This is me
And yes my eyes are blue
I love taking pictures of people in the wild. There’s a story to be told behind each image and how it relates to my life. Enjoy!
After I graduated, I spent countless hours at Starbucks working on my website and applying for jobs. This picture is a reminder to not give up on my dreams and continue to push through tough times. It also encourages me to take time to rest when necessary to avoid burnout.
Serving 9 years in the Army reserves taught me to appreciate the freedoms that we have in America and not take them for granted. I love this picture because it is a direct representation of the struggle to gain freedom.
As a millennial working in a creative field, it’s imperative to keep up with current trends and discover ways to leverage various platforms. I’m constantly scoping the feeds looking for interesting content and striving to keep myself relevant.
While I was in grad school, I had an opportunity to work with a photo booth company and witness couples’ happiest moments come to life on their wedding day. This job taught me that you can find happiness in whatever you do and reminds me to constantly strive to be happy in my career.
Murder mysteries have always been my jam. I used to watch Unsolved Mysteries as a kid, and although the host’s voice terrified me, I couldn’t turn it off because I loved it. I’d probably be a crime scene investigator in another life.
Let’s face it, life gets crazy! With all the drama going on around us, it’s important that we take time to escape and find peace in the things we enjoy.
Staying curious has helped me overcome obstacles and develop new skills. This image is a constant reminder to continue searching for inspiration and never lose curiosity.
The Story Behind the Owl
My fascination with owls stems from the strong relationship I have with my aunt. When I was younger, she started collecting owl figures and every time I visited, I’d ask if I could play with them. I always wanted the owls that were too high to reach. They were typically larger, and as a kid, bigger always meant better. As I’ve grown up, my passion for owls hasn't gone away. In fact, I have a collection of my own, though the perfect owl is still, just beyond my reach.
