  • Although life in the city is full of stress and drama I’m happy to  know there are places where we can go to get away from it all. #happyplace
  • Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. —Mark Twain
  • Can you guess what he’s showing his little sister? 🙈🌿✨
  • If you’ve heard me say it once, you’ve heard it 1,000 times: I absolutely love what I do! I love capturing special moments  and I love taking creative risks. It’s been said, though, that the highest reward for good work is the ability to do better work. Looking back, I’m truly proud to see how far I’ve come… but I still dream of someday becoming a travel blogger. So to that end, I’m keeping my nose to the grind. Thanks so much for being a part of this incredible journey!
  • Who else would be too excited to explore the church at Hvalsnes and not be able to take an extra minute to put on their rain pants during a hail storm? Just me? Ok....
  • What were you like as a kid? I grew up in Pittsburgh and was painfully shy—and that really shaped me. The time I spent alone led me to explore my creativity. Without that, I don’t think I’d be the photographer I am today! What shaped you most during your childhood?
  • What if I told you that family photography is not just documenting your kids, but creating memories? And I count it a privilege every single time a family trusts me to do it. ❤️
  • Siblings: children of the same parents, each of whom is perfectly normal until they get together. — Sam Levenson
  • “Life is about the adventures you take and the memories you make. So travel often and live life with open eyes and an open heart.” — Katie Grissom
  • sweet dreams 💫
