  • Hello. Welcome to my blog!

    Please check out our new fine art photography and graphic design business!

    This blog is no longer active but it is a great chronicle through my initial first few years as a photographer. The blog started while I was at photography school in Massachusetts, covers my time working in Florida and Georgia, and chronicles our recent 6 month adventure working with orphans in Thailand. Thanks for visiting!

Leaving for Thailand!

The past couple of months have been beautiful and full of changes. Paul and I left Savannah, drove West across the country, got married on the Oregon Coast, enjoyed Ashland and explored Portland, then fell in love with the Californian coastline. Now it’s finally time to board our plane to Thailand where we’ll be doing service work at the Baan Unrak orphanage! We will be with the orphanage for at least six months and will be able to travel around a little as well. We are so grateful for this opportunity and hope that we will be useful there. Paul and I will both post some of our experiences and photographs here on this blog to share with anyone who wants to follow along on our journey. For now, just a couple of phone snapshots.

About to leave for the airport!


If I look different, its just the hair. I just had my hair cut to donate to the American Cancer Society. I’m pretty anxious for it to start growing back but I’m sure the cut will be practical for traveling around in such a hot climate.


we are married!

Paul and I are married! Our little celebration was full of blessings and laughter with our loved ones; absolutely perfect in my eyes. I could not be happier to be Paul’s wife. Here’s a little sneakpeak blogpost of our wedding photos by Jade and Matthew Take Pictures! Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.

great american roadtrip part three – new mexico

Below are some more images from our pre-wedding coast-to-coast road-trip! I took all of these photographs in and around Taos, New Mexico. The New Mexico landscape and the Taos Pueblo were incredibly peaceful and beautiful. We had a delicious fry-bread there made from blue corn, similar to funnel cake. I will post the final set of road-trip images soon!
