Paros, Greece. I've been wanting to visit this little island for years. Slow paced, country living where the flowers are abundant and the water is crystal clear. We stayed at the most beautiful guest house on a farm where the owners made their own wine. It felt like home and was everything I envisioned and more.Read More
Venice might possibly be one of the most photogenic places. Every corner a new canal lined with boats and lines of laundry. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about Venice, having read about the crowds and how some people found it quite dirty. But I absolutely loved it. The character, the charming little alley ways. While there were crazy crowds on the main roads, my favorite part was being able to walk a few alleys over and have the whole place to yourself.
And well, Florenence, is just Florence. How could you not fall in love.
Holy crap. It’s been a good while since I’ve touched this thing. Let me dust the cobwebs off on this ol’ blog of mine.
I’m currently traveling through Europe and Southeast Asia for the next 7ish months. In the summer of 2017, my husband and I said goodbye to our home in St. Petersburg and decided to head out for a trip around the world. Between quitting our jobs, selling most of our stuff, renting out our house in St. Pete and downsizing our whole life into two backpacks – it’s been a busy year to say the least.
As I’m writing this, I’m currently sitting on the terrace in our Airbnb in Paros, Greece. 12 countries in to this trip of ours. I have a mountain of photos to share from where we have been so far, and where we have yet to go. Typing this still feels surreal. This travel dream has been on my mind for a good 6 years now. Always being a “someday” type of thing. Feels pretty damn good to have that someday be today.
I realized I never blogged one of my favorite elopements from awhile back. These two. So much love went into this day. The University of Tampa made the perfect backdrop for this intimate wedding. You and your lover, surrounded by a handful of your closest people - what more could you want.
This Tampa elopement is one of my all time favorites. So grateful for the ability to capture these two!
I just got back from a trip over to the West Coast and am already missing it greatly. We adventured around Lake Tahoe and the San Francisco area for a week with my family. Nothing fuels me quite like traveling to new places and hiking through the woods. And hiking we did. By the end of our trip, we hiked about 30 miles. My nephews were ready to push me off a cliff if I made them go on another hike. I was banned from saying the H word.
Videos have become my new favorite thing. Here's a little video I put together of our trip:
The beauty is unreal in Lake Tahoe. Water as clear as the Caribbean surrounded by nothing but mountains. Mountains and water - my two favorite things. I always said if Florida had mountains it would be perfect. I would have stayed on this cliff all night if I could.
This kid. He kills me with that face. He's Treydon and he's my second oldest nephew. I have 5 nephew's and a niece that all live on the West Coast.
After leaving Tahoe, we made our way to San Francisco for the day. San Francisco is one of those places I could definitely see myself living. The streets, the bay, the people, the culture - I'm obsessed. If only it wasn't so damn expensive.
It's no secret that I love street photography. I'm happiest when I'm wandering through streets, photographing the crazy, random things that happen. I think that's what I love most about street photography. It's not posed, it's not choreographed. It's as is. Real. It's moments that mostly go unnoticed and that's the beauty of it.
Till next time, Cali.
There's something to be said about a fresh start. Clean slate. New beginnings.
So, here we are. New space. Fresh perspective.
