THE GIRL BEHIND ALL THE PHOTOS

I shoot with a Nikon D810, and I will get up crazy early or hang off a cliffside for the perfect shot! I love living in Philadelphia, and I’m obsessed with Denmark, spicy food, sunsets,  colorful cities, Viking history, and my Siberian Husky, Annika!

I spent a weekend in Grand Rapids, Michigan last fall and had a great time! I definitely recommend visiting in autumn if you’re able to because the changing leaves are so beautiful, but even if you go during another season, you’ll still have a great time. I do think you only need a few days […]
