JennifHsieh is a space for my rambling thoughts and snaps of my everyday style. I'm based in Astoria, Queens and I share a home with my two derpy cats and my equally derpy fiancé.

My Photographers: Home Edition

My Homeboy
I've known Jim since he moved to Jersey in 7th grade.  He's one of my best friends and I can look like complete crap around him and not give a damn. We've had our numerous ups and downs but we made it through them all and I don't know what I'd do without him. He goes to college in NYC so I don't see him often but whenever we're home he always offers to take pictures for me. During the summer we even went on trips to different areas around NJ just to discover new locations for my pictures. For example, he was with me when we drove out to some electrical towers for photos, to a nearby valley, and to sketchy areas in our town (including where he is in this picture that you'll recognize from this post). He'll probably kill me for choosing this picture to post, but I just wanted to show you guys how silly he is. During this photo shoot, he sang "A Whole New World" the whole entire time (both Aladdin and Jasmine's parts - making his voice two octaves higher for Jasmine).

 My Wadsworth
I've also known Kirsten since 7th grade (I seriously made some amazing friends that year, didn't I? :P) and she's got the most amazing sense of humor. I can be completely weird around her and not feel stupid. I don't see her as often as I'd like but when I do we always have an amazing time. I'm glad we were able to stay just as close even when we went our separate ways in college. Over the summer we went on a few adventures and got some gorgeous photos wherever we went. We often went to the beach, which is where this photo of her is from (you'll recognize it from this dynamic duo post). Oh, and she always has the best sunglasses, if you couldn't already tell.  ♥

Tripod Number Two
So I did not know this sexy piece of plastic since 7th grade (unfortunately) but he's still there for me through thick and thin. He even takes my pictures when it's raining out as you can see from the rain droplets upon his onyx-colored frame (from this post). The tripod I featured in my last post broke in the middle of the summer since it was about 10 years old so I bought Donald as a replacement. I think I should stop featuring my tripod(s) in my photographer posts since they seem to steal the spotlight...maybe? Unless you guys demand more of Donald from now on (I wouldn't blame you guys). But Donald really is my main man when it comes to taking pictures at home.

But now that I've covered all my photographers (both at college and at home), from now on you'll see what they're wearing only if they've recently accompanied me on a photo shoot (specifically in the past month since this is most likely a tri-weekly feature). You'll more easily (and quickly) recognize the photo shoot location from recent blog posts. :)
