There's something so pure about embarking on a new adventure and exploring all the cracks and crevices of Mother Earth's beauty. The smell of fresh pines as summer sets in on the coast of Oregon. An ever-lasting mist of salt water against your face during the winter months in Hawaii. Watching the last bits of snow melting on the mountaintops as spring comes to an end.
One of my fave hobbies is ridin' roads shotgun in our Jeep, doors off, hanging out snapping landscape pics. Believe it or not, most of these images were taken on the road exploring backroads.
Before my journey as a photographer, I was an oncology nurse. It was one of the most impactful times of my life. It taught me to slow down and truly cherish each fleeting moment as it passes by. Because it will do just that...pass by before you even knew it was there. It taught me to be vulnerable. It taught me that it's ok to just sit in silence when words don't seem like enough. It taught me that people just want your honesty more than anything. They want to see you for who you really are. Transparent, awkward, vulnerable, and fearless.
My purpose was once to help people let go of the life they lived. But now, I believe my purpose is to help people hold on to the life they are living.
