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!

My family lives in Fort Myers, FL, and I see a new place every time I visit them. Naples Botanical Garden was the latest […]

Daufuskie Island is one of my favorite places in the US! (And I’ve been to 46 states so far, but few places compare to Daufuskie Island). It’s an island in South Carolina near Hilton Head, and it’s a pretty secluded place. I’ve been several times since I was 10 years old, and every time I […]

Christmas at the Biltmore is so magical! I had visited the Biltmore in Asheville, NC previously during the summer, and seeing it all lit up for Christmas was quite an amazing transformation.
