GET TO KNOW ME

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’m a sucker for historic architecture, and I loved how well-preserved the historic downtown was while being mixed with street art and more modern architecture.

When Stephanie and I were on our Midwest road trip and visited Chicago, the number one thing everyone (and Google) recommended we do was a Chicago river architecture tour because it’s the best way to see Chicago. And they were right! If you’re going to Chicago, you definitely need to do a boat tour, and […]

I did a fall road trip in the Midwest starting with a drive through Michigan, and there are so many cute towns to explore! I definitely want to go back to see more, especially with all the beautiful fall foliage. If you’re staying in Grand Rapids, bigger cities like Detroit and Lansing are a pretty […]
