a fantastic week! 

Who Am I?

Dear Readers,

I bet you would like to become more familiar with the person you are going to be following for the new few years. Well, for an introduction, my full name is Adriane Yelena Hale.  But you should be surprised to learn that I wasn’t born with this name. “Why?” you ask.  Well, that is because I was adopted at three months old.  My adoptive parents adopted me from the city, Rostov na danu, in Russia.  I was born with the name Vera Anatoleyevna Velishco.  Pretty cool, eh?

Presently, I am going to be a senior in high school.  I play varsity soccer and I am involved heavily with the media department at our school.

My passion is photography.  My goal and hard work is to be able to photograph for National Geographic.

Miss Hale
