I’m missing Portland so much already! I didn’t realize how little lush green we have in Phoenix, until I saw how much there was in Oregon! Well, that’s a lie, I’ve absolutely noticed that this place I call home is mostly filled with brown and rocks, but I just to pretend that I love it! Haha. […]

As many of you know, I decided to spend a good portion of my summer in Portland, Oregon. You can read about my decision here. I ventured out on this journey almost 4 weeks ago with one of my best friends, Casey! Casey and I have been best friends since 7th grade and for those […]

This post is slightly embarrassing… or a lot embarrassing, I can’t decide what I’m feeling. Haha. But it’s also not embarrassing, because it shows growth and the process of learning, which I am proud of. When I started taking photos of people, I had no plans to own a business, I just knew I liked […]

This can be a bit of a vulnerable thing for photographers to do. Taking photos is obviously the biggest part of what we do… but another part is finishing them through editing. I am someone who doesn’t love to do too much extreme editing. I don’t like to make my subjects look plastic or have eye […]

I like country music. A lot. Speaking of country music, haha, Lady Antebellum has a song called “Compass” and I’ve been quite in love with that song recently. The chorus says, “Let your heart, sweet heart, be your compass when you’re lost, and you should follow it wherever it may go.” I’m not lost, but […]

My apartment burnt down 5 years ago from today. You’re probably wondering what that has to do with me becoming a photographer, and I will be telling you about that! But first, I’d like to tell you about the fire and how it changed my life! :)   I remember the day so clearly. I […]

Today is my 25th birthday! My GOLDEN 25th birthday. For those of you who don’t know what a golden birthday is, it’s when the day of your birth matches the amount of years old you are. I am turning 25 on the 25th, therefore it’s my golden birthday! :) People who are in my life […]

Looking back on this year, I feel like it happened in fast forward. I remember last New Year’s Eve like it was yesterday. I’m so thankful for all the experiences I’ve had this year! Living in LA for the summer was definitely such an important part of my year. Being able to explore a new […]

Okay, I have a confession: I’m a professional photographer who (up until a couple weeks ago) has never had professional photos taken of me. Sure, I had yearbook photos taken and I admit I got glamour shots done in 6th grade, there was also the event of my sister’s wedding, but I never went outside with […]
