Ode to Overcast

Ode to Overcast

Overcast, you are given such a bad rep! Endless people rushing to pick the sunniest day- The brightest day. Little do they know what you can give. Little do they know that you hold the key to beautiful couple photos and beauty magazine level selfies. No squinty eyes, No blown out highlights, just a wonderful, gradual transition from light to dark.   Do you like my poem? Get it printed…

Mid-year check in!

Mid-year check in!

Can you believe it is almost July?!?! 2018 is flying by. When I think about it, there is a TON that I’ve done this year and I am super grateful to have spent my first part of this year kicking some butt. I am working on my next six months with my business and before getting to into the planning of my new projects, I want to hear from you. I…

How to stay creative when working full time.

How to stay creative when working full time.

I currently work full time at a start-up and have my own business on the side. I also maintain my relationships with friends and my partner. It isn’t easy and sometimes one of those things suffers, for sure, but I don’t buy it when people tell me that I can’t have a great career and a great relationship. It’s all about balance and priorities. I am not always great. I…

A Day in Manhattan

A Day in Manhattan

My Dad is from and lives in Southern California and I only get to see him a couple times a year. When he let me know that he was going to be in Manhattan for a bit I knew I had to make it happen. Some might question whether visiting any place for only a day was even worth it. The answer is, even if it wasn’t to see my…

The Starving Artist Persona is Flawed

The Starving Artist Persona is Flawed

Somewhere along the line, when we were growing up, we were told that only tortured souls made good artists. We were told that our art is not as great as those of artists that have fallen down the spiral of alcoholism due to their passion. The artist that refuses to paint anything because he’ll never create anything as good as what is in his head is called a genius. We say…

Wild Woman

Wild Woman

Renee and I have been meaning to get together and take photos for a long time, but I actually first met Renee when I was in college. I was in Painting and she came in and introduced herself to the whole class. I didn’t get to interact with her much then, but I remember being drawn to her energy. We started following each other on Instagram and I fell in…

Baltimore Murals!

Baltimore Murals!

Baltimore is full of art and color! You may already be familiar with my work with Mary England, self-love extraordinaire, but driving around the city and taking photos with gorgeous wall paintings is super fun. The fun part is, you can have images taken of yourself and the entire mural or we can pick details of the mural and use that as backdrop! There is only limited bookings available for this…

Solo Travel to Ireland

Solo Travel to Ireland

I went to Ireland by myself and didn’t die! Traveling solo has been a goal of mine for some time now. It is the ultimate “I do whatever I want” and such a confidence booster. I finally got the chance when I traveled to Dublin, Ireland in early May. To be honest, I was nervous the last few days leading up to it and I got off the plane, caught…

How creating art helps you grieve.

How creating art helps you grieve.

This last week I lost a person that I spent three years with. We did break up and were not the best of friends after, but I always said that over time, we would be able to talk again. He died on April 20th at 9am. I have done a lot of grieving and gone through the being upset and crying and then angry again. I did do the normal…
