A Photo Playlist

I love music as much as I love photography. I jam to tunes for every occasion, especially after a shoot when I get nestled down for the long photo editing process ahead. I‘ve always got something playing (even if sometimes it’s just in my head)!

So just because I can, I’ve put 12 fun photos I’ve taken with what I think is the perfect song for each! (Click the Youtube link to listen) Also bear with me, as some of them are from when I first started snapping professionally ...many moons ago.

Here goes:


1. Love You Madly, by Cake

love you madly.jpg

The way he is smiling at her craziness.. You know they are mad for each other :)



2. My Heart Skips A Beat, by Buck Owens



3. #SELFIE, by The Chainsmokers

Remember this song? It came out near the end of my college experience. I hated it at first, and then shamefully started to sing it... It is appropriate for this picture.



4. Smile, by Uncle Kracker



5. Bad, by Michael Jackson

Had a hard time with this one. The other choice was Poker Face by Lady Gaga, but the leather jacket just makes me think MJ.



6. Kiss Me, by Sixpence None The Richer




7. Amazing Grace, by Elvis Presley

I just had to share this one because I love my parents. And Because they are cheesin it pretty hard (due to the wine)
Their love for each other through the good times and bad, and their undying love for God is something to be admired. Also the old sound of Elvis is all the childhood nostalgia for me.



8. Howlin' For You, by The Black Keys



9. Scooby Doo Theme Song


You just know these three are up to something. Solving mysteries perhaps?



10. Here's To Never Growing Up, by Avril Lavigne


Graduation, can be exciting. You start a whole new life outside of school and try to be an adult.. But let’s face it, sometimes you never want to grow up. Also Avril really takes me back to my punk middle school dayzzz.



11. We R Who We R, by Ke$ha

These friends are who they are, and they ain’t changin' ;)



12. Simple Song, by The Shins


“...I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone. Don't go thinking you gotta be tough, and bleed like a stone. Could be there's nothing else in our lives, so critical as this little home... ”
I heart The Shins.


This was slightly harder than I had anticipated, but was super fun! Let me know if you have a favorite photo/song combo, or if you think you have a better song for one of the images. I’d love to know!

Thanks for reading (and listening)
