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!

And we saw some pretty incredible sights along the way 🙂 I didn’t know much about the area around Mount Rushmore before planning our trip (wanting to see Mount Rushmore was mostly inspired by “North By Northwest”), but I honestly enjoyed […]

When we were planning our Midwest road trip, I wanted to visit North Dakota but didn’t know where to go. I love national parks so I chose Theodore Roosevelt National Park without knowing anything about it, and I’m so glad we visited!

Minneapolis was our one stop in Minnesota on our Midwest road trip (don’t worry, I’ll be back to Minnesota to see more sights!), and we covered a lot of ground! We were there for one day and we saw most of the city, so I don’t think you need more than a few days in […]
