Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
-Dorothea Lange

Let us just start off by saying I love to write, but I honestly do not think I am good at it. I do it anyways. There is just something about writing your thoughts out that can bring a sense of satisfaction and happiness.

While I dream of waking up to a fresh cup of coffee and a full breakfast on Saturday mornings, instead you will find me running laps around town trying to fit in my long runs for my marathon training. I have this crazy desire to run a marathon in all 50 states. I still have 42 to go! After my long runs, you can guarantee I will have my cup of coffee in hand alongside a tall glass of chocolate milk.

I am in love with seeing new places and experiencing new cultures. There is so much to learn from others and their ways of life. I have been able to go to places around the world that I never even dreamed of going. I don’t travel enough, but I enjoy being at home with my little family. I recently got back from traveling to Norway and have already been itching to go back. The only problem with going back to the same place is that I don’t get to go and experience a new place. This is something that I am torn up about inside. I have yet to go back to the same country. I leave a part of myself whenever I visit somewhere new.

I have a deep desire for community. I love hosting people at my house whether it is for dinner, a cup of coffee or a tasty dessert. I love getting to know new people which is probably one reason I like photography. You can learn something from every person you meet if you just take the time to listen.

Come join me on this journey as I take pictures and make new friends. If you can’t tell, I am more than willing to travel anywhere and would love for you to show me around your community. Go ahead, contact me! What are you waiting for?
