DRAWN TO LOVE + PASSION + BEAUTY

HOMEBODY THAT LOVES TO TRAVEL 

WAITING TO CAPTURE YOU LOVELY + SPONTANEOUS + PERFECTLY IMPERFECT MOMENTS.


HELLO! THANKS FOR POPPING IN TO LEARN A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME. FIRST, I'LL GIVE YOU THE BASICS. I'M A STUDENT IN MY 20'S THAT IS CURRENTLY STUDYING ELEMENTARY EDUCATION IN GRADUATE SCHOOL. OUTSIDE OF THAT, I LOVE TO TRAVEL, TAKE PICTURES, SWIM IN THE OCEAN, ADVENTURE WITH FRIENDS, HANG WITH MY FAMILY, AND LAY LOW WITH MY MAN.

I FIRST GOT INTO PHOTOGRAPHY AT THE RIPE AGE OF 11 WHEN MY GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GAVE ME MY FIRST LITTLE DIGITAL CAMERA. I WOULD SPEND HOURS ROAMING MY BACKYARD TAKING PICTURES OF FLOWERS AND ANIMALS. FLASH FORWARD TO MY COLLEGE YEARS WHEN I STUDIED IN ITALY. I WAS CONSTANTLY CARRYING MY CAMERA AROUND AND TAKING PICTURES OF EVERYTHING AROUND ME. LIKE LITERALLY, EVERYTHING. FOOD, FRIENDS, BUILDINGS, SUNSETS, YOU NAME IT. THEN MOVE FORWARD A LITTLE MORE TO THIS PAST YEAR. TURNS OUT MY BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS SAW MY POTENTIAL EVEN MORE THAN I DID. I WAS ASKED TO TAKE NUMEROUS SENIOR PORTRAITS FOR PEOPLE AND I LOVED IT. I NEVER EXPECTED THE JOY AND HAPPINESS THAT CAME FROM CAPTURING MOMENTS FOR OTHERS. I KEPT SAYING TO MYSELF "HOW'D I GET SO LUCKY? HOW DO PEOPLE TRUST ME? I THINK I WON THE LOTTERY!" SO HERE I AM, A GIRL AND HER CAMERA, JUST TRYING TO CAPTURE PRECIOUS MOMENTS.  I LOVE THE CREATIVE PROCESS THAT PHOTOGRAPHY GIVES ME, AND I ALSO LOVE ALL OF THE AMAZING PEOPLE THAT I HAVE HAD THE CHANCE TO CONNECT WITH BECAUSE OF IT. 

THE OTHER PAGES TO THIS WEBSITE ARE DEDICAED TO HEALTH AND TRAVEL. I HAVE A HUGE PASSION FOR HEALTH LARGELY DUE TO MY SWEET MAMA. SHE AND I SHARE A PASSION FOR FINDING HEALTHY, WHOLESOME, AND HOLISTIC WAYS TO LIVE LIFE. I LOVE TO SHARE MY FINDINGS AND KNOWLEDGE BECAUSE I THINK THAT WE CAN ALL BENEFIT FROM LIVING A LITTLE MORE PURE AND SIMPLY. TRAVEL IS ALSO A HUGE GIFT THAT I'VE BEEN GIVEN AND IT HAS TRULY SHAPED ME INTO WHO I AM TODAY. I'VE BEEN SO FORTUNATE TO TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY MY WHOLE LIFE. IT HAS HELPED ME LEARN SO MUCH ABOUT MYSELF, MY PASSIONS, OTHER PEOPLE, AND MY PLACE IN THIS WORLD. IT IS ALSO A KEY REASON I DISCOVERED MY CALL TO ELEMENTARY EDUCATION. 

WHEN STUDYING IN ITALY, I WAS PURSUING INFLUENCER + SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING. I KNEW THAT WASN'T MY TRUE PASSION, BUT I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS. IT WASN'T UNTIL I BEGAN VOLUNTEERING TO TEACH ENGLISH AT AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN FLORENCE, ITALY THAT I COMPLETELY CAME TO MY SENSES ABOUT WHAT I WAS PLACED HERE TO DO. WALKING INTO THE CLASSROOM EACH WEEK BROUGHT ME MORE JOY THAN I COULD'VE EVER IMAGINED IT WOULD. ONCE BACK IN THE USA, I IMMEDIATELY STARTED PURSUING EDUCATION WITH A DRIVE AND ENERGY I HAD NEVER SEEN IN MYSELF BEFORE. I'M OVER HERE LITERALLY COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS UNTIL I HAVE MY OWN CLASS OF KIDDOS TO TEACH!

SO, I GUESS THAT IS ME IN A NUTSHELL. I'M A GIRL WITH  A WHOLE LOTTA INTERESTS AND PASSIONS. I HOPE THIS HELPED YOU TO GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE MORE! I'D LOVE TO DOCUMENT YOUR STORY, HAVE A GOOD CONVERSATION, OR EVEN GRAB A CUP OF COFFEE WITH YOU. LET'S BE FRIENDS.
