From a young age, I became obsessed with capturing life around me. My parents bought me the original iPhone and all I wanted to do was take photos with it. I used every photo editing app to play around with my images and posted them to a beta version of a little app called Instagram. After a volunteer trip overseas while in high school, I finally received a DSLR for Christmas and never looked back. Two years later, I launched this website to share my photos and my inspirations and my favorite things, all in one sweet little space on the internet.

A Quote To Live By

"You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, the breath of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. -

You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single second of every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colours fill your mind until there is nothing left to do but explode. There are no wrong answers. Inspiration is everything. Sit back, relax, and take it all in. Now, go out and create something."

I DRAW MY INSPIRATION

FROM WARM LIGHT AND LITTLE DETAILS

There's something about the way light refracts off of a disco ball and the way that sunlight dapples through tree leaves. I always find myself capturing lovers' hands intertwined or someone's hair moving while they dance. A blurry photo can still be just as moving as one perfectly in focus. I think it's pretty dang cool that you can immortalize a moment with a camera, and that I get to do that for you, whatever moments you want to remember.
