LIFE: This is MY Blog

Life is happening.
I have been contemplating whether I should post my personal life stories on my blog, or whether I should stick to my photography and travel stories only – but then I realized, it’s my blog.

SESSIONS: Kelley & Alden (+1) almost there

Another session with Kelley and Alden.
This glowing mom-to-be is due to give birth any day now, and she’s making pregnancy look like a piece of cake!

Getting Caught Up & Getting Away

Getting caught up with blogging; Scott visits me in American Samoa, and a weekend trip to Samoa. Life on the fringes is the life for me!

Create: February on Paper

February was a good month for my creative process. I got back into journaling and watercolors, took more photos for the fun of it, and challenged myself to #MakeSomething everyday. I’m essentially rekindling my childhood passion for all things analog and DIY. I trust...

Photo Diary: Aunu’u Getaway

Aunu’u is a quiet little island just 15 minutes away by ‘alia (Samoan water taxi). I have visited many times before and for being barely 0.6 square miles, I thought I'd just about explored everything… But this time is different, it is rediscovery with context. It is...

Balancing a Long Weekend

The long weekend was a blessing in disguise. I didn’t make any plans because the weather forecast was expected to be torrential rain and heavy winds. In fact, I wanted to do absolutely nothing—which is hard for me—with the exception of doing at least one productive...

Babbling: Almost 25

I’ve always been the type of person that seeks to accomplish something before a deadline, usually birthdays or yearly goals. I love being able to say that I did it, it’s under my belt, what next? I turn 25 in a month and I’m scrambling to cross off some personal goals...

Swimming with cuties

These cuties really enjoy the ocean and eating salty watermelons. I invited my coworkers and their kids over last weekend for a swim, and it turned into a mini photo shoot of the girls because they are just so darn adorable! Colette and Stuart's daughters are...

Reading: Amber Mozo’s Chasing Light

Do you ever kind of fall in love with someone's story? That's how I felt about Amber Mozo's story. It started when she was about 10 years old.  Her father, the famous surf photographer Jon Mozo, passed away doing what he loved, photographing surf on the North Shore of...

Photo Diary: Adventures in Queenstown

Welcome to the adventure capital of New Zealand - Queenstown! My boyfriend bought us flights from Auckland to Queenstown in the South Island and our plan was to pick up a rental car (that we got for FREE!) and we would road trip it all the way back up to Auckland in...

Photo Diary: Auckland

13 JAN 2017 Travel Auckland is one of those places you either love or you hate. I didn't do much research beforehand and had no expectations for the "City of Sails", but after spending the first few days of my quick New Zealand tour in Auckland, I was definitely...

Field of Lavender Dreams: Road Trip Day 1

10 JAN 2017 Life Travel It's New Years Eve and I'm on the road, leaving hectic Queenstown and its hordes of tourists behind in search of a nice quiet campsite close to Arthur's Pass. We've just embarked on our road trip - destination: Auckland! But the road is long...

Our home for a few days on the NZ North Shore

7 JAN 2017 There's nothing better than feeling at home, especially when you're away from home. We spent our first few days at this lovely Takapuna home that Polly (bless her) booked for us on AirBnB. Just about fell in love with the entire north shore because of that...

How To Pack for New Zealand (2 weeks in December)

18 DEC 2016 Travel Let me just start by saying that I traveled through New Zealand’s summer season, and so this list was compiled with temperate weather in mind. I packed all my clothes and toiletries into my Nike duffel which is so convenient because you can either...

Jones Turns One

It's always such a wonder when you see a kid go from your friend's baby bump to a walking laughing little human in the blink of an eye. Mia and Jeremy brought this adorable little dude to the world and he has grown so much! Keep Calm. Wander On....
